Install a free iTunes-like font management app
Authored by: jwoolson on Sep 22, '05 11:00:48AM

I used LinoType's FontExplorer X RC1 for a few days, trying to use like Suitcase. I cannot recommend FEX for any purposes OTHER than viewing fonts. Specifically, do NOT turn on the management features. While the final shipping version may have a lot of the bugs worked out, this is not ready for general use. The InDesign CS/CS2 and QuarkXPress 6.5 plug-ins consistently failed to function, crashing both the layout apps and the font manager. If you only want to view some arbitrary type set in *all* your fonts at once, it does seem to do that well enough.
