Anyone has good experience with the Mac FEX 7.2.6 Discovery Engine? I only have the System and All Users fonts (685) and was told that it will take 11 min or so to initialize. Watching the FEXFontDiscoveryHelper app in Activity Monitor for the last 30 min. No CPU activity but the Starting Discovery Engines features... progress bar is filled to the right. When I stopped it and restarted again, it gave that 11 min estime again. No reassurance that it is working at all.

So tired of downloading what I think is a new update only to find out it's the exact same version I've had since January. Version 7.2.6 is not a new update.

This app is a complete rip off they now want a yearly subscription it seems. I will find an alternative. Disgusted!

I wish FontExplorer would have the decency to communicate humanly with their paying customers. I frequently encounter their server is down when about to purchase, despite repeated attempts. They should also show some loyalty to those who have purchased an earlier version. But like Adobe, they don't seem to value or even acknowledge their customers. I am hugely disappointed with them.

I remember sadly to the times when there were several good alternatives on the mac. Their support tries hard to keep it going, but the program is bloated, unreliable and more hurdle than help.

This app makes me sad. It used to be so good long ago. And they had a free "lite" version. It was my ATM Deluxe replacement for years (although still not as good). Now, it is slow and expensive. I would pay $100 is someone would come out with software that does everything that ATM Deluxe did the same way it did it.

I don't know what you think about it, but I experience the support of FEX as non-existent. I have had problems with it since the introduction of the "Discovery Engine" and have to end the process manually each time via the activity display. In the application you cannot stop the process. So this "feature" has a user experience error and I have written about it a few times and didn't get an answer. Pretty sad, as a paying user I find this an extremely poor performance.

FEX is good, however it's 2020, and Linotype somehow thinks it's reasonable that I should manually mirror my library on my laptop whenever I made a change on my desktop - or vice versa. Oh right, they want to sell me their 1,500€ server software. Meanwhile, Suitcase Fusion supports cloud sync + backup, and the app costs even less than the FEX client.

Excellent for categorizing and organizing fonts, but terrible at automatically activating them when needed. FontExplorer provides plugins to help applications load and unload fonts on demand, but they rarely work properly. Instead, you may find yourself repeatedly initiating that process manually.
