macOS New App Release – FontAgent 9


Product Announcements Insider Software of San Jose, California has released FontAgent(R) 9 for Macintosh. Built atop FontAgent’s robust font rendering, searching, activation, integrity and metadata engines, the latest V9 edition adds an all-new tagging manager, nested sets, performance improvements, and more extensive support for macOS Mojave, Monotype SkyFonts, Adobe Fonts, Adobe Creative Cloud and Affinity applications.

FontAgent 9 Highlights:

  • Sharable tags for categorizing and organizing fonts
  • macOS Mojave, High Sierra, and Sierra compatibility
  • Support for Mojave’s Dark Mode
  • An all-new, optimized font-rendering engine for faster previews
  • Tight integration with Monotype SkyFonts and Adobe Fonts
  • Auto-activation in Adobe CC 2019 – InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, InCopy
  • Auto-activation in Affinity applications – Photo, Designer, Publisher
  • Auto-activation in QuarkXPress 2018
  • Group-by-tag display in the Table View
  • Expanded, speedy searching of font tags and comments
  • Improved font cache auto-clearing

Auto-Activation in More Applications:
FontAgent 9 significantly widens font auto-activation support, so as users open documents in supported apps, FontAgent auto-activates them in macOS. Auto-activation now works in Adobe Creative Cloud 2019 (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and InCopy); the Affinity product suite (Designer, Photo and Publisher); and QuarkXPress 2018.

Full Support for macOS Mojave and Dark Mode:
The V9 release is compatible with Mojave (macOS 10.14) and includes new support for Dark Mode. It also takes advantage of Mojave platform functionality and APIs to optimize application performance, font activation and font rendering. V9 is also compatible with the High Sierra and Sierra releases of macOS.

Sharable and Searchable Tags:
The most visible addition to FontAgent 9 is the addition of a new tag manager that lets users tag fonts and sets to classify them by project, appearance, job numbers, client, and more. FontAgent lets users search by tag to preview, compare and activate associated fonts easily. As users share fonts with others, FontAgent 9 shares their tags as well, adding an all-new level of metadata richness to the creative process for workgroups.

Nested Sets and Subsets:
Back by popular demand, FontAgent 9 adds nested sets for organizing fonts hierarchically by client, project, foundry or style. And in V9, when users share nested sets with others, the sets’ hierarchies and all their fonts are shared as well.

Monotype SkyFonts and Adobe Fonts Integration:
Fonts activated in Monotype SkyFonts and Adobe Fonts appear automatically in FontAgent and work just like all other managed fonts. The Monotype service offers access to over 11,000 industry-leading fonts and Adobe offers access to thousands of fonts as part of their Creative Cloud subscription service. Both include access to the popular Google Fonts library with over 915 font families.

Lightning-Fast Search:
The search facility in FontAgent 9 is expanded and improved to include a full spectrum of font characteristics including name, style, foundry, designer, tags, comments, ratings, and other metadata. Users can perform complex searches and save them as Smart Sets whose contents auto-update as they import new fonts into FontAgent.

Table View Improvements:
The Table View in FontAgent 9 now lets you group fonts by tag, which organizes the order of fonts in the table topically. Using tags and table groups is a fast way to easily view and manage related fonts.

Freeform Comments Manager:
FontAgent 9 lets users enter freeform comments for fonts to describe their associated projects, clients, colors, type settings, and design treatments. It also lets users search those comments to find the fonts they need and to use those fonts consistently.

Automatic Font Cache Management:
V9 improves the performance of its automatic cache clearing that heads off display problems, garbled fonts, strange font substitution, printing problems and application crashes.

Code Streamlining and Modernization:
FontAgent 9 is recoded in the latest Apple platform technologies to deliver better performance, sharper rendering, faster importing, speedier searches and more platform compatibility.

Share and Sync Fonts Easily:
The Sync Edition of FontAgent continues its role as a simple, cost-effective way to standardize, share and sync fonts across teams and computers. It makes fonts instantly available through the Cloud to others without the need to define libraries, create folders, maintain a server or find an IT expert.

Cost-Effective Licensing Alternatives
A perpetual license for FontAgent 9 Standard Edition is priced at $99 (USD) per user. FontAgent 8 users can purchase V9 upgrades or opt for a FontAgent Sync subscription for $59 a year. The Sync license includes free software upgrades and support and lets you archive and share fonts with others through cloud services provided by Insider.

