Two computers using the same font via server

Post by henrikp » Fri Nov 12, 2010 1:11 pm

Not sure if this is the right section..
I am wondering if it's possible to use two macs that gets the fonts from one folder located on a server (mac mini), automatically. So that both computers use the same fonts at all times.
Does anyone know if there's any software that can accomplish this?

Thanks for the help

I suppose you could, but why would you want to? The font files are so small that you may as well copy the font file off the server and put it on your personal computer. Not only is this easier for you, but it prevents lag for multiple people who want to utilize that file. No matter how large or small, several people utilizing that file at once will, more than likely, create problems. Hope this was helpful!

Well, i'm working at a advertising agency and we are two computers that need to use the same fonts. And the thing is that it's not really smooth to have to e-mail new fonts to eachother. And installing the correct fonts on a mac is a pain in the ass!

Thanks for the reply!
