This is the worst font program ever!! Constantly having problem activating and installing since I got this software (2 yrs ago). Now, I had updated my mac to Tiger, the program doesn't even work at all!! It messed up all my other programs. I'd just tried a clean install. Now, the damn program doesn't even let me add fonts at all!!

Extensis tech support is also the worst. They are useless. All they can say is "it doesn't support Tiger" and "I don't know".

Here is my solution: trash it and use Font Book (not great, but at least its work!)

FontReserve was a wonderful app when Brian was running the show. Now I am pissed off.
I can't get the Panther update to work because the serial number will not resigister and now I am on line (still) for tech support for 45 minutes at Extensis. Now the website will not tell my WHY fifteen efforst will not get the serial number right.

Extensis was worse than Quart at Tech -non support , (no that is not possible)
I use Adobe products and FR over Quark and Suitcase because they respect user.

Now that Extensis owns FR I expect to always be disappointed and angry.

Stupid extensis made me "register" to get a friggin link to the demo: http://www.extensis.com/PERL/dlr.cgi/FRUM312_OSXInstall__0973945601.hqx. Use that and save yourself some spam.

They have posted (or at least announced version 3.1.2) this has fixed some outstanding problems with the previous versions. However, when trying to download the "new" version, it will not let you. Follow the directions below if you want to get the updater:

Call Font Reserve's main number : +1 415 381 3303
Then just hit # 0 (zero ) then politely ask the person who answers that you need the updater to fix problems, and the link is incorrect. She will give you a address and login / pass to get it. I would spill it here, but when asked if I could spread the word, the person asked to juat have people call there. So I will respect that...call away.

Yeah, make a toll call on my dime for software that I bought to get an update that I should be able to get online. Extensis service operates about as reliable as their products, which is why I switched to Font Reserve in the first place - now they own it and I will be on my way to find a new font management utility.

Everyone knows about font problems from organizing files and folders, searching for font files, and wondering if you have the correct version to troubleshooting system crashes caused by corrupt fonts and handling font conflicts. Font Reserve is the unique font management software designed to forever change the way you work with fonts. Font Reserve makes your fonts make sense. Font Reserve is the unrivaled font management software designed around an innovative and proprietary database architecture. The software was developed to solve most of the font management and usability problems that have frustrated graphic designers and production people. Font Reserve was developed to do more than just activate fonts. It has been designed to resolve day-to-day problems related to font management to be able to distinguish one version of Helvetica, or any other font, from another.

Font Reserve is the only font manager that can organize you physical font files. Unlike other font managers, Font Reserve gives you the option to move fonts to a single location, eliminating the confusion of storing fonts in multiple folders. Font Reserve provides the features and capabilities you have always wanted, ensuring that you have total control of your most important and expensive assets, your fonts. In addition, the software includes features that will guarantee that the right font will be in the right place at the right time so jobs can flow automatically. This will make certain that the nightmare of finding out that a machine has been stuck for hours looking for a font or that you've printed 20 pages of film with font substitution are things of the past!
