Those syncing features look great, but I wish I could install this on both my Macs with a Single License. As handy as syncing would be, I'm unlikely to pay $69.95 for it.
I was just about to hit the buy button before I read your comment (I should have looked at the entire site first). Kind of a deal breaker for me too. Am I being stingy?
They should offer a demo.
To my memory, font apps have a bad reputation. Remember the Bohemian Coding font app from years ago? It had a couple incarnations and they barely ever worked and crashed like hell.
I'd also buy 2 licenses, but without a demo this is just too risky.
I emailed them and just got a reply. They say they're swamped and unable to respond here right now, but they do have a 7-day trial version. I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but here's the link: http://rightfontapp.com/downloads/2.0.1/rightfont.zip
This is what stopped me from clicking on Buy button. I haven't tried but couldn't you just add the same license on both computer? I usually buy the app and was able to install it on both my home and work computer. I hoped this is the same case
I went ahead and bought it (stupidly, a day before their Black Friday sale). It's a great app, but no, it won't allow you to use the same serial number on more than one computer. Makes the Live Fonts sync ability redundant unless you buy RightFont licenses for your other computers.
Great, I am trying this out as a replacement for FontExplorer X Pro.
I would love to hear your findings. I'm currently looking for a font manager & these 2 products are at the forefront.
In my experience FontExplorer is bloated software with a plethora of barely used features. In the end it basically becomes a slightly more organisable FontBook where I get to turn some fonts on an off. Haven’t tried RightFont yet but it looks like it has some really good features that will bring glyph selection to Keynote and Sketch.
It's pretty easy to use, and i can change the font for text layers in PS & Sketch, it's cool. And i usually use FontAwesome icons in my Sketch file, but i have to copy the character code, but with RightFont i can drag any icon to my file, very simple. i just tried Dropbox sync feature, and it works well on my MBP Retina & iMac 5K.
FYI - it appears they have stopped development on this app. They haven't released an update in the past 7 months.
So far, I love RightFont 2. It's almost everything that I've ever wanted in a font manager. Hoping that development continues and they don't go defunct like the Bohemian one did.
This said, I hit a little bit of a hiccup in my workflow with RF2. 1. There seems to be no way to view a glyph list or alphabet view (like in the native font app), which can be useful when browsing through and comparing fonts. Normally this wouldn't be too big of an issue as I'm okay opening up Font Book.app when I do need this feature, but any fonts installed via RF2 won't show up in Font Book.
- I can't see any way to view font metadata in the app
Has anyone had this experience? If so any solutions?
Been using v1 for the past month. Amazed at how integral it has become to my day day workflow. Looking forward to seeing how this syncs with my existing Dropbox repo using v2.
Edit: Found the Email Contact Link. Thanks.
I see 1 big UX mistake, but that has nothing to do with the app itself.
I bought the app. Just did a fresh system install on my MacBook Pro. I wondered about where i can download the App the site? I couldn't find a download link. Eventually I copied the app file from a timemachine backup.
The bigger issue is. I cant't use my SN. It won't accept it. I went back to the website and searched for a support and contact. Could not find anything.
What can I do to use my SN again?
Thanks for the awesome App. :)
