LAST VERSION - 1.4
19-Apr-10

The program is designed for viewing, installing and removing fonts from the system. Unlike other similar utilities, Font Viewer does not require the installation of fonts in the system to view them. The supported fonts are OpenType, TrueType, and Type1. Another useful - possibility of a temporary (until the first reboot) installing fonts. Ie fonts will not be copied to the Fonts folder and will not be entered in the register, but will stay in memory and accessible to all program until the computer would not restart. Viewing fonts can be carried out in the main program window or in a separate. This is handy when you need to see a large text. All program settings are stored in the registry.

I'm hopeful somebody will find my program useful for themselves. Please post all your comments in this thread, I will be glad to any feedback and suggestions.

Looks really nice! Good job! :)

But when I switch between the tabs, system fonts will be loaded everytime to the list. Not cached?

I specifically did it, that would not have to manually update the window each time when some other program will install its own font. ... but in principle can be cached.

By the way, forgot to write about the hot keys.

F5 - Update window
Enter - View selected font in a single window
Esc - Close preview window
Del - Remove selected font (for System fonts only)

You need to run the EXE, otherwise the icons will not be visible.

Another excellent piece of work! Any chance that you could add the ability to filter the fonts. For example, sometimes I'm looking for a script font so I'd like to see only those that contain the word "script". Anyways, 5* from me for a really professional looking script.

Very good done Yashied! I definitely missed this topic before.

I use The Font Thing for managing fonts, but nice to see tool with almost the same fuctionality done in pure Autoit.

Btw, mentioned program have very useful function - loading fonts instead installing, so fonts can be used in programs, but gone after system restart. This keep Fonts folder clean, when you use fonts only once. I think this would be good addition.

Thanks Lazycat.

The function, which are you talking about already exists: Install - Temporary.
