As others have stated this was out before Apple did their FontBook and it was designed for an entirely different purpose. That is to print each of the fonts installed in your computer to a separate page. so that you can create a typography book of fonts and see how they look in print. For this purpose it is an outstanding program.

Not as good as Mac's default Font Book but it's a good try anyway.

Probably not the best choice for a name, since Apple provides Font Book on all Macs as the default font manager.

Actually Lemke Software GmbH had the name first, about 1999?... :)

Not only did he have the name first, but this isn't a font manager, it's a character preview utility.

I used FontBook years ago to create a Font Catalog, after search long and wide.. I found the program again after changing job. WONDERFUL! Printed and created pdf files of all fonts, active and inactive. I would recommend this program to anyone. Version 4.4 is what I used and I am on OS X 10.4.7. The only thing I wish the program did, was put the fonts in alphabetical order. Ihave them collected in folders, A Fonts, B Fonts, etc...

BEST OF ALL, $10! You can't beat that!!!!
