You don't have to be a programmer or graphic designer to appreciate FontShow, a simple little program that lets you view every TrueType font installed on your system. How many times have you just wanted to see a font's entire character and/or symbol set before selecting it for a project? FontShow lets you all characters of a font, plus any sample text you want to enter.

Right from the FontShow viewer, you can look at a font's detailed properties (i.e., its logical structure and metrics), copy any character to the clipboard, go straight to the system Fonts folder or to the Control Panel. Programmers and developers will also like the display option for Windows stock font objects and the ability to view ASCII codes. You can run multiple instances of FontShow, and optionally place its icon in the system tray for easy access.

FontShow has a 30-day evaluation period and is completely functional without any nag reminders. So, in the shareware spirit, you're on your honor to register by sending your $20 (check or money order in U.S. funds) to: Gregory Braun, P.O. Box 1307, Milwaukee, WI 53201-1307 USA. (International postal orders must be in U.S. funds.) Registered users will receive regular update notices and email support.
