Fontcase focusses on metadata, and for every font and weight, you can add a wide variety of metadata. You can set tags, genres, assign designers and foundries and much more. They are no just pieces of text, but actually show up in the source list, right under your smart collections. Everything in the interface can be dragged; fonts to a tag in the sidebar or a designer from the source list to a foundry.
Of course you want to preview your fonts before you start using them in other applications, and Fontcase has a lot of options built in for this. You can preview fonts with any sample text you want and you can view individual glyphs, as a waterfall text and as body text. If you want to go in more detail, there's a special Compare-mode which was designed to compare a small set of fonts and allow you to choose the right font from them.
When we work with clients or in teams, we occasionally want to exchange fonts with other people. Instead of maintaining a dedicated font server or manually sending the fonts to other macs, you can now let Fontcase do the work. Just like in iTunes, you can share your Library with other people, but in Fontcase other people can also download fonts from your vault. You not only share fonts but also the associated metadata.
Feature highlights include:
* Collects all fonts in its own vault and carry it between macs
* Beautiful streamlined interface
* Activating and Deactivating fonts or entire collections
* Metadata support
* Preview options

* Print previews of your fonts
* Dragging sample texts and glyphs as pdf
