    I have nice amount of fonts and like to keep things organized and printed out in books by the font company. I once had a App called "The Type Book" by Jim Lewis for OS9 and although it was basic, it did a great job when it came to being able to print my fonts. Whether it be by indexing or per page font sample. My question, do they have something similar for OSX and perhaps a better version of "The Type Book" for OS9 if need be?

    Any leads would help, thanks!

    i'm also looking for a way i can preview all of my fonts... so i looked 'font' up on versiontracker. here are the results.

    i haven't tried any, so i don't know what to reccommend. i guess you'd just have to try a few, and read the reviews.

    let us know if you come accross a good one. :)

    Well...Out of all those on the list, I found "FontVista 2.5" to be the best. Very easy to use and descent preset layouts. The only problem I found is that when I go to save the layout in a multiply page PDF, it seems to save it but then for some strange reason the file just vanishes! I actually see the file on my desktop but then PUFF! Very strange. No error, no nothing. Anybody got a clue? There website is pretty weak in the technical area. UNLESS you purchase it first. I'd like to but this would be a problem.
