|[8:30 AM] Power On Expands Mac Utility Empire With ACTION WYSIWYG
Power On Software has released Action WYSIWYG. Action WYSIWYG is a font management application allowing users easy access to fonts from most any program. Unlike some font management applications, Action WYSIWYG displays all fonts in a multi-column format, eliminating the need to scroll through a long font list to reach a desired font. According to Power On:
ACTION WYSIWYG can display more fonts on screen simultaneously than any other product available, making it an indispensable utility for graphics professionals or anyone who uses more than a few fonts. It is ideally suited for users who need to instantly see what their documents will look like as they select different fonts. ACTION WYSIWYG offers the following features and benefits:
- View all available fonts in their actual typeface, thereby eliminating any guesswork as to how a finished document will look. Compatible with all major programs, including Adobe products , Quark Xpress, and Microsoft Office.
- Multiple column view of all available fonts - Instead of having to scroll hundreds of fonts, which can be annoyingly slow, ACTION WYSIWYG shows all available fonts instantly in a unique multi-column display that expedites the process of selecting the correct font for the job.
- Display only the fonts you need for the job by assigning fonts to specific programs, thereby eliminating those fonts that you don't need for a particular application.
- Group fonts by family - ACTION WYSIWYG automatically collects and groups fonts into submenus by family.
- Customizable font menus - Users can reorder their font menus and assign a size and color for displaying each font, thereby making font selection even easier. Rearranging is as simple as pointing and clicking.
- On the fly display activation - Just hold down a modifier key to see the names of the fonts without viewing them in WYSIWYG mode. This is ideal for all symbol fonts such as dingbats and bar codes.
An electronic version of ACTION WYSIWYG is priced at US$29.95 and is available now from Power On's web site. In addition, the retail-packaged software is available at dealers and mail order resellers worldwide, with an estimated street price of US$39.95. Owners of ACTION Files and ACTION GoMac, two of the award winning products in the ACTION Utilities suite, are also eligible for special pricing. You can find more information at the company's web site.
