    Has anyone tried these? I've been on the fence about moving from FontExplorer Pro to RightFont or Typeface. I'm not worried about getting value for $ (both are way cheaper than Linotype and Extensis). Typeface doesn't mention having font auto-activation, which I'm curious if that just goes without saying. If anyone has tried either of theses, would love to know how it worked for them.

      From the App Store: "Note that this version of Typeface strives to be the most beautiful font preview app for Mac :) While it provides light management features and tight integration with Font Book, there is no complicated database, font-cache cleanup or font activation. This means Typeface stays lightweight and can focus on doing what it does best: previewing & comparing fonts."

      so it looks like you can just see your fonts. i almost bought it. i have been using Rightfont on my personal laptop for a few weeks now and I'm happy with it.

        Thanks! That's what I was worried about. If I have to manually activate/deactivate fonts all the time it takes away a big part of why I need a font manager. System just gets cluttered with tons of activated fonts. The app looks beautiful though, I hope they beef up the features eventually, might give it a second look.
