I am bummed though that Extensis bought it…

Font Reserve is the best in Mac, but it’s not up to speed in Windows. <sigh>

Then again, I don’t know what is best in Windows. The Mac version of Font Reserve has a lot more features and makes it a very nice tool. The Win version is just missing them.

It still turns fonts on and off very nicely. I guess that’s the key thing. So, I’m still using it. I also use Font Navigator that came with CorelDraw and all it’s fonts. It’s better for viewing and understanding the fonts.

Actually the two programs together seem to meet my needs pretty well. Font Reserve for controlling what it active and Font Navigator for learning about them.

Hmm… I just copied the link from the About page in the program. I guess their site has changed since I last downloaded it…
