Sharing Fonts with FontAgent

The Sync, CloudServer and Connected editions of FontAgent allow you to share fonts with other users in your workgroup. The Sync and CloudServer editions perform this sharing through the FontAgent CloudServer service, which is hosted in Insider's Internet-based data centers. The Connected Edition shares fonts by connecting to a FontAgent Server hosted by your organization on its internal network or in a hosting center selected by your IT organization.
