I thought font software was supposed to be helpful...

2019-04-11

UTS has a feature where it will auto-activate the fonts used in the document, as long as those fonts are available on the Type Server for the user to access.

Pros

The ability to search is nice as well.

Cons

Auto-activation is frustratingly inconsistent. Font sync between computers can also be tricky.

Managing Fonts and Allowing users to get work done at a great overall value.

2017-12-12

The biggest benefit is company wide management of our fonts to make sure that we have the correct licensing levels.

Pros

From the user side they really don't have to do much in order for the software to work.

Cons

The only con I can see comes from having to make sure that your version of Universal Type is up to speed with the version of the applications, Adobe CC, that you use.

This product works well

2017-12-18

Pros

I personally like the security of this product where employees cannot download or add fonts, this allows us to be in compliance.

Cons

It seems to crash sometimes on PC's, it works very well on all our MAC's but we seem to have issues on the few PC's we have it installed on/

Great way to keep fonts in sync in the office

2018-12-24

Sharable across multiple machines so everyone in the office can have the same fonts on all software platforms. Really easy to sync with Adobe software.

Takes a little time to make sure there are no issues before upgrading.

Helpful but glitchy

2021-07-27

Really great tool to consolidate all your fonts that your company licenses.

Pros

Also love the feature that you can group fonts into personal folders!

Cons

UTC does seem glitchy as times. I've had to restart numerous times since the program wasn't responding. Not sure if it's a "me" issue, but my coworkers have had similar problems.

This is a great addition to our environment. it allows us to control bad font that users download.

2017-12-12

Pros

The ease of use when adding to the library and the ability to share with our other departments. The administration console is simple to use.

Cons

The limit in the fonts that can be used when purchased from an online source. usually the user purchase 5 and for it to work, I need to upload it on to the server

Simple, no-hassle, server-based font management.

2017-12-12

Universal Type is a huge help for managing fonts for multiple workstations and multiple workgroups, both Mac and PC. I don't have to visit everyone's computer just to add or remove fonts, I can do this easily from my copy of the Universal Type Client.

Pros

Also, software upgrades/updates are extremely easy, just run the installer and after a minute or so you have a newer version installed and running.

Cons

I suppose it would be that it has the occasional bug requiring a workaround or an update to fix, but their support team always does a good job helping out with that.
