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.

"Absolutely AMAZING!"

May 26, 2011  |  By trueblue32

 |  Version: NexusFont 2.5.5

Pros

Able to see/use/manipulate fonts without having to load/unload/find. All the fonts on our server are INSTANTLY available. Can NOT beat this application if you are a designer!

Cons

Bold/unbold/underscore options available for each font hesitate on shortcut commands...they work, they just hesitate upon first use.

Summary

This is an amazing piece of software. Download it immediately! Your computer (and nerves) will thank you!

"Perfect - reliable, intuitive layout, fast"

March 15, 2011  |  By opelate

 |  Version: NexusFont 2.5.5

Pros

I was pleasantly surprised at how fast the install and font loading was when I first used this. The problem with a lot of font browsers is the load time.
The layout is quite intuitive, clean and simple - and it's not hideously ugly, bonus!

Cons

Would be useful to have the ability to close or move panes to different positions.

Summary

I'd definitely recommend using - best font browser/previewer I've found so far.

"a must have font manager"

December 01, 2010  |  By sapi_id

 |  Version: NexusFont 2.5.5

Pros

simple and easy to use, nice GUI, font description is available, anti aliasing feature.

Cons

UI language, indonesian and vietnamese, doesnt work as we expected.
icon's menu has almost the same color with the GUI background. it should be differ.

Summary

If you're working with a lot of fonts, you should have this. Anyway, i'm gonna give this 5 star, but the lack of UI language touch my super ego.

"Easy to clean up extra unneeded fonts!"

November 13, 2010  |  By FL-Jan

 |  Version: NexusFont 2.5.5

Pros

This software shows what each font looks like so you can eliminate all those that are essentially duplicates with different names. I love it!

Cons

Can't think of anything wrong with this program.

Summary

Great way to clean up excess fonts, free up space, or whatever. I like not having a long drop down menu of similar fonts to choose from within my various programs!

"quick tool for font organizing"

November 11, 2010  |  By johnniedoo

 |  Version: NexusFont 2.5.5

Pros

It gives a quick view of all or any font i have. and i have about 1500 separate ones.

Cons

I rarely use it. it is there but i am just a normal computer user but use lots of fonts making my dvd labels or light scribes so use lots of fonts but not in any professional way. so it is good to have but i by pass it more often than i use it.

Summary

i just dont bother to use it , i have had it around for a long time in other computer builds i have. i just dont bother with it much though it is a useful little thing. i guess i really dont need anything more than what is built in to other programs even though i have so many fonts i use. maybe i need a how to on font management.

"A must for Graphic Designers"

November 03, 2010  |  By ilove2survey

 |  Version: NexusFont 2.5.5

Pros

You can type in the exact copy, select the exact point size and see an exact sample of your headline in all of the fonts you have installed. Plus you can select the fonts you like and then view them against one another.

Cons

That you can't close or minimize the left hand frames and see only the font lists in the window.

Summary

LOVE IT ~ LOVE IT ~ LOVE IT ! ! ! !! No designer should be without this program!
