I'm looking for a Font Viewer. I want to be able to view my fonts and temporarily install them from the program. Anyone have any suggestions?

I use a freebie program called The Font Thing. It's REALLY old but works great. It was originally created for Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0, hahaha - BUT I found a fix for it somewhere and it works on Windows 7. I just looked and found the program online at Cnet, but I can't remember where I got the fix or the workaround for it. http://download.cnet.com/The-Font-Thing/3000-10248_4-127875.html

Me too. The links I posted l will work for you on Windows 7. Just follow the instructions.
I'm sure there are other program choices out there, that's just what I use.

I use ACDSee to organize my supplies and it has a great font feature.

I use "nexus font" because it was suggested somewhere (but just recently started using it). I thought they said that you can temporarily install fonts...but I haven't figured out that part yet - but I need to get it figured out! LOL!
