Comments on Font Manager

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Downloaded and installed without a problem (note you need to restart the prog to complete registration). The REAL benefit of this against the others is it's ability to allow you to type your headline or whatever and then view it in all installed fonts. You can then select several fonts and compare against each other, plus check what each font looks like in bold, italic, underline. Up and down arrow buttons allow enlargement and reduction of font size. Bulletproof UI and a minimal ask of the CPU and memory.
Far and away the best I've used.

Finally...a program I could really use, but I missed it. Why? Because when I was trying yesterday the SITE WOULDN'T LOAD!!! It would be nice if there were some provision for things like this. Maybe having users send an email (which would be time stamped) so that they could receive in return a link that would allow them another shot at it.

I installed TheFontThing and then I installed FontManager from GOTD. FontManager looks better IMHO. But when it says "The program is available for $29.95, but it will be free for our visitors as a time-limited offer." does this mean the program will cease operating one day? Or is it good forever? I'm always suspicious when it says time-limited offer.

Font Thing is a 1999 program!

Re Font Frenzy...

Opens the registration window. If you have not already registered, you will be told when your copy of Font Frenzy™ will expire.
A free unlock code can be obtained from our website by simply submitting your e-mail address. Once you have obtained this code, simply enter your information into the boxes provided and you will then have unlimited use of Font Frenzy™ and no "nag" screen will appear.

So the price of Font Frenzy is to provide your email address and subject yourself to more spam than you get already! Unless a freeware program is really exceptional, this would be enough to make me pass on it.

As one who likes to collect and use a variety of freeware fonts, this program will be very handy. Some of the fonts I've downloaded in the past looked easy to read on their sample pages, but when I actually tried to use them, proved to be difficult for other people to try to read!

This is great, to be able to see all the fonts so I can sort them into categories and only load the ones that I really need, into Windows itself.

Still, as always, I'll check out the freeware links and add them to a list I have so that if I ever have HD crash, I have sources for more freeware alternatives to this program.

I was a little apprehensive about downloading this, as many font programs I have used are very basic and don't offer much more than a single solution. However, the install was easy and while I still have some exploring to do, this is very well done. Simple, but with the functions I need.
When you're doing graphic design, finding the right font can be a pain - especially when you have thousands (seriously). With this program, I can type in the text I'm working with and then browse the fonts. The real treat being able to load the fonts I haven't installed for comparison.

GAotD may not always have something I'm interested in, but today I got something for FREE that is worth more than the price I paid ($0 out of pocket). That makes up for all the days I skip on.

By the way I tried the two free recommendations here; AMP ran as a plain user (after the first error was dismissed); The Font Thing didn't run as a user at all. Running both as Admin, I preferred the user interface of today's offering over both of them, though AMP as a fair second. The Font Thing was a very Windows3.1 interface.

None of them are designed to cope with truly large font sets. I once ran a font identification search engine so I have about 20,000-odd fonts and ordinary font managers don't cut it. Some sort of hierarchy is needed and an automatic classification scheme.

Also, for anyone interested in fonts, some of the reports at the page below are an absolute must-read: ... http://www.sanskritweb.net/forgers.htm

Re #18 & 19. The uninstalled / non-installed fonts show up in the "Browser" folder.

Re #20. If you right-click any font name in the "installed" tab, that font is copied (not moved) to the "selected" tab. It is more or less like a 'favorites' or 'bookmark' tab, and is handy for keeping frequently used fonts without having to search through the whole "installed" tab.

Excellent program The registration number needs to be entered next to the down arrow at the Help question mark.

The software easily installs on XP SP3 as well as Vista Premium and works flawlessly. Thank you Styopkin Software and GOTD. Nice, thoughtful addition to my software needs.

Styopkin, the zoom feature is particulaly appreciated by me. I can easily closely examine the quality of the fonts at different screen and print sizes.

Nice program, very intuitive and easy to use - however, NexusFont is freeware that also provides this functionality and may well be worth a look as well.

Best thing- easy list view with minimal interface overheads. You can see more fonts than other programs I've seen.
Also protects system fonts from deletion.

The colour options are hidden under 'options' unlike italics, bold etc and would be better from their own button. Too many clicks, and not obvious enough.

For truetype fonts it lists lots of info, but it's really annoying to be told 'not available' for non true type fonts. The info tab should be greyed out for these, e.g.

Like #17 and a couple of others despite being admin, and the program saying it was registered, it wasn't next time I ran it.

