FontTesterPlus 1.1 Gives Details on Installed Fonts

Today is the day when many people in North America celebrate Mexico's victory in the Battle of Puebla. Most simply call it Cinco de Mayo though it is officially El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla. This year it also coincides the the oldest sporting event in the US. That's right, the running of the Kentucky Derby. So grab a margarita, watch the ponies and let's talk about some cool software!

As I've mentioned in previous posts, one of the biggest changes in CorelDRAW X6 is the support of OpenType fonts including all of the cool extra characters they can contain. In order to fully develop features like this, software companies often have to create software they use internally to test something. In this case, FontTesterPlus was created as a way to see all kinds of details about the fonts installed on your system. It can be downloaded for free from Claude's gallery (Claude is one of the developers for Corel). You will find multiple versions in there so make sure to download the newest version.

Above you will see a marked up screenshot of this cool utility. One note from Claude is that the current version does not work at all on Windows XP. It is also delivered as is and admittedly it is a very rough utility. It was developed by developers for developers and the user interface leaves a lot to be desired. You may also find it to be buggy and flaky. Even so, you may find it really interesting to select one of your installed fonts and see all the details about the font. Fontaholics can probably spend a lot of time just exploring the details of their fonts.
