Font picker is a simple application that lets you browse the installed fonts on your computer and then narrow down that selection till you find the perfect font for your design project.
Click on the sample text to change it to your chosen text. Remove fonts you don’t like, or select the ones you do and crop to show only those fonts.
Once you’ve narrowed down your selection you can:
◆ Save your font list for later
◆ Print your font list
◆ Export as PDF
◆ Copy and paste into an application that accepts copied rich text
Alphabet shortcut keys
Ratings and Reviews
Really Helpful, but would be even better if…..
Super helpful app. Thank you for making it!!
It would be nice if we could sort the typefaces by what kind they are. For example have an option to only display SANS typefaces, or only display typefaces designed for print, etc.
Even if we had to categorize them ourselves, it would be worth it to me to spend an hour categorizing all my typefaces so that future searches can be more refined than just displaying all the hundreds of typefaces that I own haha.
Also it would be nice to see all the weights of each typeface instead of just showing the default weight. Maybe we are looking for a super bold and condensed typeface but when it only shows us the medium weight we may pass up the perfect font family because it isn’t showing the bold condensed version of the typeface, just the medium.
Thanks again for making this app! I hope to see these changes in some future version.
Simple & useful!
This app does exactly what it says. When I'm designing, I like to type in a phrase and pick the font that looks the best -- this is perfect for that. Saving the selections as a PDF is genius because I can send the PDF to clients for approval on the fonts.
The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because it would be GREAT to have a simple "Favorites" or "Favorite Sets" option. Wherein one could "Save" various sets of favorite fonts - like a "handwritten set" and an "art deco set", etc.
But overall - it's simple and fantastic!
Great idea, very poor execution
This app frequently crashes. When this happens and you relaunch it, your progress since you last saved it has been lost.
Open a saved file, and the window title is just “Font Picker” instead of the file you’ve opened. This is confusing. Save the file again, and it prompts you to give a file name and location where to save it, instead of recognizing that you’re saving a file you’ve already opened — save the same file and it will ask if you’d like to replace the old version. Of course you want to — you’re trying to save your progress. Very annoying. Mac apps should be better than this.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
