Paragon comes out with periodic upgrades from 9.5 to 10 to 11 in a very short period of time, however before I got my complimentary upgrade from 9.5 to 10, I never ran into any issues using 9.5, again the same thing from 10 to 11. What is so special about Mavricks that they need to offer a paid upgrade? Version 10 works just fine. There really is no reason to upgrade if you already are a previous customer. They should really offer complimentary upgrades as nothing really changes between major version changes.

The software is great and it streamlines NTFS integration.
Once you install it, you never think about it.

Paid version upgrades multiple times a year even when its unnecessary. Old versions work just fine.

Fontexplorer X Pro has always been an asset, saving application load times and organization of fonts, however they seem to just have long standing bugs with updates being few and far apart.

The current issue which is causing an annoyance is the Missing Font issue with certain CS5 products. The prompt comes up twice for each document stating you have a series of missing fonts. If opening 5 documents simulateneously, that's 10 prompts! They simply tell you to hit "Done" twice and ignore the issue. If you view their release notes much of the resolution for similar problems has been to simply ignore it. If it is so easy to ignore it, why not actually fix the problem!

When Illustrator CS5 requests a font which has linked pdfs/documens it makes font requests like "AYNBAA+FuturaStd." Six random characters followed by a plus then the Font name it is requesting. Why doesn't FontExplorer simply request and activate the font after the plus symbol?

Here is the actual release note that has plagued Font Explorer since 3.1:

Adobe Illustrator CS3, CS4 & CS5: If an Adobe Illustrator document contains a placed PDF or illustrator document with embedded fonts, an incorrect font request will occur with the status missing. Activate any fonts that the document may require and ignore the incorrect requests by clicking on the Done button.

I truly hoped they would have fixed this in a minor update such as 3.1.1.
