A Way to Preview Fonts for Text?

Post by roadroamer »

Does anyone know if there is a way to preview how text would look with all of the fonts you have available in Paint Shop Pro? For example, if I wrote the word "forum," is there a way to preview it on all of my fonts together in one place/window? It would be a huge timesaver. Thanks for your help!

Not in PSP itself. But there are free font managers that will do that. Fontbase and Fontrunner are two examples. You can Google for free font managers and find a variety of them.

Select your text.
In the fonts dropdown list, move your cursor on the different fonts.
Your text will change and display the selected font.

As MainType ( https://www.high-logic.com/font-manager/maintype ) has a new free edition if you use looking for a proper font, favorities. That's the right tool.

Why does the Maintype page give the option of "Free Download" or "Buy Now"? What is the difference between both versions - just the number of supported fonts?
I've been using FontRunner for years with no limit on number of fonts. It's always been free. http://codeandrun.com/john/font-runner-2/font-runner/
