Working with Smart Sets

FontAgent® lets you create Smart Sets that are dynamic collections of fonts that match one or more rules that you specify.

If you create a Smart Set and later add fonts to FontAgent that match the set’s rules, FontAgent adds those fonts to the set automatically. 

Creating a Smart Set

To create a Smart Set, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click Smart Sets in the Sets Sidebar and select New Smart Set.
  2. FontAgent displays the Smart Set dialog. Enter a name for the new Smart Set.
  3. Enter your first rule by using the pull-down menus to select an attribute, operator and value.
  4. Click the + button to add additional rules.
  5. Click the x button that appears to the left of an existing rule to delete it.
  6. If you have more than one rule, select whether you want the fonts in the set to match any or all of your rules.
  7. Click Save and FontAgent will display your new Smart Set in the Sets Sidebar.

You can search any combination of the following fields in your Smart Search:

  • Font name

  • Font format type
  • Rating (1 to 5 stars)
  • Copyright
  • Trademark
  • Description (specified by font creator)
