Default Font Agent Pro Problem/Question

My situation: Mac / osx tiger / font agent pro 3.3.0

I have encoutered a problem with FontAgent Pro. Does anybody know a solution?

Many of my fonts refuse to import into the program. I go to import the font and in a few seconds get a message something like: "No fonts were imported. No problems were found." I would say 10 or twenty percent of my fonts behave like this. Lately I've been using FontBook as a work around.

Thanks in advance!

I cannot help you, but did want to say that I ran into the same thing. I have a huge font library, with many duplicate type families (though not usually duplicate fonts), and it seemed to give Font Agent Pro some sort of fit.

Right now the free Linotype FontExplorer seems to be the favorite Mac font manager. Have to confess that I haven’t set it up yet myself, but really must — I too have been limping along with FontBook.

A quick visit revealed that it is currently a Mac only application.

Nevertheless, a Windows version is being made available at some point. Hopefully sooner than later!

Let us know if it is useful once you have it up and running

Sorry — yes it is. She was asking about Mac font management and I didn’t think to specify.

Lino has been promising the Windows version for ages; have no idea when it will be released.

I should imagine that Linotype is waiting to see if the Windows version works with Vista; it wouldn't be much use unless it does.

"Waiting to see if it works" is not how software development works. If they're really interested in having it work on Vista they would be busy already ensuring it does work, as many developers do with their applications. The question is - are they?

Everyone knows that. But (a) Linotype may have not got it to work yet, (b) even if it is sure that it works, Vista hasn't been released yet, and (c) it may be considered safest to make quite sure that it will work with the production version(s).
