FontCard is a haxie that modifies the Font menu in Carbon and Cocoa applications.

It can add an icon that displays the format of a font next to the font menu item, display the font name in the font face, group fonts into submenus, and add font collections to the font menu.

Last but not least, it gives you the power of a professional font management utility for only US $17!

Here are some key features of "FontCard":
View the Font menu with each font displayed using its own typeface (WYSIWYG Font Menu);
Instantly view the format of the font (TrueType, OpenType, PostScript, etc);
View all the styles the font offers right in the menu;
Reveal the font in the Finder from the menu;
View font collections in the Font menu;
Mark and reveal duplicate fonts;
Easy to configure as it comes in usual Preference Pane form, accessible through System Preferences.

Expires in 15 days.

What's New:
ntCard is now a Universal (Fat) binary compatible with the Intel-based Macs (ICBMs).
Added a "Unmatched Fonts" submenu for fonts that are available in the Applications real font menu but for which FontCard cannot find a font that matches the menu item name.
Added an Updater that automatically checks for updates at user-specified intervals.
Fixed a problem with FontCard not recognizing font menus in Japanese localized applications.
Updated for the sets created in FontAgent Pro 3.2 and later.
Hopefully addressed an issue with some fonts not appearing in Adobe applications. This does not apply to fonts installed in Adobe specific font folders.
Fixed a problem with QuarkXPress 6.x and 7.x that caused FC to select the wrong font if the correct font was listed after the generic font family in the real font menu. This was especaily a problem for Helvetica Neue fonts under QuarkXPress 7.0.
