FontGazer Comes Out of Beta with New Features and UI Enhancements
Over the past few months, we've unveiled several new tools for type enthusiasts including the redesigned 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.
