Adobe Announces Mac ATM Deluxe 4.5
Adobe has announced the Mac version of ATM Deluxe 4.5 along with Type Reunion Deluxe 2.5. The new version includes new features aimed at publishing professionals. According to Adobe:

A complete font management utility, ATM Deluxe 4.5 allows users to create custom font sets, activate and deactivate sets and fonts to save system overhead and reduce the length of font menus, view and print font samples, and diagnose font files for time-wasting display and output problems. It includes new features such as temporary and permanent font sets to ease the production of one-off and recurring documents. The Copy Font/Set feature saves time by allowing users to quickly and easily collect fonts for output. In addition, the new Manage Duplicate Fonts feature helps eliminate printing problems by letting users scan their Known Font list for duplicates and format conflicts.

ATM Deluxe 4.5 comes bundled with Adobe Type Reunion(R) (ATR) Deluxe 2.5. ATR Deluxe shortens font menu length, groups typeface families into submenus, and shows fonts in their true face, all of which simplifies font selection for the user.

The complete ATM Deluxe 4.5 package includes the ATM Deluxe 4.5 font management software, a new set of 15 display fonts, ATR Deluxe 2.5, Adobe Acrobat(R) Reader 4.0 and Adobe PostScript(R) 8.5.1.

Adobe is offering upgrade pricing for owners of registered versions at US$49.95. The full version is priced a$69.95. The product is expecged to ship in May.

ATM Deluxe 4.5 can be downloaded from Adobe's web site.

The Mac Observer Spin: Perhaps Adobe is sensitive to Mac users wanting to feel important, or perhaps they have decided that the Windows market is not all that interested in font management software. In either case it is nice to see the Mac version of ATM Deluxe 4.5 hit the market first. This upgrade has been long awaited by the Mac market.
