Over the past few months, we’ve unveiled several new tools for type enthusiasts including the redesigned Fonts.com, our Fonts.com Web Fonts Extension for Adobe Photoshop and our FontGazer plug-in. All three were designed to make it easier to browse, experiment with and license type. FontGazer was introduced first, premiering as the first plug-in to enable font trialing and purchasing within Adobe InDesign. Three months later, we’re happy to announce a new version of FontGazer and to officially take it out of beta.
We gathered plenty of feedback from our users during the beta – valuable insights that have helped shape the direction of the product. It’s clear the community loves the concept of in-app font trialing. We also received plenty of suggestions for things to work on. Enhancements found in the latest build include a cleaner, more intuitive UI, a revert button that allows you to return to your default text after applying a font, integration of the new Fonts.com shopping cart, and a revamped, stable architecture. Best of all, FontGazer remains free. Download your copy today and stay tuned for more enhancements to come.
