Description from the packaging.

The power to share Laser fonts across a network.

Efficient Network Share Fonts.

Now, with FontShare font-server software, all Macs on a network can share download-able Laser fonts residing in any network file server.

Imagine the disk space, not to mention the money, you'll save by not needing a dedicated hard disk for each workstation or printer.

With FontShare, all you need are the screen fonts of the typefaces you want to use, their PostScript files can reside in any network file server.

FontShare makes more efficient use of the network's storage and backup functions because now you only have to store and backup the PostScript fonts in one place.

And, if you use a Linotronic Imagesetter, FontShare is the perfect solution to unwanted printouts due to bitmap equivalents being used when PostScript files couldn't be found.

FontShare also works with the ATM utility from Adobe. Do not crowd your system folder with tons of fonts slowing down your system. With FontShare, you can allow ATM to find the fonts anywhere on the network.

And, unlike other network applications, FontShare is sold with a full network license for up to 32 Macs.
