Review

Corrupted or damage fonts may lead to a wide range of errors even in a sturdy operating system like Mac. With so many fonts installed, acknowledging the problem will not effectively solve it and for all such issues and more, FontDoctor is just the tool for the job. The application is designed to diagnose, repair and organize fonts in order to make for a smoother operating system, free of any font errors.

FontDoctor's interface is divided comprehensively in tabs among its functions: diagnose, organize, clean, move and compare fonts.

Users may diagnose the system font folders or one directory of their choice. The application will check for its file structure, ID conflicts, duplicate fonts, missing PostScript and Bitmap fonts and place them in appropriate folders on the desktop.

Organizing is done either by using the font family names or font names and can lead to the deletion of the original files after copy. Fonts will be sorted alphabetically by family name.

Additional tools provide the means to clean the cache files that can become corrupt, move fonts altogether from one location to another and compare between two different fonts.

Reports can be viewed in the form of interactive charts or saved locally as text files.

In conclusion, FontDoctor runs fast and it is quite effective, making it suitable for all Mac users.
