Editors' Review

Many of us don't give much thought to fonts, aside from selecting our favorite from the drop-down menu of whatever we happen to be working on. For other people, however--graphic designers, Web designers, and general font nerds--fonts are serious business. NexusFont is a simple font manager that can help people keep their fonts organized and easy to browse.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with a handful of menus and buttons for easy navigation. The program automatically accesses and displays all fonts that are installed on your computer, and you can easily import new fonts as well. NexusFont is a great way to preview and compare fonts; the heart of the program is a scrollable list of fonts that displays whatever sample text you like. You can view the fonts in different colors, sizes, and styles, as well as turn antialiasing on and off. NexusFont also displays metadata--the font's version, foundry, and so on--and you can add your own tags to the fonts. Groups and sets let you organize fonts in ways that make sense to you, although we admit we were never entirely clear on what the difference was between the two; the program's online Help file doesn't go into much detail about this. Overall, we think that NexusFont is a great way to organize and preview fonts, especially for people who don't want to shell out big bucks for a font manager.

NexusFont installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to everyone.
