Am using version 1.1 right now It is the right tool for the job of managing large amounts of fonts in a multi-user environment. Stable. Several interface tweaks would make it perfect. I love, love, love being able to create new sets that everyone accesses. FApro server seems to have a little bit of trouble with editing existing fonts. Like discovering a bad font and removing it or replacing it with a good one of the same name. In short, the synchronize (auto and manual) seems to only be good for adding fonts that had not existed in the library before. The library on the client's computer seems to need purging before recognizing that an existing font has been changed or deleted. But I think all of this may be related to OS X's problems with font caches. Also I would like a way of puching new libraries to users, instead of relying on them to activate them. But on the whole, it is a must have for any graphic design shop.

Version 2.5 is a good step up. Being able to control font licenses is a great feature ... although there is a problem with selecting one font at a time to assign licenses. They also fixed a lot of bugs from v1.1. No more phantom user log outs (that was a dangerous bug). But they still have not gotten the synchronize scheduler to work correctly. Another huge innovation is Directory Access. Being able to integrate with OSX server access groups is very powerful.

I may have written too quickly before. After the install of the FApro server, we seemed to have less problems for awhile. Then, all the old problems began to occur again. Fonts not activating, Fonts activating but not being available in Adobe CS2 inDesign. It is almost completly unworkable. i wonder who else is having these problems. What a disastrous piece of software. I wish I could edit my previous review ... or at least delete it.

I should have followed up to this post again. FA pro got significantly better with version 1.3. And it turned out that Adobe apps were the real culprits in the scenario I outlined. It seems that Adobe CS2 apps had a built in "font activator" that interfered with FApro, which they finally disabled in an update. And the Adobe apps also had font caches that become corrupted and have to be purged on a regular basis. I would reccomend FApro now (after about 6 months of pain). I use suitcase at home and have no problems whatsoever ... however, that is a single computer. Our computers at work are on a network and are imaged machines .... and I believe that permissions problems have exacerbated the Adobe font cache issue.

interesting. i wonder if there's a comparison of fapro server, suitcase server and fontreserve server (fusion server will combine the last two but isn't out yet). looking for granular control at the workgroup admin level...and for the server to warn if the 26th person tries to load that 25 user font. don don montalvo, nyc

The newest version of FApro server 2.0 is head and shoulders above the last. It keeps track of user licenses for fonts. Synchronization works much more smoothly now. No more log in woes. But the big news for us is that we are having a no more font caching problems. Now I do not know if it is because of FApro server 2.0, or if the latest sys OSX updates made a difference ... but it is so much better than it was. I do slightly resent the feeling that we were beta testing the first version of this software ... and there are still things i would like to see fixed/added ... but it definitely has improved a significant amount and is very worth the upgrade.

Have you ever tried Suitcase Server? I've found it to be super reliable, and have it installed at numerous clients. No real issues at all.
