Linotype Releases FontExplorer X Updates
Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, and its subsidiary, Linotype GmbH, have introduced new versions of their award-winning FontExplorer X font management solution. FontExplorer X Pro 2.5.1 for Macintosh systems and FontExplorer X Server 1.5.2 for Mac and Windows platforms are available immediately from www.fontexplorerx.com.
FontExplorer X Pro plug-ins for Adobe CS5
The newly revised software for client computers contains plug-ins that automatically activate fonts when used with Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator applications from Adobe’s Creative Suite 5 Master Collection software. The latest version of FontExplorer X Pro also contains improvements related to the server menu and offline use.
FontExplorer X Server enhancements for Windows environments
FontExplorer X Server 1.5.2 brings the same facilities and characteristics of its Mac version to workgroup administrations operating in Windows environments. Users are greeted with a completely revised user interface of the server-system setting, and an improved backup function is now available. In addition, Windows administrators can now create master-slave configurations to optimize performance, such as regulating access to fonts hierarchically in order to distribute the server load among several devices. Workgroup administration for both Mac and Windows environments is handled through FontExplorer X Pro for the Mac.
