SUPPORT: FontExpert 2006 version 8.0 includes Missing Fonts Loader plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS2.

Your program lacks, as all windows font management programs lack, the capacity to auto-activate fonts and font sets. Font Agent Pro, Suitcase and a hundred others on the Mac side offer this feature and it is surprising to me that no Windows programs do.

Do you mean activation of fonts used in some document being opened (for example, an Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop document)?

I have read your reply in another thread (auto-activation).
Thank you for explanation. We know about this feature and it is included in our development plans for the next version. (Auto-activation in Windows is usually implemented as plug-in to third party products, such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.)

I just downloaded Font Expert 2005 and I am VERY impressed. I am using Extensis Suitcase 9.2.2 and it is a very slow and flaky program. I don't need to get into all the ills I have experienced, but suffice it to say that they don't give a rip about their Windows users.

As another graphic designer, I second the request for auto-activation for Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign.
