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.
