Hi PJ,

I'm one of those users who had problems with FontManager X3: I had to keep going to Windows Task Manager to end the current FontManager.exe process before I could continue to work in PagePlus. I haven't had any such problems since I reverted to FontManager 2, but I don't know if FM2 is still available from Serif.

Serif FontManager is based on FontExpert by Proxima Software, and its interface is very similar. You can see some FontExpert screenshots here.

Alfred

I don't use, or have, Serif's FontManager, because I've had this free font program for quite a while.

Hi again PJ,

It is my understanding that FontManager is a special version of FontExpert, created for integration with Serif products.
