Font Management comes to Canto Cumulus
TypeTrax bridges Cumulus and FontAgent Pro for total font control.
BERLIN, 20 JAN 2009 — Canto partner Moksa, Inc. has announced Typetrax, software that links Canto Cumulus with Insider Software’s FontAgent Pro for users of Adobe’s InDesign and Illustrator. Typetrax enables Cumulus-based creative groups to see and manage the fonts used in their InDesign and Illustrator documents, right from within Cumulus.
“TypeTrax offers Cumulus users powerful font management for the applications creative groups use most,” says Canto Marketing Director, Steffen Setzer. “In addition, Moksa has demonstrated how powerfully Cumulus can be extended through partner products.”
When documents are cataloged into Cumulus, TypeTrax detects the fonts used, creates catalog records for each, and links those records to the layout or document, ensuring the important font information needed for production is always available.
Visual font representations enable users to see the fonts a document uses, and also see which documents use a given font. “We looked long and hard to make sure there wasn’t already a solution like Type-Trax on the market, and we found none” explains Moksa President Vincent A. DiPaola. “This was an important workflow problem we knew we could solve by bridging FontAgent Pro and Canto Cumulus.”
When used in conjunction with the asset cross referencing built into Cumulus, even users who don’t use the Adobe Creative Suite can now “pre-flight” documents by seeing all fonts, illustrations, images and other linked documents they include. Features built into TypeTrax increase the reliability and ease of pre-flighting further.
TypeTrax will ship on January 21, 2009, for $99 per workstation license. More information is available at http://www.typetrax.com. To learn more about other Canto partner products developed specifically for Cumulus, visit the Canto Partner Marketplace on the Canto website.
