Over time numerous fonts are collected on your computer, and you are just looking for exactly the right one for a specific occasion. Again and again, you try out one or another type; however, the software you use does not provide an adequate listing. Either you have to select them individually to look at them, or the dialog is much too small without the possibility to compare them.
PrintMyFonts makes it possible to list all your installed fonts and arbitrary fonts from your hard drive or disk. You can type in any sentences or single characters displayed in the different fonts to compare these fonts. The font list can be displayed on your screen, or you can save the list as PDF, Microsoft Word document (DOC or DOCX), or image file in the formats BMP, JPG, or GIF. The best output format depends on your purpose. For example, an image output can be used to show a font list on your homepage.
It is entirely up to you which fonts are printed and which sentences or letters are used. For example, you can print all your fonts or only a few for your following document chosen with the preview. Then you have possibilities for direct comparison without noticeable additional expenses. Additionally, you can print examples and the name of all your fonts. This provides a font survey for your following document on paper.
You can use any Unicode character in your output that you want to view in the fonts. PrintMyFonts can also check whether some characters are available in a font or not and show how these characters will appear. This is important because not every font contains all possible Unicode characters.
