Font tools

Let's say you are writing a letter, working on a flyer or something that you want to print.

You want to choose the perfect font.

If there will be only a few options like Arial, Helvetica, Verdana and Times New Roman or just two Serif and Sans Serif, it will be easy. But as there are many more, you need a tool that will help you.

And if you work with fonts regularly, you have found that the system font management tool is not perfect.

Below is a list of tools that can help you with installing, uninstalling and renaming fonts or tools where you can compare fonts and find the perfect pair.

Best Font Managers and Tools:

akFontViewer 3.2.0
32-bit utility that lets you view samples of all your installed fonts in Windows. It can show a list of fonts with each font rendered in its own typeface. Also a window much like a Character Map -- which is always active -- shows you which fonts have full character sets and which don't. Other features enable you to define a sample text string, and to check off attributes you'd like to display -- such as bold, italic, underline, and strikeout. Print function is also supported. review
