Collecting fonts is great when you’re browsing your library and want to mark candidates for your design. But when managing and categorizing your fonts it’s often easier to just select things.
That’s why Typeface now offers the best of both worlds with a new Selection Mode. When enabled you can select fonts, just like you would in any other app. Double click a font to view details. You can use the arrow keys to scroll through your library and use handy new shortcuts to go in and out of detail view.
The Collect corner is still there and allows you to collect fonts like you’re used to. It puts fonts in the temporary Quick Collection, so you can easily review your marked candidates.
Both selection and Quick Collection work hand in hand to make Typeface more intuitive to browse.
Selection Mode is the default for new installs, but the app keeps the current setting for existing users. You can enable the new Selection Mode in the grid toolbar button or in the app Settings.
