What happened to Font Doctor’s other tools?


#1

Hi,

I found the organizational tools in the previous version of Font Doctor to be very helpful.

The latest version of Font Doctor v10.1, doesn’t appear to have any of these features.

I don’t mind that the features were removed, but what’s a good replacement?

Thanks!
Cheers,
M

You are correct, the organize feature was retired from Font Doctor in version 10. Sorry we weren’t more open about it.

After extensive review we found customers weren’t able to leverage the organizational structure from Font Doctor in Suitcase and vise versa. So we are exploring new integration options for organizing fonts between the two applications.

In the meanwhile, since font library organization is generally done once we suggest you stick with FD8 for that specific task. You can run FD8 and FD10 side by side. Let me know if you need a license to do this.

Do you have any feedback you can share about how you organize fonts or what features you’d really like to see?

We have been learning about the font organizational workflows designers use and hope to provide more integrated tools going forward.

Cheers,
Chris
