  • Best font viewer?

    What are some good font viewers for windows 8/10 that allows you to see a sample text in many different fonts at the same time, to help narrow down the font choice quickly?
    It would be even better if it allows different categories of fonts to be turned on/off (e.g. script fonts, serifs, all-caps, ...), and works with CJK fonts.

      That looks like a great project. Do you know if they have plans to support other operating systems?

      I don't actually know. I only rarely use it as I wind up searching through typekit for the most part.

          You can use Illustrator to see how your Font will appear in particular Font Style. And also you can check in Control Panel<Appearance & Personalization<Fonts. Click on any Font from the list you are able to see, you will get an example of how your content will appear after applying that particular style.

          Note:- If you have not added any new style in your system, you will be able to see only the default fonts of Microsoft Windows.

            Illustrator is the best option. Other thing you can check is your computer Control Panel < Appearance and Presentation < Fonts. Here you will get the list of fonts which you have downloaded and default font style of Microsoft Windows. You can click on any font style and new popup block will be shown, which will show you how your content will look in a particular font style.

              Suitcase Fusion has a QuickComp tool which works fairly well, it's also a font manager which is beneficial when you shit tonne of fonts. It also links up nicely with the google font library if you want it to.
              Design is not decoration.
