    Default Font Management

    After receiving the free gift from the weekly challenge (Thanks!), I noticed after loading it that one of the fonts wasn't on my system. Naturally I had to run out and find it right away. It got me to thinking about how new folks keep track of the fonts on their system so I thought I would share this link.

    This is an old program but still works very well for me. I find I'm winding up with quite a few different fonts on my system and this program helps me to keep track of them. It's also great for when I'm looking for "just the right font" in a layout as I can easily browse through all my fonts and look at them at various sizes by adjusting a simple slider or adding my own sample text.

    AND it's free. The Font Thing

    I'm curious if anyone else uses anything similar. I'm a software junkie and I love to try different stuff!

    Thumbs up The Font Thing

    I just got the Font Thing - it came installed on my new computer! It's wonderful! I've been collecting fonts for so long - I have over 800 and the program keeps them organized and easy to install and uninstall. How did I ever live without it?!

    Where did you find the font in the template? I already used the template without the font Julie used and have forgotten the name of it. I would love to add it to my over 800 fonts (LOL)!

    Question.... I'm getting this message when I run Setup:

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

    If I proceed with the installation, is this going to run on my system (XP)???

    Hmmm...I'm not sure. I didn't use the setup file. I downloaded the second one on that link and then just unzipped it into it's own directory and ran it from there.

    I'm on XP too and it's running fine.

    Wish I could be more help.