So I went looking... NexusFont (freeware) also offers the same viewing abilities (but fewer on the screen), selected fonts, adds favourites, install, uninstall, easy discrimination of installed and uninstalled fonts. GUI is in various languages. But help (not really needed) (online) is Korean. The interface is easy to navigate.

wow!!! i love how this program immediately shows all my fonts: before i even figured out how to do it, it had done it for me!!

i love that the relative size is shown between fonts.

this will be such a time saver for me!

i tried to uninstall one font which showed up as little squares (i.e., it looks like i don't have the capability to use that font.) it said: "you can uninstall only TrueType and OpenType files. "Euro Sign": skipped." can someone tell me what that means, other than i can't delete that style of font?? thanks.

Had some problems installing on Vista. I have UAC disabled, and usually work as a non-admin user; I log in as admin to install programs like this. It does install and run OK as admin but has major problems running as a non-admin user (including not seeing the font samples unless highlighted, and not being able to exit the program except by killing it via the task manager).

If you want an alternative font manager from a major software developer, download Corel graphics suite trial.

Use it for the trial period or how ever long you want. The core applications will not work after the trial is up, but the font navigator and screen capture will continue to work, at least for versions X3 and earlier.

At the end of the trial period, just do a custom uninstall and leave the applications that still work.

I am having fun with this! I have fonts installed that I have never, ever seen before. I admit that while downloading it, I imagined myself uninstalling it, but no, this is a keeper for sure. Not a vital program that everyone must have, but a fun font utility that most everyone would want to have. Sure does spice up emails!

Way better than any useless screensaver would be. Just hoping that a screensaver is NOT forced upon us tomorrow!

I was going to pass on this one as I thought I'd have no need for it but, after reading all the comments, I decided to try it. It seems a nice application. I especially appreciate being able to compare two different fonts side-by-side. However, I doubt I would be willing to pay $30 for it.

One thing I do not like about it is a matter of personal preference. I intensely dislike huge toolbars and, in general, would like the whole application better if it took up less space. The ability to reduce the size of the font in the column displaying the font name would help.

To #87, appropriately known as ohthestupidity: If you are under 18, you may yet acquire a less offensive means to display what you obviously consider your vastly superior intellect. If you are over that age my I suggest professional help.

Thanks GAOTD. Now I can see all my fonts at once!!

To #17, I saw 6 lines in the readme key and thought these were 6 separate serial numbers and kept getting error. Once I copied all 6 lines at once, the software got registered without any problem.

This is fine piece of software with many expected and desired capabilities.By default we have many fonts in windows(letters or graphical characters). Besides that If a person has to create some personal or professional document he would love to bring life to his creations by using new font styles.Suppose someone gets a whole bulk font package from some source and How dreadfully cumbersome it would be to open and check each font of which to install with the help of the default windows font viewer.I had been looking for such a tool since some months and Came across few freeware applications (free and easy font viewer, fast font preview ) which are indeed useful but I can say that this software is a combination of the features of the freeware tools.Very useful, thanks GAOTD.
Here is a link for downloading lots of fonts:

I found your Font Manager could not do the basic things I use The Font Thing for, which is install, uninstall, delete fonts, whether installed or not. The only advantage I saw was that it would not allow me to uninstall Windows fonts. It would not allow me to delete any fonts that were not installed in the system font folder.

I have uninstalled your program and will continue to use The Font Thing.

Pardon my ignorance, but I have never fooled around with fonts. If I were to remove a particular font or fonts with this (or any) application, and later, I was to receive a document which required the removed font, what would happen? Would I be unable to read my received document?

#46 asked this brilliant question:

"Dumb question.. how can this show UNinstalled fonts from your hard drive? I mean, if they are not installed, how can they show up?"

Answer: You are right, that is a very dumb question. What kind of answer would you like? Would you like a technical explanation from an engineer (something tells me you wouldn't understand it)? Or are you asking, "Does it REALLY do that? Really? Huh? Really? No kidding?"

To your first question, I would ask you, "How can you look at a painting that isn't installed on your wall?" I mean, a painting that is still in the box, sitting on the floor? Perhaps you can OPEN THE BOX and TAKE A PEAK INSIDE, just like a software application can look inside a data file. Fonts are basically images after all.

And if you are simply incredulous about this possibility, I'll indulge you and say, SURE, everyone here who has confirmed that you CAN view un-installed fonts is just imagining this.

If you are under 18, we will let you off easy and require you to take only a remedial logic class. If you are over that age, please see the cashier to pay your fine.

Wow, this is such a great product. I never realized there was a program like this until now and in the few minutes I've had this one up and checking it out I have fallen in love with it. Some people might think this is a useless program, but for font collectors like me with over 2,000 different fonts, it's excellent.

So, for a great product, here is my great review:

The file downloaded, extracted and installed with no problem on Windows XP Home SP2. The Code to unlock the software is pretty long, so I'm glad copy and paste is my friend.

