It offers Graphics professionals working on such projects as print advertisements, brochures, magazines or books easy font management from the beginning of the project to output. It is particularly useful for designers who require a mixture of different fonts for each individual project. ATM Deluxe streamlines font management leading to greater productivity.

Sheri Heriford, computer graphics specialist with Hallmark Cards, Inc., which has one of the largest in-house design departments in the world, said, "With such a large design and production community, we have to employ the most efficient digital workflow solutions possible to ensure accuracy and enhance productivity. When it comes to managing type, we rely on ATM Deluxe for just that. It allows us to focus less on resource management and more on creating compelling products for our consumers."

ATM Deluxe 4.5 allows users to create custom font sets, activate and deactivate sets and fonts to save system overhead and reduce the length of font menus, view and print font samples, and diagnose font files for time-wasting display and output problems.

The Copy Font/Set feature saves time by allowing users to quickly and easily collect fonts for output. In addition, the new Manage Duplicate Fonts feature helps eliminate printing problems by letting users scan their Known Font list for duplicates and format conflicts.

ATM Deluxe 4.5 comes bundled with Adobe Type Reunion Deluxe 2.5. ATR Deluxe shortens font menu length, groups typeface families into submenus, and shows fonts in their true face, which simplifies font selection for the user.
