Works great in Vista, too.

Some Guy, X-Fonter is a font manager and not an image tool and it should be reviewed as a font manager. So your score is really irrelevant.

X-Fonter is a top-notch font manager that does what it needs to do. Even the image tool is fun to play with.

makes a good font viewer, as far as a graphic creator not impressed, their are free programs that do a much better job.

I'm not sure what small bugs were in 6.0, because I've yet to have any problems with it, and I use the program almost daily. The database change does speed up font display, especially of OpenType fonts. However, I'll have to respectfully disagree with Pater below, as I don't have the same experience with X-Fonter as he had. Much of X-Fonter's layout is customizable, so unclutter it. But a font manager is built to provide every bit of information you need for each installed font. And I've never experience anything slow with X-Fonter. Ever.

X-fonter is a well-featured and stable font program. Version 6 is significantly improved. To my mind the interface remains too busy, which is perhaps inevitable when so much is squeezed into the program (e.g., do I really need an image and effect studio in a font manager?). Other niggles include a clumsy zoom on the character map; a very limited help index and sluggish font collections.

X-Fonter continues to set the standard in font management. Version 6.x not only is superfast, but expands user customization options and control over printing, reporting, and search. The autoscroll with mousewheel is a nice touch. Move, copy, zip, rename, even I'm impressed!

[re stewcam]: Oh yeah, I hate it when the developer informs you how to contact them — that's a big problem. NOT! Jeez. Starts fine on my system, in less than one second.

Full of functionality but irritatingly slow to start. Also one of the annoying bunch of shareware programs that display the owner's address and e-mail address in the about box (no, thank you!).

Filter options are highly convenient and a great usability addition to an already solid, well-rounded font utility.

With this version, X-Fonter is now setting the standard for versatility, utility, and features. Well worth purchase, since you won't need to look elsewhere.

A very good program esp. its'ability to compare two fonts simultaneously.

However, all new users should be warned that this beta will expire at the end of December. The author's site itself says so.

Excellent program. The only drawback is that it supports TrueType and OpenType fonts and not Type 1 (PostScript) fonts. Great viewer, easy to use interface, very good looking program.
