View Full Version : Font Server or other applications that help licensing compliance

Has anyone discovered a way to manage fonts, or rather manage the licensing of fonts, so that the individuals who use the fonts are aware of the licensing restrictions of a particualr font as they use it.

For instance, a way to prevent collect for ouput, when the font requires PDF embedded only. Or a font that forbids internet use. Or editing of that font into a logo. Or making a font based on another font. Etc...

Right now it seems most font apps allow for the number of users to be automatically controlled. But not all the other font restrictions, that vary from font to font.

Also, is there a way to control the use of fonts off the server, such as local use of fonts brought in UTR. I was thinking perhaps Apple Remote Desktop could do a compare to check for variations, but that does not help with the PCs.