For those who might have trouble finding where to enter the code, it's under the info arrow (last icon at the top). Select "Registration", paste the very long code into the box and click "OK". It will tell you to restart the program. Do so and you will be set.

The program does what the description says it will do. There are so many features and things you can do with the fonts you have on your computer, it would take too long and too much space to list them all here. I highly recommend this product to anyone who loves fonts.

If something ever happened to my computer and I lost this giveaway, I'd most likely buy this to have it again.

Thank you. I am in the middle of a web design class, and have been using CorelDraw for about 10 years. I had an old collection of fonts, from a win95 click-art cd that I want to retrieve some fonts from. The download and install were both a breeze. The registration was copy and paste, no problem. I loaded my old fonts cd, and could select any font I desired, which you right click to install. Corel found them all and they worked perfectly. If people are complaining and wondering what the software does, they should move on.
Thanks again!

This is an excellent program if you have, like me, several hundred fonts that you need to go through when working on projects. I often use Paint Shop to create labels for my Light Scribe discs and going through fonts in that app is very time consuming. Before this great program became available I was also using the Font Navigator app that came with my old Corel program but, the difference between the Nav and this one is the ability to see multiple fonts in their respective styles all at once instead of having to scroll through them one-at-a-time. I think this program will work well, cutting search time, for those of us who've in the past spent numerous hours scrolling through fonts to find "the right one" for whatever project we're working on.

There are a number of programs like this available, but this is the only free one that I have found and its features are as nice as some of the $40 programs. Shame on Microsoft for not including the same functionality directly in the Control Panel!

I carefully downloaded the registration data and checked that I had done so correctly. When I installed the program a box appeared with the notation 'register your copy using the following data' followed by the same data I had copied -- but there was nothing for me to do there except close the box. When I ran the program it was clearly labeled 'unregistered copy'. I repeated the process with the same result.
Any solutions out there?

Reading the description I thought it seemed a little pointless (and as such thought some of the "OMG This is great" type comments were a little spammy) but it's actually fairly useful. I tried the freeware alternatives mentioned and this just seemed simpler for viewing all fonts quickly and easily, so a thumbs up from me.

WOW this is just what I was looking for! In my line of work I have over 1300 fonts installed, this is cool, easy access to what the fonts look like and probably will save me a lot of time looking up the right font for a layout.

It’s not so good with exotic fonts like FLOWERCAPS, Estrangelo Edessa or the Euclid Math set, on the installed screen of the program, but the character map displays the font just fine.

No other bugs found and I will recommend this program to my associates.

A handy utility. I have hundreds of fonts all over the place. I currently use AMP Font Viewer, freeware for non-commercial use. Both packages have similar functions.

What is missing, in my view, is the ability to catalog all available fonts wherever they may be located, rather than having to continuously browse for them.

#46 - to "uninstall" a font, it's not necessary to delete it from your hard drive. All you need to do is move the font file out of the C:\Windows\Fonts folder and put it somewhere else. That's how most of these "font manager" programs work - they keep your fonts in their own folder and copy them to the Fonts folder as needed.

IF it helps...
Back in the day PCs were dramatically slower. And if you had more than a few fonts installed, it took quite a bit longer to start Windows, &/or any program that loaded all your fonts when it was starting. Font managers like this one were crucial if your work required a lot of fonts - you could have only a few always installed, and would *switch* additional fonts on or off as needed. While not as necessary today, it can still cut down on a LOT of clutter - if you've got several hundred, or thousands of fonts (software like Corel used to include CDs with 600 or more, each one in True Type & Postscript), it's a big hassle just scrolling through them all in your word processor.

And, Windows itself doesn't make font management easy - open or view the Font folder in Windows, & every font in there is installed. Using a font manager you can put most of your fonts in another folder, then use the font manager to turn them on & off as needed.

For viewing your fonts, Font Manager helps out too, though it's not as critical - there are many free-ware utilities including some from Microsoft. On-the-other-hand it might not be a great replacement for Character Map (included in Windows) where you have quick/easy access to characters that may not be accessible to your otherwise... you can get away with ALT + 0151 or ALT + 0133 for example (EN dash & Ellipsis), and Character Map will show you those keystrokes, but several characters don't have keystroke equivalents.

I normally don't get into commenting on pricing, but with font related stuff it might help... While there are hundreds, maybe thousands of free fonts available, you can still easily spend hundreds of dollars on the rights to use just one font! Accordingly font creation & management software all used to be expensive, but as fonts became less important (embedding fonts in web pages still hasn't caught on as some hoped), some prices dropped - some didn't - and others are in between. IN a nutshell, it's really hard to compare prices like with other sorts of software - for many it's a matter of what program will do what they need, rather than how much it costs (like back when there was no replacement for Photoshop).
