"Font manager: view, organize, print... fonts"
AMP Font Viewer is an immensely helpful software application for any user that needs to regularly handle several types of fonts. The beauty of AMP Font Viewer resides in the ability of managing both the fonts that have been installed on your current word processor as well as those that have not yet been integrated into the system.
In addition to that, this manager software application includes very convenient sorting and listing features that can help users keep track of the exhaustive list of fonts on their workstation. In essence, regardless of your general organizing style and preferences, AMP Font Viewer is just the tool you need for managing fonts. Let us now review the basics of the AMP Font Viewer software application in a more detailed manner.
The installation kit for the AMP Font Viewer utility is lightweight, taking just over 1MB of your hard drive’s space. Consequentially, installing AMP Font Viewer does not take longer than two seconds on an average system. However, this program will enable users to opt for whether they want to add a shortcut on the desktop and the program files list before proceeding with the actual installation. Once AMP Font Viewer has been included in the operating system, users will be able to view the readme file which comprises of usage tips, license agreement details and a couple of extra specifications for operating this font manage under the Windows Vista OS.
Clean, but not overly impressive, the interface of AMP Font Viewer is split into 2 sub-windows. On the left side of the screen users will be able to view the list of fonts that are currently installed on their machine, whereas on the right side an example of what the font looks like will be displayed. It is important to note that this view mode can be switched to a full-screen display mode in which the fonts are listed using the form of characters proprietary to them by pressing F2 or via the “view submenu” in the upper part of the screen.
However, the interchange window mode presents more benefits, as users will be able to adjust the size of the character, make it bold, italic or change the colors. On the other hand, in the category view mode, the font variations are listed under their original one. As a side note, clicking on the tab next to “installed fonts” above the left subsection of the screen will bring up a browse window which allows searching for fonts that have not been installed on your current drives.
Amongst the many advantages AMP Font Viewer holds over similar software is the compatibility with both the TrueType and OpenType fonts, which recommends this application for users with different word processor preferences. In addition, this utility is also compatible with the Type1 fonts. Futhermore, in case a certain font is only required provisionally, AMP Font Viewer allows users to keep it installed only until the application has been shut down. Font management is not the only subject AMP Font Viewer excels at, as this software utility also permits you to print, delete or install different fonts from specified locations in addition to viewing them. In addition, AMP Font Viewer has been designed for a Spanish view mode as well as English.
The limitations of AMP Font Viewer do not come so much from the application itself, but rather the older Windows operating systems that do not support certain features. At the same time, the NT platform Windows OS requires users to log on with an account that holds administrator rights in order to take advantage of everything AMP Font Viewer has to offer.
AMP Font Viewer is amongst the very best applications for organizing fonts and manipulating them in a seamless manner. This application is lightweight and freeware, so any user that operates with word processors on a daily basis should definitely install it on their computer. Although it is currently designed only for English and Spanish characters, AMP Font Viewer is an excellent way to get an idea about the best font for a certain document.
