Good FontManager?

Post by V_Sirin » Sat Sep 08, 2018 5:55 am

Isn't it about time SoftMaker addresses the dearth of a good font manager for Windows?

I'd buy it.

I haven't found anything handier than old Bitstream Font Navigator. It works on any species of Windows and with ridiculous numbers of fonts, even if scattered all over your system (my collection is about 23,000 fonts).

On linux the old GTK Font Manager was very similar, but it is no longer maintained and is starting to fall out of repositories.

Greetings,

On the assumption that a company that sells fonts might also sell font manager software, I visited Softmaker's web site some weeks ago looking for a font manager. I assumed that it didn't because there seems to be no mention of its existence at the page you linked to (thanks), nor on the photo of the box it comes in. Thanks for the heads-up.

Unsolicited Suggestion:
Perhaps you might suggest to someone that the existence of the font manager software be better documented and publicized.

Related Questions:
Can you point me to a PDF manual, CHM help file, or alike that would document the features and operation of the font manager, or could you give me a link from which I could obtain the information myself?
I'm especially keen on being able to save my fonts and font setting so that if SMO 2021 or some other software next installs fonts, I can easily return things to the way they were. Does Softmaker's font manager have such an ability? If not, can you suggest one that does?

Thanks in advance.

The Font Manager which I mentioned here is basically to manager only this huge collection of 7,500 premium-quality TrueType fonts which comes in this package MageFont NOW.

Product page mentioned about the Font Manager which is included in the package: https://www.softmaker.com/en/megafont

MegaFont NOW comes with a capable font manager for Windows that lets you manage this huge font collection conveniently, prints specimen pages, shows character sets and activates/deactivates groups of fonts with a single click.

Sorry but I don't have any idea of any other Font Manager.

Thanks
