Make Choosing the Perfect Font Easier with a Font Manager
For designers who have hundreds or even thousands of fonts on their computer, a font manager can be essential in helping users to choose the best fonts for their projects. FontMassive is designed to assist users in searching for the ideal font. It can be used to find similar fonts amongst a collection of thousands and more. The software also supports fonts which are specifically multilingual, such as fonts which primarily use the Cyrillic alphabet. The program provides a separate list in which fonts can be previewed. This is especially useful when you are using programs which do not have this feature built in. Symbol tables can also be previewed and symbols (glyphs) may be viewed by curve styles.
FontMassive is more than just a simple font manager. It provides some useful advanced additional features to help optimize your work and save you time. There are multiple different methods for sorting fonts. For example, fonts can be sorted according to the width of the glyphs. This allows users to easily find and compare similar fonts quickly. Symbol previews may be conveniently selected from within the font lists. If there are symbols which the computer automatically inserts to compensate for a missing glyph, these will be highlighted in the font list for your convenience. In this case, the symbols used are often replacement characters from the default system fonts such as Arial. If not, missing symbols are usually replaced by empty squares.
FontMassive provides some unique features which set it apart from other similar font managers. It also provides complete support for Cyrillic fonts, allowing users to sort different types of Cyrillic fonts to help designers choose the best one. Font names and files can be named and altered quickly and easily with the help of this font manager. Fonts may be exported in the form of a single image. Multiple images can also be exported easily, with one image to represent each set of characters from each font. When you are creating demonstrations or catalogues of different typefaces, this is particularly useful. FontMassive makes it easy to do this in minimal time and just with a few clicks of the mouse, you can have a complete visual preview, in the form of an image, for your website.
The symbol-to-symbol comparison of similar fonts makes it faster and easier to select the best font for the job. The program uses a clever method of comparing corresponding symbols by tracing the vectors of each glyph. Font styles can be saved and copied to the clipboard. For this, the popular .AI (Adobe Illustrator 3) format is used. This overcomes problems with Photoshop when the software does not recognize a font or glyph that you are using. FontMassive allows users to insert text in the form of scalable curves.
FontMassive is the ideal tool for designers, polygraphists and anyone else who regularly uses around 10 or more fonts in their projects. FontMassive is available in the form of a free ‘Light’ version and the fully-featured ‘Pro’ version, costing $49.
