FontExpert 2011 Features:
- View and Preview Fonts
FontExpert displays the list of all installed typefaces and lets you explore folders and preview uninstalled fonts located on your compact disks or DVDs, local disks, removable disks or network drives. You can preview the font as a paragraph of text or as a detailed character map. It is easy to choose the desired font size, font style or color.
- Assign Keywords, Ratings and Categories to Fonts
Assign keywords, categories, ratings and captions in new Tags view.
- Search in Database
Search for fonts in the database by keywords, ratings and categories in new DB Search view.
- Search for Fonts on Local Discs and Network Drives
FontExpert can search your local disks, CDs or DVDs, network drives for fonts, and put all fonts to a special list for your further work.
- Search for Duplicates and Corrupted Fonts
FontExpert automatically detects corrupted and incomplete fonts, and allows you to search for and manage duplicate fonts.
- Manage Fonts
It is easy to manage any typefaces that are shown in any view of the program. You can sort, filter, preview fonts, copy, move, delete font files, activate or deactivate fonts, add or link fonts to font groups (sets). The program can control fonts located in the Windows Fonts and Psfonts folder (used by Adobe Type Manager), so you do not need to remove fonts from standard folders as some font managers require.
- Create Font Library
FontExpert imports fonts and creates font library. You can keep your fonts organized in groups (sets), and activate or deactivate font sets. A group may include either the font file, or a link to a file located in any folder on your computer or network drive. It is easy to add fonts or links by drag-and-dropping from the Windows Explorer to the Groups view.
- Print Fonts
FontExpert can print selected fonts. It is easy to print character map, "water flow" or face name reports for selected fonts, either installed or uninstalled. You can customize and format page headers and footers as desired, for example, by adding the name of your company.
- View Advanced Font Properties
The program displays detailed information about the selected font, including type foundry or copyright, TrueType tables, number of kerning pairs in a font, Panose attributes, Windows font metrics and more.
- Examine your System for Font Errors
With the help of Detect Font Problems feature, it is easy to find errors in installed fonts and to optimize Windows by resolving typeface conflicts and by removing records about missing fonts.
- Export Fonts to HTML Web Album
FontExpert can create HTML Web Album from selected fonts. You can create GIF, JPG, PNG, TIFF, and BMP images of selected font faces. See the sample of HTML page created by FontExpert.
- Automatic Activation of Missing Fonts
FontExpert includes Missing Fonts Loader plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5, CS5.5, CS6, and for Adobe Illustrator CS5.
- Windows Shell Extensions
The program adds Open, Print and Install Font custom menu commands to Windows Explorer context menu, and adds custom property page that displays detailed attributes of selected .ttf or .otf file. FontExpert adds font management capabilities to the shell so it is easy to activate or print any font in a folder you browse in Windows Explorer.
"I must say that you have the best font program that I have ever used. I have been an art director and a graphic designer for over 40 years and I've run into a lot of them but none that had not only the ease of use, but also the complete coverage that yours has. It is a wonderful font program and I'm sure that many more out there agree with me." - Annie Wilkin
"I just wanted to let you all know how deeply satisfied I am with your product. I have been using FontExpert for almost 2 years now and it is the best font manager program I have ever seen or used. As a graphic designer this program is invaluable and I have recommended it to many of my friends and fellow designers. Keep up the good work!" - Doug Cloud
"Hi, it's not my habit to send this type of message, but this is an exception because your program also does it. I'm a web font collector, and a foreigner languages student (without presumption, I write in Japanese, French, Romanian, and Spanish, my native language), and sometimes the fonts I want to use have not all the characters I need, so I have searched for a font viewer program by too much time, and the best I found among all of them (maybe 30 or 40) is FontExpert. I want to tell you "Congratulations!" because there is no a program more complete. Show the fonts by language, show the Unicode characters, browse in others folders, customize the text sample are just a few options that we can find in many others programs, but never gathered together. When I want to search a special character in a "dingbats" font, it's very easy. All the other options as color and size change are very useful. Besides, the appearance of the program is really cool. I could gamble my soul to defend that FontExpert is, and will be the best font manager and viewer that ever existed." - Edgar Chimal
