In version 3 of FontExplorer X Pro, Linotype has made a powerful font manager even more valuable and fun to use.
It can now import complete libraries, including sets, from Suitcase Fusion and FontAgent Pro. This makes it much easier to migrate to FontExplorer without losing your organizational work in your previous font manager.
