Editors' Review

+

Some fonts are better suited for certain projects than others, but it's not always easy to preview and compare fonts to make the best decision. FontViewOK is a lightweight font viewer that lets you do exactly that. It's nothing fancy, but it's a great way to easily see what fonts look like in a variety of styles.

The program's interface is plain, consisting mostly of just a list of fonts. You can enter custom text with which to preview the fonts, and can also see what the fonts look like bolded, italicized, struck-through, and underlined, as well as in different sizes and colors. To compare fonts, you can split the screen and display side-by-side lists, making it easy to analyze the differences between fonts or find fonts that go well together. We liked that the program has the ability to print font lists, as well as a print preview feature. The only real drawback we found to FontViewOK was its lack of Help file, but this isn't a serious issue, as everything about the program is pretty intuitive. We also wished that the font list was searchable, instead of depending solely on a drop-down menu, but this is a relatively minor complaint. Overall, FontViewOK doesn't have as many features as some of the other font managers we've seen, but it's a nice, lightweight way to view and compare fonts.

FontViewOK comes as a ZIP file and is accessible after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program to everyone.

"Very user friendly; simple yet flexible."

May 15, 2011  |  By nannamomt

 |  Version: FontViewOK 2.02

Pros

Everything formatted into one window
No split screens
shows font details
ability to type in your own words

Cons

does not pick up on every type of font format

Summary

I have tried other font viewer programs, some more complicated or cluttered than others. Some required several steps to get to the final effect(s) I wanted. This program is all in one window - no need to refer to a split window. It is very user friendly with simple drop-down menus, ability to enlarge or reduce the font using a slider, add color and effects easily. I just love this program and it's all that I need when I'm looking for just the right font to fit in perfectly with a project that I am working on.

"compact, user friendly, accurate."

April 24, 2011  |  By nannamomt

 |  Version: FontViewOK 2.01

Pros

Not crammed full of all the bells and whistles I don't need. Easy to navigate around.

Cons

None. This program is just what I needed.

Summary

If you are looking for a font viewer that loads, for the most part, just about every font included and loaded into the OS, this is it. It provides more than a one or two word sample of how the font looks and gives samples of BOLD, Italic, etc., if it is included in the original font's styles. I recommend this program if you are looking for something that is simple and clean.
