One day I finally got sick of spending eight years maintaining samples of all my 300+ fonts by hand. So I banged out FontDoc, a very simple program which shows you all of the fonts on your system using any text and any size you choose. Finally, no more squinting at microscopic WYSIWYG font menus or having to click on a font to see what it looks like.
FontDoc simply spits out a Rich Text document containing samples of all your fonts. Save it or print it for future reference. I'm hoping for big time-savings when I have to pick the perfect typeface for the titles in my next iMovie.
I'm also really hoping FontDoc will be rendered obsolete by something in a future version of Font Book. But until then, it's yours, dear denizens of Macdom.
What's new in this version:
- Fixes bug where printing in Leopard would only produce one page of output
- Fixes bug where no fonts would appear in Jaguar
- Corrupt fonts may cause crashes. Please don't use them.
