Navigate through fonts on your system.

Overview

Font Safari is your guide as you navigate the collection of fonts on your system. It allows you to view all of the characters in the font, and also allows you to simulate the font in alternative encodings such as Mac Roman, Windows ANSI and Unicode. Font Safari displays valuable information about each selected character such as the US Keyboard shortcuts, UTF8 and UTF16 codes, and the Unicode name of each character.

Features:
  • View all of the characters in the selected font in a compact table.
  • Live resizing so you choose the size of the characters.
  • Display the Mac US Keyboard shortcut (MacRoman encoding)
  • Display the UTF8 and UFT16 codes.
  • Display the Unicode name for each character

Rather slow , no live scrolling and no arrow key support in the main viewer. Good to say its a beta...Needs "new" command to show a new window. It doesn't really look like a font viewer to me, seems more like an advanced character palette , no better than the one included in Mac OS X 10.3

Thank you for your comments "Anonymous". There were a number of changes based on your suggestions. Now the arrow keys work in both the Character Map view and the Telescope view to change the highlighted character. In addition you can "hop" to any character by clicking it's keyboard combination (most useful in the Telescope view). Significant performance improvements were made especially while changing highlighted characters. This application is very similar to the built-in Character Palette (only available in OS 10.3 and higher), but adds a number of additional features including Windows ANSI encoding and keyboard shortcuts. I believe that it is also easier to navigate and faster than the OS X 10.3 Character Palette. If you have other suggestions for Font Safari, please post them in this comments section or via our webform at: http://dreystone.com/feedback.php

Yes, definitely slow. Felt like I was stuck on the 101 in LA during rush hour.

You can only view installed fonts! Why do I need it? Make it able to view all fonts and I like it.
