TypeTrax for Adobe InDesign

by Fred Showker

TypeTrax is a new product for managing design projects created using Adobe Creative Suite. Developed jointly by Insider Software and Moksa, Inc., TypeTrax manages projects, and tracks, organizes and pre-flights project files, including fonts and digital assets.

TypeTrax adds the missing link to digital design projects. Fully integrated with Canto Cumulus, a leader in digital asset management, TypeTrax allows a user to simply drag a document into Canto Cumulus and TypeTrax automatically detects and displays the project's font resources in WYSIWYG mode.


TypeTrax also provides full access to font metadata with just a few clicks. In addition, native fonts and associated font data can be viewed from within Cumulus. When a user checks out an InDesign document, Cumulus and TypeTrax automatically preflight it to ensure inclusion of the fonts, images and all associated resources files that are needed to properly output the job.

System Requirements:
      TypeTrax requires Mac OS X version 10.4 or later running on an Intel Mac or Power Mac. It supports all Mac OS X fonts, including Open Type, Type 1, dfont, and Mac and Windows TrueType. Canto Cumulus version 7.0 or later and FontAgent Pro version 4.0 or later are also required.

Pricing and Availability:
      The retail price for TypeTrax is $99.95 (USD) per workstation. TypeTrax will be available directly from Insider Software, Moksa, Inc. and resellers worldwide, including SHI, PC Connection, PC Mall and Zones.