Become More Productive on your Mac with File Tags – Part 2

Tech Tips – In Part 1 I talked about how tags can be added to files on your Mac. In Part 2 I will look at how you can use those tags to become more productive. NOTE: The following examples are done in macOS High Sierra 10.13.6.

Using tags with the Finder

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 4.41.38 PM

The easiest way to use tags is with the Mac Finder. First, we need to make sure that tags are enabled in the Finder. Open a new Finder window, then click on Finder, then Preferences.

Now select the third tab “Sidebar”. Make sure that the checkbox next to “Recent Tags” is checked.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 4.37.46 PM





Now click on the second tab in the Preferences window, “Tags”. This window allows you to select which of your defined tags you want to show up in the Finder Sidebar. 

You can also drag any tag you want to add to the Favorites to the space at the bottom. I have not found this to be very useful.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 4.55.22 PM



Now close the Preferences window and look at the bottom left of the Finder window. You will see several tags listed and at the bottom of the list “All Tags. . . “.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 4.56.26 PM

If you click on the “All Tags…”, a new column will appear in the window with all of the tags listed. If you now click on a tag (in my example ‘:Star Wars’), then every file with the chosen tag is displayed in the larger window to the right. What makes this powerful is that it doesn’t matter where the files are physically located. Every file with that tag on your Mac and on iCloud, regardless of which Folder they reside in, will be shown.

This provides you with a very powerful way to search your entire Mac for files. If you have tagged your files, you will be able to find them regardless of where you have stored them.

More Power With Smart Folders

Using Smart Folders can give you even more power. Using the technique with the Finder above you can only search based upon one tag. If you use Smart Folders you can search on as many tags as you want.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 7.06.53 PM

Go to Finder ==> File ==> New Smart Folder. This will open a window like is shown above. Now you can begin to specify the search criteria for what will be shown in your Smart Folder. At the far right side next to the ‘Save’ button click on the ‘+’ sign (Blue arrow above). This will open a space where you can begin to specify the search criteria. Click on the ‘Kind’ or ‘Name’ button noted above (Red arrow).

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 7.26.35 PM

A drop-down menu will appear. Click on ‘Other…’ at the bottom of the list as indicated by the Red arrow.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 7.09.32 PM

This will bring up a long list of search attributes. If you scroll down the list you will find “Tags”. In the example above I clicked on the checkbox to the right side so that Tags will now appear in the short attribute list. I also clicked on the line ‘Tags Tags associated with this item’.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 7.30.13 PM

Once I click on ‘OK’ that first search criteria will be set. I then chose ‘contains’ and entered the first tag to search for ‘:image’. I can add another search criteria by clicking on the ‘+’ indicated by the Red arrow. A search criteria can be removed by clicking on the ‘-‘.

Notice that when I click on the ‘Name’ button now ‘Tags’ (Orange arrow) appears in the list. I can now use this to pick a second or even a third tag to search on.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 7.37.33 PM

In the example above I have selected three different tags as my search criteria – ‘:image’, ‘:scifi’, and ‘:star wars’. The resulting 48 items shown in this Smart Folder are all files on my Mac that have those three tags set. These items can be physically stored in any folder on my Mac or my iCloud drive.

What this means is that as long as I am very conscientious about adding tags to files, it doesn’t really matter where I store the files.

Screen Shot 2019-03-14 at 7.47.13 PM

I can then save these Smart Folders by clicking on the ‘Save’ button at the top right. Note that in addition to being able to name the Smart Folder and pick where it is going to be displayed, I also have the option of including it in the Finder Sidebar.

A further advantage of using Smart Folders is that since they are Virtual the same content can appear in more than one Smart Folder. This allows you to sort your files in many different ways without having to move or make aliases for files.

In Part 3, I will talk about tagged files in iOS.

macOS New app Release – App Tamer 2.4.3


Product Announcements St. Clair Software of Denver, Colorado has released App Tamer 2.4.3. It introduces a new option to let managed applications run at full speed while your Mac is otherwise idle, as well as offering several bug fixes and other improvements.

The changes in version 2.4.3 include:

  • App Tamer can now be configured to let all processes run at full speed when the keyboard and mouse are idle (ie. you’re away from your Mac).
  • A bug was fixed that could cause App Tamer to quit if it was launched when the computer was under extremely high load.
  • Corrected a problem that could prevent App Tamer from waking apps when you clicked on them in the Dock.
  • Enhanced App Tamer’s ‘wake’ AppleScript command so you can wake up all applications.
  • Fixed a number of issues reported by App Tamer users.

