FontExplorer X Pro Brings Powerful, Intuitive Font Management to Windows
WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider
of text imaging solutions, and its subsidiary, Linotype GmbH, have
launched their award-winning FontExplorer® X Pro font
management solution for standalone Microsoft® Windows®
platforms. FontExplorer X Pro version 2.2 for Windows is available at www.fontexplorerx.com.
Standalone Windows users can now take advantage of comprehensive
features and an intuitive look-and-feel that are an integral part of the
workflow for thousands of Macintosh® customers. FontExplorer
X Pro for Mac® computers has become recognized for its
feature set that far exceeds competitive offerings yet remains easy to
use even for casual users. Last week, Macworld gave the newest Mac
version of FontExplorer X Pro its highest possible five-mouse rating.
Prior to today's launch, FontExplorer X Pro was available for Windows as
part of a client-server set-up. "Windows is the preferred platform in
some creative areas which often aren't managing and centralizing their
data with the help of a server. These customers have typically had to
refrain from deploying professional font management. Now we've closed
the gap," said Tobias Meyerhoff, senior product manager for FontExplorer
X at Monotype Imaging's Linotype subsidiary.
