Font Mate for Mac1.1.1

31 July 2007

Your trusty companion for font selection and text styling.

What is Font Mate for Mac

Font Mate is a simple program to help you see how fonts look on your computer, and to help you find symbol characters. Font Mate shows you a list of all the fonts installed on your computer. Choose any font from the list and it will show you what all the characters in that font look like. Choose any one of those characters and you will see an enlarged version of it at the bottom of the page (with its ASCII code in decimal and hex, should you be interested). Click the button to copy that character to the clipboard if you want to use it in another application.

I like it better than what is built into the system. I've never had much success using the system character viewer, which is quite small. This has a nice sized screen and you can easily view all those tiny accents and such.

As the comments below point out, there are a number of different ways to manage and access fonts, but I think this simple piece of freeware has a place. I have an older machine (iMacG4 800) and find most font apps slow to the point of distraction, including Font Book, or the other one I use FontDoc, which takes several minutes to start up. If I am in Photoshop and want to select a font, this app does the job perfectly. It opens in an instant, has a tiny CPU and RAM footprint and lets me quickly go through my library to find the one I want. Yes that is a niche use, but it fills my niche perfectly! Thanks to the dev. Slightly naff icon mind you!

I didn't "slag off" anything. I'm sure your tool works well, but it doesn't do anything that isn't available from the tools that come with the system, which are neither inadequate, nor complicated.

OSX already has this built in. It's a standard feature. Why try to reinvent the wheel?
