Insider Software’s FontAgent Pro 4 ($99) adds several unique new features to this award-winning font management utility. Our favorite is a keyword search that lets you search for fonts by flavor: scary, romantic, industrial, or any other term you can think of that describes the font you’re looking for. And you don’t even have to own the font to find it!
FontAgent Pro will look on the Internet for fonts that match your description and let you buy them. To us, that’s the way font “searches” ought to work.
Also new to version 4: an iTunes-like approach to font sets, including “smart” sets that dynamically update as you add fonts to your collection that fit that set’s description; built-in font integrity checking; and more.
