    Picture 1.png The font thing.png With The Font Thing you can:

    Browse installed and uninstalled fonts
    Browse fonts in subfolders as a single combined list
    View sample text and individual characters in your choice of colours
    Change sample text "on the fly" or easily switch between your own
    standard text samples
    View detailed font information
    Print font samples
    Associate notes with fonts
    Install or uninstall any number of fonts at once
    Load (and unload) any number of fonts for temporary use
    Copy or delete any number of font files at once
    Rename font files to avoid file name conflicts

    Download from here:
    http://members.ozemail.com.au/~scef/tft.html

    Filter fonts according to their type
    Group fonts into collections for easier management
    Use multiple font windows simultaneously for easy font comparison and
    management.

    You can see what key makes what character. TLC and your favorite "paint" program...you have more custom art work. See characters.png

    BTW The Font Thing is FREE.

    Tell you what I did before TFT, Jerome...I unzipped the font/s then did a search...my stuff. Then I copied the fonts and pasted them in the font folder.

    Just going into the Control Panel and directly choosing the Font Folder then opening should work then click on and select "Install New Font".
