"Best font manager for windows period!"

June 28, 2011  |  By Meshuggah24

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

1 Drag and Drop folders to add font groups
2 Properly uninstalls fonts (unlike SF3)

Cons

some minor finicky UI behavior, its free i can't complain.

Summary

I found this font manager to be far more useful than Extensis Suitcase F3 for windows. I uninstalled SF3 and started using this because it wasn't deactivating my fonts causing many conflicts. Pretty sure im not going back unless i find something fundamentally wrong with it, however I do not see that happening.

"Excellent font manager"

May 30, 2010  |  By badbadbad911

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

Easy to use, you can uninstall, re-arrange, install, etc, all from one application! and it is 100% FREE with NO ADS!

Cons

can lag at times if you have LOADS of fonts installed... but that applies to any font manager so I can't really say this is a con specific to this program

Summary

I love it. I use it all the time, as I'm always uninstalling/installing fonts for use with Photoshop and the like - I highly recommend.

"The best FREE font manager I've seen for Windows!"

February 02, 2010  |  By jasonhundley

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

* Nice graphical interface with large font preview area.
* Supports real-time previews -- change font size, style, etc.
* Preview installed fonts AND fonts in folders.
* Option to install fonts in different folders.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

This completely FREE font previewer and manager has more features than some of the commercial font managers out there! I was considering purchasing a professional font manager like Extensis Suitcase Fusion, but NexusFont has many of the features I liked in that product. If you are on the market for an easy-to-use font manager, definitely give NexusFont a try. If only the developer would come up with NexusFont for Mac...hmm...

"Font nexus"

September 26, 2009  |  By johnniedoo

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

It isnt bad it just doesnt do much I really want or need . does show how all the fonts will look and give the giant character map but I have that tool built in anyway.
It is easy to open up but then...

Cons

I cant make out the help as i do not read that language. I am not sure if i missed any vital operations. It is free so cant complain much. I was looking for a manager though and this does not manage fonts that I can see.

Summary

I thought it might set up suitcases of groups of working fonts I could name and use as groups to whittle down the enormous number I have in total to load up all the time. I couldnt integrate the only good part i could find which is the exemplar of each font since so many apps do not render what the font will look like in the list.. I was hoping this would do that as well as establish and name smaller groups.

"Not ready for USA"

July 30, 2009  |  By 7mustang4

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

Did not evaluate program since there was no Help file.

Cons

Useless Help file! It's in Korean! Hard to imagine how others have rated this program so highly with such a glaring error. Not aesthetically pleasing - all gray/black color scheme.

"Perfect For My Needs"

July 16, 2009  |  By onehipsista

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

This has everything I need to quickly manage my fonts. I'm a graphic designer and fontaholic. I've used ATM, Suitcase, FontExpert, etc. over the years. They tend have loads of features I don't use. NexusFont2 is perfect for managing my 5000 fonts.

Cons

Nothing I can think of. It will likely replace other font managers I've installed. I don't usually have issues with corrupt fonts so I don't need a repair feature. It can find duplicates.

Summary

Lightweight but easy to use to quickly manage fonts. I can install or uninstall fonts and preview all fonts - installed or not. I often prefer to use a font manager to select fonts for various projects. I also like that it can search my computer (and sub folders) for additional fonts and I can copy or move those to any designated folder. Deleting duplicates is easy and I can install fonts without copying them.

"Good program with many functions"

March 24, 2009  |  By drzyta

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

1. Easy to use, intuitive
2. Well designed
3. Has most of needed functions

Cons

1. There is a small bug: sometimes a cursor turns into a "stop sign" and wouldn't let you do anything until you switch to another program and back.
2. No function to enter comments for a font or label a font.

Summary

The program allows you to sort fonts into different folders, but it would be so much more useful if fonts could be labeled and then sorted/filtered by a label.

it would be very useful if there was some way to enter comments for fonts. For example some fonts could be for non-commercial use only or lack some characters/numbers.

Otherwise it's a very good program. Much better than many others.

"Just what I needed for just the right price!!"

March 12, 2009  |  By Kat1110

 |  Version: NexusFont 2

Pros

Easy to use. I particularly liked being able to pick and chose from a large number of downloaded fonts which ones I wanted to install, saving me disk space and sanity. I haven't even begun to explore all it can do in managing my fonts.

Cons

Nothing yet.
