Font Viewer

WHAT IS FONT VIEWER?

Font Viewer is a simple program to view TrueType and OpenType fonts on your computer. This program was made for people who design things and would like to see what a particular piece of text would look like in many font styles. By opening or pasting a photo into the program, you can use Font Viewer to easily look for a font that matches your image without having to have two separate programs open and switching back and forth. It is very easy to use.

VERSION HISTORY

NOTE: Because of Font Viewer's complete rewriting... some RTF functions have been stripped away in this new version. For us to have gotten the RTF and resizable images working properly we would pretty much be rebuilding a word processor... which is not what we want. If you want those features in an RTF type program, then just use MS Word; it has all the functions I was trying to implement. Hope you like the simpler version of Font Viewer!