More about App Tamer:
Some Mac applications, especially web browsers, continue running tasks or animations even when they’re supposed to be idle in the background. This can consume valuable processing power, reducing battery life and producing heat that increases fan noise. App Tamer’s unique AutoStop capability automatically slows down or pauses these applications when you switch away from them, and then restarts them when you click back to them. This frees your CPU and reduces power consumption.

App Tamer comes pre-configured to automatically manage Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Spotlight, Time Machine, Word and many other apps when they’re in the background. And customizing it for other applications is just a mouse click away.

System Requirements: macOS 10.8 through 10.14

Pricing and Availability:
App Tamer is free to try for 15 days. A license to continue using it after the trial period is $14.95 (USD). This update is free for users who purchased App Tamer 2.x or bought App Tamer 1.x after July 1, 2013. For those that purchased a license before that date, the upgrade is $7.95 (USD). App Tamer can be purchased through the website.

Become More Productive on your Mac with File Tags – Part 1

Tech Tips – I am always looking for ways to become more productive on my Mac. Before I get into how tags can make you more productive, I think that I need to explain what tags are.

What are tags?

Tags were first introduced in macOS Mavericks. As the name implied, tags allow you to add one or more ‘tags’ to any file. These seem a lot like ‘Labels’, but there are a couple of major differences. First, you can apply more than one tag to a file or folder. Second, you can search and sort your files and directories by tag (that will be covered in Part 2).

How to tag a file

So now that you know what tags are, how do you add them to a file? There are actually multiple ways.

Screen Shot 2019-03-12 at 12.33.10 PM

First is adding tags to files as you save them. In any App when you go to save a file, you not only get the opportunity to set the file name and location, but you can also add any tags to the file. In the above example, I am saving the file “Sources for World War II Info and Photos” from within MacDown and I have added the two tags ‘:wwii’ and ‘:web’ to the file.

I use the convention with my tags of always beginning them with a colon and making them all lower case.

What if you already have files? There are three easy ways to add tags to an existing file.

Screen Shot 2019-03-12 at 12.47.01 PM

First, you can use the Finder to browse through your files and find the one that you are wanting to add a tag to. Once you find it Control-Click on the file. That will bring up the window shown above. Note that towards the bottom is “Tags…”.

Screen Shot 2019-03-12 at 12.55.23 PM

Click on “Tags…” and that will open the window shown above. Here you see any existing tags for the file and you can freeform type in the dialog box the name of a new tag to add. In the above example the tags ‘:blog’, ‘:wwii’, and ‘:bookreview’ were already attached to the file. I typed in ‘:s’ to start to add another tag. As you begin typing in the tag if a match is found to an existing tag it will automatically show up in the dialog box. In the example above seven tags are shown that begin with ‘:s’. I can either click on one to choose it, hit enter to choose the highlighted tag, or continue typing in the tag name. You can continue to add tags until you are finished. This method allows the selection of multiple files and adding the same tag(s) to all the selected files at the same time.

Screen Shot 2019-03-12 at 1.05.48 PM



A second way to add tags is through ‘Get Info’. Control-Click on any file and in the Menu you get (see second image above) the option of ‘Get Info’ will appear. If you click on that, then a new window with information about the chosen file will appear.

At the top of this window is a dialog box where existing tags are displayed and where new tags can be entered.






Screen Shot 2019-03-12 at 1.12.15 PM

A third way of adding tags is by opening the file in an App that supports Apple’s Document menu. At the top of the window will be a small icon to the right of the file name (pointed out with the red arrow in the image above). If you click on that icon a drop-down menu will appear that both shows existing tags for the file and which allows you to enter new tags.

In Part 2 I talk about how tags can be managed and how they can be used to improve your productivity.

macOS New App Release – TextExpander for Mac 6.5


Product Announcements – Smile of Castro Valley, California, the developer of productivity applications for Mac, Windows, iPad, and iPhone, has released an update for TextExpander, the popular typing shortcut tool for smarter communication.

Scripting is even easier with syntax highlighting for JavaScript snippets.

“TextExpander’s new visual macros make this powerful feature more accessible than ever, to all levels of users,” said Smile founder, Greg Scown, “Under the hood, we’ve done a ton of work which includes updating the snippet storage format and re-writing the expansion engine. This way everyone has a consistent experience across platforms.”
