FontExpert 2021 Font Manager enables you to preview and manage both installed and uninstalled typefaces, plus examine your system for font errors. You can display the list of installed font faces, customizable font samples and advanced font properties. The program allows you to print different types of reports, and offers many printing options.
FontExpert 2021 lets you explore folders and preview uninstalled fonts located on your compact disks or DVDs, local disks, removable disks or network drives. You can preview the font as a paragraph of text or as a detailed character map. It is easy to choose the desired font size, font style or color.
FontExpert 2021 automatically detects corrupted and incomplete fonts, and allows you to search for and manage duplicate fonts. It is easy to manage any typefaces that are shown in any view of the program. You can sort, filter, preview fonts, copy, move, delete font files, activate or deactivate fonts, add or link fonts to font groups (sets).
FontExpert can control fonts located in the Windows Fonts and Psfonts folder (used by Adobe Type Manager). So you don’t need to remove fonts from standard folders as some font managers require.
