Mac OS X Lion (10.7) Compatibility

 

We are working hard to update all of our software products for Apple’s newly released version of Mac OS X (v. 10.7, called Lion)

Over the next few days we will announce the updates as they become available and will be offered as free updates to our existing customers.

All of our test show that there are no major issues with any of our existing products running on Lion. Most of the problems we’ve seen so far are related to then user interface (window refreshes, controls not drawing correctly, etc.)

If you have any questions or concerns about any of our products then please feel free to contact us here.

What Color Is Your Web Font?

Finding the right web font is a tricky business. Fonts are subjective. What seems bold and authoritative to one reader might appear stuffy and forbidding to another. If you’re trying to decide among several styles, why not do a survey? First, find a test group. Your test group should be comprised of your target audience.

It doesn’t matter if you’re writing a blog, launching a commercial website, or putting together an online portfolio. The most effective sites are created with a particular reader in mind. Write down a description of your ideal reader, including their age, music taste, fashion sense, and preferred beverage. The more detailed your characterization, the better. Then find 10 people that embody these qualities. They can be friends, colleagues, relatives – anyone who fits your ideal demographic is a great candidate for your survey.

Next, compile 5 examples of suitable web fonts. Print out the examples on a single page, then ask readers which they prefer and why. Keep in mind that the more provocative the questions you ask, the more evocative the answers you will get. For instance, you can ask, “If these fonts were people, which would you trust with an investment. What font would you want to take on a date? Which hobbies do you think this particular font would have?”

These questions may sound silly, but they invite readers to articulate their subconscious reactions to each font. Once you discover which typeface suits your desired demographic, you’ll be well on your way to designing a successful website!

FontDoctor owners get 50% discount

We often get questions about “crossgrade” discounts for our existing customers. A crossgrade is a discounted software purchase usually available only to current customers. It’s sort of a way to say “thank you” to loyal users.

If you already own FontDoctor (i.e. have a valid FontDoctor 7.x serial number) then you can order FontXChange (our Mac font converter) for only $49.99 for the Single User License. That’s half off the full price. Nice.

All you need is your current FontDoctor serial number and then just click here
