- ZDNet wrote: When just any old font utility won't do, you need Typograf. This extremely well-done 32-bit app lets you preview, print, and manage TrueType and Type 1 fonts. You can use it to view font samples, whether the fonts are installed or not; sort font previews by filename, directory, font name, size, date, kerning pairs, copyright, and more; display a font's properties, including general, metric, and kerning information; and check out a typeface to see what (if any) extended characters it has. You can also use Typograf to compare fonts, print several types of sample pages, organize fonts into a database, and place fonts into groups that can be instantly activated and deactivated. If you're a real font fanatic, you'll appreciate the excellent typeface tutorial in the Help file, complete with a typeface history. Other features include the ability to search for duplicates; shortcuts to Control Panel, Adobe Type Manager (if installed), and the Registry Editor; and the ability to see the keyboard layout of each font. Two sample TrueType fonts are included. Typograf is one of the best font utilities we've seen, commercial or shareware.
- THE GREAT SOFTWARE LIST wrote: The most complete font manager software available, period. You can manage, add, delete, rename, view, compare, uninstall, and more. And that's just for starters. Typograf not only provides a classification and history of various typefaces according to the Association Typographique Internationale, but document design and typesetting tips, along with over 20 font-related websites and newsgroups addresses. In other words, Typograf covers all the bases. If your work demands a variety of fonts or requires frequent font substitutions among your files, then TypoGraf will simplify your life. Most of all, Typograf is fast, responsive, and flexible, showing your fonts in a wide variety of ways and comparisons that will have you slapping the side of your head and saying, "That's exactly what I was looking for!"
- Point Central wrote: Typograf is not only one of the few font managers avaliable for PC-based people, but it is also one of the very best, either commercial or freeware. Because most graphists or graphic design professionnals are Mac-based, very few high quality font tools are avaliable for PC. But Typograf is bound to change that: it got all the features you can requires, and is very unexpensive! Typograf can load and unload fonts with few clicks, gather them in sets, preview and print them whether they are loaded or not, and display lots of usefull informations about them (metrics, kerning, author, etc...) And if this is not enough for you, you'll probably appreciate the fact that Typograf can search for duplicates, and offers a very well done Typography tutorial, and comes with two True type fonts for a starter! Working on windows 95, 98 an NT, this small soft is a very clever one, and features all the functions of the big ones from Adobe et al. The only one missing is the one that recently appeared on its competitors that allows you to repair corrupted fonts; but this is probably only a question of time before Typograf includes such a feature... And knowing how deceptive is the PC version of ATM deluxe there no question about knowing wehther we should recommend this one to all Windows users! Note that Typograf deals with both true type and Type 1 fonts, but that you need to have ATM installed to use the later ones. Definitely a must.
