DiamondSoft Releases Font Reserve 3.0 for Mac OS X

Mill Valley, CA – February 20, 2002 – DiamondSoft Inc. today announced the availability of Font Reserve Single User 3.0 for all Mac platforms, including Mac OS X.With the new complexities of using and storing fonts in Mac OS X, the need for a true font manager is greater than ever. Font Reserve 3.0 not only offers all the features of the award-winning and highly acclaimed previous versions, but it adds new features specific to Mac OS X.

“While the publishing industry makes the transition to Mac OS X, effective font management is becoming an even more significant issue,” says Brian Berson, president and founder of DiamondSoft. “Users are faced with at least two new challenges – accessing fonts within applications that continue to run in Classic mode and juggling fonts among the many Mac OS X font folders. Our goal is to ease this transition and continue to provide the best font management possible for Mac OS X.”

The product, which features an Aqua interface and continuing support for all popular Macintosh font types, provides superior font management for applications running under Mac OS X as well as applications running in the Classic environment. Font Reserve 3.0 complements DiamondSoft’s full suite of font management applications, including Font Reserve Server for workgroups and Font Reserve Single User for Windows.

The ClassicActivator feature ensures that all fonts activated by Font Reserve in Mac OS X are also automatically available to all applications running in the Classic environment.
