Elesar Ltd has just released an update to popular font management package Font Directory Pro. The package, which consists of a suite of applications to help manage large collections of fonts, was originally developed by LOOK Systems and is now being maintained by the same company that brought us the Titanium motherboard, amongst other things.

The update brings the version number up to 3.23, and is described by Elesar as a minor update over the previous version. However, it does add a very useful feature, as suggested by a user: Continue reading »

Can now be used by Number 6. I mean on RISC OS 6!

A new version of Font Directory Pro has been released by Elesar Ltd, bringing the software up to version 3.22.

Originally developed and sold by LOOKsystems and now being looked after by Elesar, Font Directory Pro is a popular font management package, and makes it much easier to deal with large collections of fonts than it would otherwise be using the standard font manager that comes as part of RISC OS. The package is actually a suite of applications, each with its own distinct job. Continue reading »

Following the release of a new version of Font Directory Pro in March, having taken over development of the product from LOOKsystems, Elesar Ltd has made available a maintenance update free of charge to those people using version 3.20 of the software.

Font Directory Pro is a boon for those RISC OS users with a hefty font collection, being designed to make managing those fonts – and therefore finding the right one amongst them – much, much easier. The software is actually a suite of six applications – Fonts, Viewer, Choices, Filer, Access, and Reset – that together allow you to: Continue reading »

In January, Elesar‘s Rob Sprowson paid a visit to the RISC OS User Group of London to talk about CloudFS, and another ‘mystery’ product, later revealed to be font management system Font Directory Pro, originally from LOOKsystems. At that point, a new version of the software was ready, and the only remaining task before it could be released was converting the large user manual. The last release from LOOKsystems was all the way back in 2003, and the new version (3.20) sees the software updated to work on newer ARM processors, and modern versions of RISC OS.

Coming with a hefty 108 page manual, the new version costs £22.50 including VAT (plus p&p) to upgrade from an earlier version (proof of an existing licence will be needed), and £45.00 including VAT (plus p&p) to those buying it for the first time.

But if you want more details, pop along to the ROUGOL meeting on Monday!

As well as talking about CloudFS, the mystery product that Elesar Ltd‘s Rob Sprowson is set to reveal at the next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London has been revealed as an updated version of Font Directory Pro, which was originally developed and sold by LOOKsystems. The software has been updated so that it can be used on the latest hardware, and on zero-page versions of RISC OS, and MW Software have provided an updated file scanner plug-in for Artworks files that contain text areas.

The only task remaining in order to be able to release the new version of Font Directory Pro is converting the large user manual, which is taking longer than expected – but in the meantime, the meeting on Monday, 16th January (full details in the previous announcement) is the place to be to see a demonstration of the software and pose any questions about it to Rob.

The question on everyone’s lips for countless years to come will be “Where were you on 28th October, 2017?”

Okay, they probably won’t be asking that – but I’m asking it now.

Well? Where were you?

I’ll tell you where I was: Feltham. More specifically, the St Giles Hotel – in the conference rooms on the first floor, where this year’s London Show was held. If you weren’t there, I’ll assume you’re reading this because you have an interest in RISC OS, and would like to know what you missed. In which case, read on… Continue reading »
