"regarding error message . . ."

July 22, 2010  |  By pnamajck

 |  Version: FontHit Font Tools 0.2.5

Pros

nothing to speak of . . .

Cons

nothing to speak of . . .

Summary

the following is just meant as indication / clarification . . . in case other clients decide to install this software.

regarding error message "this setup requires the .net framework version 1.1.4322." . . .

even if you have newer version(s) of microsoft's NET framework already installed . . . those versions are missing crucial support files which fonthit_font_tools 0.2.5 depends on. you need to install NET version 1.1 . . . obtainable from microsoft at :
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=262d25e3-f589-4842-8157-034d1e7cf3a3&displaylang=en

don't forget . . . after installing this NET version . . . make sure windows "updates" . . . this will offer security fixes . . . so, less likely for your computer to be screwed up by societal dissidents / hackers.

"Not even going to try it"

October 04, 2009  |  By Ken_Saunders

 |  Version: FontHit Font Tools 0.2.5

Pros

None at all. I'd prefer to give a negative rating than a single star.

Cons

No existing web site to get more info, support, updates, etc
http://software.fonthit.com/ doesn't exist
I'm not going to blindly download, install, and run software on my computer just because it is on download.com with a handful of good reviews.

Summary

FontHit Font Tools should be removed from this site

"Works great, BUT it conflicted with Windows XP."

November 28, 2007  |  By melvin53

 |  Version: FontHit Font Tools 0.2.5

Pros

The program installed easily. I was able to quickly see all my different fonts.

Cons

Unfortunately, the program conflicted with my Windows XP MCE. After installation, Windows would not shut down my computer. When I uninstalled the program, I was able to shut down successfully.

"This program ROCKS!"

June 24, 2007  |  By Jim Harmon

 |  Version: FontHit Font Tools 0.2.5

Pros

Easily view fonts BEFORE you install them. In its most basic mode, it displays a few upper case, lower case and punctuation characters to give you an idea of the font's completeness. If there are a few unusual characters that you need, you can activate the Character Map and it will show you the entire font.

Cons

Unless you tell it to, it doesn't display the filename. This is easy to do and the methd is obvious - but I would have preferred that the default action would have been to display it.

But here are the two biggest complaints I have with it:

1) When you run it for the first time, it will set itself up to automatically load at Startup. I use Winpatrol and was alerted to this fact, so I declined this option. I would hope that the available setting from the dropdown menu would also disable it if necessary.

2) This program will minimize to System Tray when you click on the Close button. In order to actually close it and remove it from memory you'll have to use CRTL-X to close it.

These annoyances aside, I will definitely continue using the program.

"Despite a few minor flaws, this program is generally excellent."

April 10, 2007  |  By eulali

 |  Version: FontHit Font Tools 0.2.5

Pros

It shows me what my fonts look like. I can easily organize them in folders for back-up purposes. Though it may not show (in photoshop or ms paint) on which category I placed the fonts. At least it's easier for me to memorize the names.

over-all it does it's job of installing/uninstalling, organizing the fonts.

Cons

In my case, sometimes it crashes when I switch from one folder to another (folders where the fonts are located).

Also it seems to take a lot of RAM..sometimes more than my P2P client (which is expected to take more because of it's nature).

"very nice"

November 25, 2006  |  By blablupp

 |  Version: FontHit Font Tools 0.2.5

Pros

great UI: clean & professional looking, support for open type fonts is a big advantage over other apps. character map is useful too.

Cons

non-latin characters don't seem to be appearing correctly, would be nice to filter fonts by type (eg. serif, sans-serif, monospace, etc). Also to allow creation of font groups.
