One day I got very sick of maintaining samples of my 300 fonts by hand.
So I wrote this. I'm anticipating great rewards when it comes time to
pick the perfect font for the titles in my next iMovie.
The document this program produces is a plain old Rich Text document
full of all your fonts. Save it, print it, or just gaze at it
rapturously. Whatever. The possibilities are undoubtedly endless.
Hopefully FontDoc will be rendered obsolete by something in a future
version of Font Book. Until then, it's yours, dear denizens of Macdom.

|Report problems: Corrupted fonts may
crash the Apple code upon which FontDoc relies. If you are experiencing

to fix problems, but I can only do that if you tell me about them.
