Linotype has released version 2.0.3 of its FontExplorer X Pro font management solution, adding support for the Mac OS X 10.6x (Snow Leopard) operating system.

The new version includes various enhancements, including the ability to see which languages a font’s character set supports. In addition, FontExplorer X Pro enables the ability to directly clear the font cache when using QuarkXPress 8 graphic design software.

Current FontExplorer X Pro users with Mac OS X Snow Leopard version 10.6x can receive this maintenance update at no cost through the integrated update function of FontExplorer X Pro or by downloading the latest version from, where product information can be found. A 30-day trial version of FontExplorer X Pro is also available for download for new customers.

Designed for easy organization and management of fonts, FontExplorer X Pro includes a host of features designed to enable precise control of fonts. Users are able to activate and deactivate fonts based on established criteria, such as activating user-defined fonts when opening Adobe InDesign, Illustrator or QuarkXPress applications, and then deactivating the fonts when applications are closed. Users may set up access to typefaces from a certain typeface foundry or all fonts tagged with a user-defined keyword. At any time, users may examine complete character sets of fonts, as well as the shapes and forms of individual characters. Users may also compare kerning pairs or create sample paragraphs to see how a font will look before committing to its use. When seeking new fonts, users may access an integrated, online store to browse and render typefaces in user-defined text strings, before licensing and downloading the fonts. Access to font files may also be regulated by passwords. Backup capabilities enable users to save font configurations, including pre-determined font sets and preferences.
