This app is what OSX has needed for a while... who wants to to go to finder, make a new window, and open font book when you can just use your own keyboard/mouse shortcut to see it all right on your dashboard! It is also faster than font book. Kudos to the developer.

The previous poster (er, that would be myself) is right (;-), but has just forgotten a small fix: when TypeCast is in Info mode, perhaps the font-size popup ought to be disabled.

Very nice widget with a smooth UI.

There is, however, a problem with it: one immediately wants to ask it to also be able to display inactive fonts. And, heck, while we're at it, why not activate them at the same time, heh?

In other words, what we need is a complete replacement for all the inadequate Font managers out there. C'mon, guys, it's time someone good sent Suitcase (& others) back to the grave. (Almost) everybody's sick of them.
