Adds Visual Font menu to OS X Apps
Albuquerque April 25, 2003 - Stone Design today shipped a new plugin named FontSight™that adds a visual font typeface menu to all Cocoa* Apps with a Font or Format menu.
Stone Design CEO Andrew Stone comments “If you loved the way Mac OS 9 could show you the actual typefaces of each font in your system, then you’ll find FontSight™ indispensable! And it comes with a single-click installer.”
FontSight™ Features include:
• adds visual font menu to native OS X Apps
• one-click install (and uninstall)
• selecting new font changes the selected text’s typeface
• view and print all fonts at any size
• set font size of the menu
• set “as one list” or “as families”
• set if it appears at top level or in Format menu
• shareware - only $19 with free upgrades for life!

FontSight™ is available online from the Stone Store for $19. A full-strength demo can be downloaded from Stone Design’s web site.
*Cocoa is Apple’s revolutionary, native OS X development system. All Stone apps are written in Cocoa, as are Apple’s TextEdit, iCal, iPhoto, Safari, Mail, etc. Carbon applications that have been ported to OS X without taking advantage of the native functionality of OS X do not show the FontSight™ menu.
