Adobe Type Manager 3.8

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe Type Manager 3.8 -- Although Adobe Type Manager 3.7 comes free with any QuickDraw GX product (including both System 7.5 and Peirce Print Tools), you can upgrade any version of ATM to version 3.8 for $29.95. Why upgrade? According to an Adobe sales representative, ATM 3.8 runs in native mode on Power Macintoshes, 35 percent faster on AV Macs, and generally has better compatibility with newer programs. ATM 3.8 also comes with thirty typefaces, including Tekton, a multiple master font (Tekton also comes with QuickDraw GX). Apple's Tech Info Library states that, "Primarily, only Power Macintosh customers should be interested in [upgrading from 3.7 to] the 3.8 version as it now has native code." [TJE]
