FontCard is a haxie that modifies the Font menu and the font panel in Carbon and Cocoa applications. It can add an icon that displays the format of a font next to the font menu item or font panel list, display the font name in the font face, group fonts into submenus, and add third party font collections to the font menu and font panel. Last but not least, it gives you the power of a professional font management utility for only US $17!

  • View the Font menu with each font displayed using its own typeface (WYSIWYG Font Menu);
  • View third party font collections (Insider Software's FontAgent Pro, LinoType's FontExplorerâ„¢ X, and Extensis' Suitcase Fusion) directly from the place you choose your font;
