Whether you are a web developer or graphic designer, choosing the right font for various projects is usually a vital step in the creative process. However, other than opening a text editor and manually cycling through every font installed on your Mac, there is no easy way to perform this task.
Font Picker is a simple app that seeks to provide a solution to this issue, as it makes it possible for you to view numerous fonts at the same time, using custom text, and then narrow down your list of choices until you are left with the ideal one.
Alphabet shortcut keys for simple font navigation
Unless you are fine with searching through hundreds of fonts manually, you should be pleased to discover that Font Picker displays a list of shortcuts in an additional panel.
These make it possible to select a particular font quickly, as you can view only the ones that begin with a certain letter.
Numerous fonts in multiple columns, helping you perform comparisons
Seeing as how Font Picker’s primary function is to facilitate font selection, you can take advantage of its several display modes to simplify this task.
The app can list fonts in one or more columns, based on user-defined settings. Viewing three columns at the same time, for example, can significantly reduce the time it takes to locate the ideal design.
Save or print font lists, export them to PDF files or paste text in other applications
Should you need to preserve your customized list of fonts for later use, you can save it to a project file and load it again at a later date.
Additionally, they can be printed, exported to a PDF file or inserted into applications that offer support for rich text.
Lacks customization of font size, text and background color
Given Font Picker’s intended purpose, being able to customize font and background colors while previewing the fonts can be very important for graphic designers. Unfortunately, the fact that this function is not included reduces the app’s usefulness.
In conclusion, Font Picker can be a very useful utility for graphic designers, as it enables you to quickly see how a text looks when written using multiple fonts and to select the best one for a particular project.
