If you enjoy layout and design of any type, you’re bound to have wished for a quick way to preview text in several different fonts. Most graphics programs allow you to view only one at a time. Changing fonts over and over can be very tedious and often by the time you’ve gone through the list you can’t remember the ones you liked. Enter FontLister.
I’ve searched high and low and among both free and non-free software, FontLister is the best I’ve found. Even better is the fact that there’s an older version for free and the new version is non-limited shareware with a $5 registration fee.
Features include viewing both installed and non-installed fonts, installing fonts, viewing custom text and best of all, you can view many fonts as you want at a time. The user interface is great and it runs very, very fast. I highly recommend it. (Windows only).
