FontDoctor for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Damaged or missing font types, multiple versions of the same font, and confusion about which font is which are common Mac ailments. A house call from the FontDoctor may be all you need to cure your font woes. We found the interface to be designed for simplified control. A main window houses three working tabs: Diagnosis/Repair, Organize, and Inspect. Sadly, the demonstration version is limited and will not allow FontDoctor to repair, move, or organize fonts. Though we weren't able to test the suggested repair methods due to the limited capabilities of the demo, we were able to get a feel for the functionality of this utility by performing a scan of our drive, disk, and folders for diagnosis. Upon completion of the scan, the program quickly diagnosed the incomplete fonts on our machine.

Organizationally speaking, FontDoctor magically reveals every font installed on your computer. You can organize fonts by name or family, alphabetically, or by whatever organizational scheme suits your needs and style. To see and experience FontDoctor in its full glory requires purchase, but this demo version is a cool download for anyone who wants a quick glimpse of its capabilities.
