    "No Unicode support"

    January 5, 2014  |   By checyr

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    It works for English fonts.

    Cons

    Unable to display CJK characters in sample text; they show up as "?".

    Summary

    The point for me to use something other than the Font View that comes with Windows is to compare some CJK fonts. Without the ability to show CJK characters, this program is unfortunately useless to me. And I didn't spend much time in exploring it.

    "Love It!!!"

    February 9, 2012  |   By loonie.socal

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    It is easy to use.

    Cons

    That when using it if you close the window and did not install the font in PSP the font will no longer be in PSP. So just to not close AMP, Until your done with the font.

    Summary

    I have been using it since 2008!!! :)

    "More features than any other free font manager"

    December 9, 2011  |   By Chufflebean

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    View all fonts in a folder at once
    Categorize your fonts
    Temporarily install fonts
    Preview fonts using your own sample text

    Cons

    Cannot categorize not-installed fonts

    Summary

    This is pretty robust for freeware. As a designer, I have found it endlessly useful for selecting fonts to use in my projects.

    It allows you to view, install, and uninstall fonts, and, most usefully in my book, organize your uninstalled fonts in categories.

    Unfortunately, you cannot categorize the fonts that are not installed. If this feature were included, I would easily give this program 5 stars.

    "Amp Font Viewer 3.86 Nice Font Viewer"

    November 15, 2011  |   By stinker44

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    If you have never used a Font Viewer where you can browse to any folder before installing a font you might not want, this is the program for you. Price is right and one of the best one's I have tried. You can view all fonts or individually. It also gives you a list of the fonts installed and those not installed along with font family info. One can also copy a list of all your fonts,search for fonts,plus you can set the font size in the viewer.Also under organize you can delete a font,add a font
    Best little program I've used in a long time.

    Cons

    I really can't say anything on cons, most do not have what this program has

    Summary

    I like it and will continue to use it, would recommend for those who want more information about fonts,really has a lot of nice features to it.Give it a try.

    "Constantly stops responding"

    August 25, 2011  |   By peacimowen

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    Nice way to view several fonts at once.

    Cons

    When installing fonts stops responding and must be killed. Font viewing and installing interface feels limited for the accessing the several thousand fonts I have.

    Summary

    Functional, but has a few flaws that limit its usability.

    "Great nuts and bolts font manager BUT..."

    July 9, 2011  |   By radioscooter

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    Very fast, does not need to scan your fonts like Nexus. Stripped down. No flash.

    Cons

    I can't seem to get it to allow grouping/categorizing of UNinstalled fonts. If it can actually do this - then it's the best manager out there. If not - NOT.

    Summary

    I have been trying to get my head around a good Font organizer for years. I've been using FV for a while now, but am frustrated because I need to group fonts by category. All the info seems to indicate that it is possible, but I can't seem to get it to work with UNinstalled fonts that aren't in the system folder. Grouping installed fonts is helpful too, but the whole reason to have a font viewer that installs fonts on the fly or temporarily is to not bog down the system. Which means it would be fairly crucial to organize/categorize/preview the fonts BEFORE you install them. So is this possible with AMP? I like this program better than most others, for speed etc. but I can't get it to do this one thing.

    Thanks for any help.

    Regards.

    Scot Fleming

    "Great if you have 100's of fonts."

    March 11, 2011  |   By KIKI556

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    Preview with your own text or full alphabet. Also with colour/bold etc.

    Cons

    Sometimes takes a while to load more complicated fonts. The screen where you can categorize fonts is hard to use.

    Summary

    Free, works with Windows 7 (64 bit) I've been using it for years (on XP too)

    "Good Item!"

    October 16, 2010  |  

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    It brought more order to my font selection procedures.

    Cons

    It isn't completely automatic, but considering it's a freebie, I can live with having to think a little and do a some input..

    Summary

    I actually use it and it does a pretty good job. I do some for hire photography so it's nice to have something like this to help out. It was an instructor in a Photoshop class who first got me on it.

    May 6, 2010  |   By badbadbad911

    Version: AMP Font Viewer 3.86

    Pros

    Very fast - many customisable options for viewing, one-click uninstall (which even has the option to copy the uninstalled font to a folder of your choice). I am extremely happy with this program and it is completely free! I would highly recommend

    Cons

    none really... does all you want ... and more!
