MasterJuggler is the most powerful, easiest to use professional font manager for Mac OS X.

Your computer has proven to be an exceptional tool for expressing ideas. Designing with type inherently brings about the desire for more fonts. More fonts means a wider range of choices with which to express your ideas. So you collect more fonts - screen fonts, printer fonts, outline fonts, PostScript fonts, OpenType fonts and TrueType fonts. Before you know it, your fonts are completely unmanageable. MasterJuggler lets you take control of your fonts!

This free updater application will update your current MasterJuggler application to version 3.0.4. It works on previous versions from 3.0 to 3.0.3.

This updater is easy to use and will guide you through the process. The MasterJuggler Updater will update the MasterJuggler application. When you run the updated MasterJuggler application for the first time it may update other previously installed components of MasterJuggler.
