You Control: Fonts1.3.1

21 July 2008

Get a single font menu.

Overview

With You Control: Fonts, you get a single font menu that is consistent across all of your favorite applications. Rather than modifying the font menu that belongs to an application, the You Control: Fonts menu resides in the Mac OS X menu bar next to your default system menu items (like the Airport monitor for example). No more having to remember if an application's font menu is in the menu bar or in a palette that is on the left, right, top or bottom of your monitor.

The You Control: Fonts menu can even be configured to appear wherever your mouse is when you press a hot key combination that you define. If you also have You Control, you can access the font menu in even more locations so that it is anywhere you want it.

The You Control: Fonts menu will not only display the fonts in their own typeface, but will also give you a waterfall style preview of each of your fonts. You choose the text, the size and how many lines to display.

For users of Suitcase Fusion, You Control: Fonts will display any font sets created in Suitcase Fusion. Using the AppleScript support built directly into Suitcase Fusion, you can now view your font sets and even activate and deactivate your font sets from the You Control: Fonts menu.

Works as promised with all true Cocoa apps, but users of earlier versions of Adobe apps (pre-CS) will be S.O.L. as expected. It's nice to have a global, consistently placed font menu. It works more reliably than Unsanity's FontCard, but supports fewer apps.

Still works with these design apps in 10.5: InDesign CS4, Illustrator CS4, QuarkXPress 8.1, FreeHand MX and RapidWeaver 4. Also in text editing apps (Bean, Textedit, etc.) but not NeoOffice.

Works very well with supported apps (only selected Carbon apps). Must be located in main "/Applications" folder, though. I find it useful even in Carbon apps that it doesn't support since its menu is globally available and shows previews of all fonts in their actual typeface (in all styles), and in multiple sizes. Its not a Haxie (which have caused me MANY problems in the past) and has been very stable and reliable for me.

WARNING: PHONES HOME. Also, it doesn't seem to do anything that FontCard doesn't, so ... why bother?

Despite claims that this app will work with Adobe InDesign CS, Photoshop CS, Adobe Illustrator CS and Quark 6, all of which we have at work, it would only work with Illustrator on my Mac. Having a readily-available WYSIWYG view of fonts is nice, but it would be much nicer if one could change fonts in the various apps through the YouControlFonts menu as promised.

Unsanity's FontCard has been completely rewritten and is far superior to this app for only $17--Fonts is now $29.95, not $19.95 as listed here and once was. Fonts is not as nice in the GUI department and works here and there.

This application controls fonts for a VERY limited number of applications (not even all Cocoa apps). It's also what I'd call buggy: the font menu it places in your Menu Bar does not reappear after my machine sleeps (OS 10.3.4, new PB), requiring launching the app to reinstall the menu. Also, while You claims the app supports TextEdit, it does not on my machine. Also, tech support doesn't seem to be particularly responsive. Because of the limited app support and inconsistent behavior, I'll give this app 2 stars. If You fixes it to work with apps like FileMaker Pro 7, AppleWorks, Deneba Canvas 8 or 9, and other apps, and fixes the bugs, it would be a 4 star app in my book.

For those who work with Flash MX and have many fonts this application is a savior. Flash MX (6) is incredibly slow at selecting fonts from the text pallete, being able to use YCF to select and change fonts is much quicker. This is on a Dual 2.0 G5 with 1.5GB of Ram and about 500 fonts.

It is more expensive than Unsanity's FontCard. Is awfully slow and has a very low quality font smoothing for the menu. On the good side, it does not need APE to work (though I think it should be a control panel).
