Default FontCat5.1 (Mac OS X)

FontCat is a font viewing and catalog printing application to view and print out custom specimen sheets of your fonts. These fonts do not have to be installed and can be any type supported by MacOSX.

FontCat includes a separate print layout editor to design your own specimen sheets or font catalog style from a large collection of layout field types, or use any of the supplied layouts.

You can view and print samples any font type supported by MacOSX.

  • Can you define your own text for the specimens?
  • If so, can you define specimen text in Unicode characters?
  • Does it recognize fonts of which the file names contain Unicode characters?

Default Re: FontCat questions

Can you define your own text for the specimens?

Yes, the layout editor provides inspectors that allow full editing of the text or alphabet section of layouts. I tried to make every aspect of a layout field fully editable.

If so, can you define specimen text in Unicode characters?
Does it recognize fonts of which the file names contain Unicode characters?

Yes, FontCat is fully Unicode aware as it is a Cocoa application.
