FontCard is a haxie that modifies the Font menu in Carbon and Cocoa applications. It can add an icon that displays the format of a font next to the font menu item, display the font name in the font face, group fonts into submenus, and add font collections to the font menu. This version addresses issues with Quark’s measurements palette and crashing with Photoshop 7 under Jaguar. FontCard is priced at $17.
For a complete list of what’s new in version 1.2.4, read on…
New in Version 1.2.4
- Finally fixed a problem that caused the Quark measurement palette to not show an FC enhanced menu.
- Now rebuilds the font menu completely if the disabled state of the FC enhanced menu and the real font menu don’t agree. This fixes the problem with FreeHand disabling all the fonts in the font replacement dialog even though FreeHand doesn’t “own” the FontCard menu.
- Fixed a problem that would cause FC to take up 100%+ of the CPU if a font was auto activated in some circumstances. It was bad.
- Fixed a problem that would cause some fonts to not appear if there was a gap in the indices of their font name table. This would happen with many Linotype fonts (such as the free ones included with the free QuarkXPress 6.5 update) and the font named “identity” in particular.
- Fixes a crash with Photoshop 7.0 and Mac OS X version 10.2 “Jaguar” Version 10.2.8 that would occur when selecting a family with multiple styles.
