Northampton, UK (PRWEB UK) 5 September 2012
Today Extensis released a Font Management Best Practices Guide for design professionals working on the Mac OS X platform. The guide supports users of the new Mountain Lion operating system, which is compatible with Extensis’ industry leading font management system Suitcase Fusion 4.
Most designers work with hundreds, if not thousands, of fonts. Fonts can be incredible assets, but when improperly managed can cause undue workflow problems. Developing a logical approach to managing fonts is critical.
The Font Management Best Practices Guide was developed to help users of Macintosh systems understand more about managing their fonts. It contains recommendations and instructions that can help designers configure their system to minimise font problems and improve their work efficiency.
The guide helps OS X users:
- Ensure font availability during document design, production and output
- Manage multiple versions of the same font
- Reduce the burden on system resources
- Ensure new applications don’t change fonts without a designer's knowledge
- Eliminate problematic corrupt fonts
- Create groups of fonts for different projects
- Select a font manager
- Plan ahead for new fonts
- Perform basic system maintenance
- Improve the design workflow so that designers can spend more time designing
