Bohemiancoding has announced that they have decided to discontinue Fontcase, and will be releasing a new font-related app instead.

Personally I feel regretful for the abandonment, but hope their next app will be as much useful as this one once was for me.
[Version 2.1.8]

Downloaded the demo 3 days ago, and so far so good.

But for one thing: I'm using it on a Japanese system, and the app is, yes, localized to it, but the translation is terrible.
IMHO, developers shouldn't localize their apps into languages they don't understand unless they have a reliable translator. Machine translation is sometimes worse than nothing, since it can render the app completely incomprehensible.

I used to use Caffeine then NoSleep (the one by Pavel Prokofiev) but recently switched to InsomniaX.

Caffeine doesn't support clam-shell mode. NoSleep does, and that's the only thing it does. InsomniaX is more full-featured and well-designed. I preferred InsomniaX's customizablity to NoSleep's simplicity.

A couple of improvement suggestion though:

When I select "Disable Lid Sleep" in the menu, the menu text changes to "Enable Lid Sleep". I find this a bit unintuitive, maybe because I'm not a native English speaker. I'd prefer if it turned to "✓ Disable Lid Sleep" (same text with check mark).

I installed InsomniaX on my iMac, and found that the menu still shows "Disable Lid Sleep" item, which is obviously unnecessary. If the software could detect on what machine it is installed and automatically disables (or hides) the unused feature, that would be nice.

There's a "CPU Safety" mode in the preferences menu. I looked around the readme and the developer's website but I couldn't find any description about what this setting actually means. Feel like better "safe" than not, but then why is this optional?

Anyway thank you very much for sharing such a great app!

I found that they've started to provide the pre-release beta of fontcase on their website:

The Download Demo link here seems outdated.
You can still visit dev's site and download it.

This page seems to have been mistakenly updated.

The latest version of Fontcase is 2.1.1, not 2.1.2.

The What's New section has the same text as that of Sketch 2.0.2.

Sorry, the latest version *is* actually 2.1.2, though it's not yet released on Apple's App Store.

It's only the What's New section which is wrong.

This app convinced me to learn Markdown.

An option to show the HTML source instead of (or in addition to) the rendered preview would be nice for a Markdown beginner like me!

Tried it for a couple of days. Very thoughtfully designed and the look and feel is nice.

Some problems:

I cannot set the hotkeys in the preference. I've tried every thinkable combination of keys, but it only shows an empty "alert" window, and the keys are not saved.

While entering a Japanese text in Remember, it listens too aggressively to the "Enter key down" event. The Enter (return) key is used by the Japanese input frontend to accept a conversion of the typed phonetic characters to the proper display characters. So pressing Enter key should only insert the composed phrase into the text field and allow further composition while the user is typing in Japanese.
I hope you can update Remember so that Enter key presses are accepted (either to finish naming the task or to create a new task) only when a Japanese phrase is not currently being composed, as otherwise it is rather frustrating.
I'm not a programmer so maybe I'm being off the point, but it seems like you should not be listening to the key down event but to the actual carriage-return characters to be inserted into the text field.

Cheers,

Mac OS 10.7.3

Hi,
The app looks nice and I have a couple of questions on how it works before purchasing:

1. How is the list sorted? Can I change the order manually?

2. Can I change the window size manually, or is it automatically resized fitting to its content, or is it just fixed?

Thanks.
[Version 1.1.2]
