FontAgent Pro developer Insider Software has announced Smasher 1.5, its multipurpose font utility that offers automated maintenance of a user's font collections.

The software is capable of taking corrective action in order to ensure that applications avoid common problems and print documents properly. Smasher automatically addresses problems commonly seen in leading creative applications including Adobe Creative Suite, QuarkXPress, Microsoft Office and Mac OS X.

Users can view all the fonts in any font suitcase, including legacy Mac OS 9 suitcases that may contain numerous fonts from a multitude of families and foundries. In an easy-to-apply action, the software can also split font suitcases down to the single style level — such as Myriad Pro Bold Italic — and create style-level suitcases ready for use in Mac OS X.

Smasher retails for $49.95 and is available now.
