Choosing the right font for a project is essential when it comes to its presentation. We’ve all seen those cheesy used car commercials using a messy font like “Sand”. Don’t let that happen to you! Take control of your font collection. In the old days, before Font Pilot, you’d be stuck manually installing one font at a time and relaunching your programs until you found the one you liked. Not anymore!

Using its superior font management engine, Font Pilot plunges into your system and digs up the dirt on your fonts. Copyrights, licenses, descriptions, postscript names, file sizes, locations, and so much more! However, Font Pilot would have hardly graduated flight school if it didn’t go above and beyond its other classmates.

Font Pilot allows you to browse an entire folder of fonts that are NOT installed with a visual preview! While viewing the slideshow, click the Install button at any time to have that font permanently installed and activated on the computer. No fuss, no gimmicks, just pure functionality. Also activate (without installing) fonts on the fly!

Amongst these great features, and numerous others like the character map, key combo list, and print engine. Font Pilot is an essential font management software tool in any graphic designer’s repertoire. Give it the free fourteen day trial, and we’re sure you’ll find it hard to let go!
