There's still some good info in this thread so I'll post here:
Gizmo's Best Free Font Manager
is still there, last updated this year, still showing NexusFont on top (but note NexusFont was last updated mid 2012).
I'm prompted to post because MainType
has just released version 6.
Now has Pro & Standard versions - tbh I dont fully understand the differences (yet):Font managers reviews and opinionshttp://www.high-logi...type/comparison.html
Cost is $39/79. Upgrade from v.3 upwards is $29/39
As per email, the improvements in v.6 are:
Over the years numerous customers have asked us to provide better support for searching and categorizing their font library. Previous versions of MainType already came with several ways to group and categorize font collections, but the new font tagging functionality adds another dimension to managing your font library. It allows you to provide meaningful tags to your fonts, so you can easily find and use the right fonts for every occasion.
With font folder synchronization it is a breeze to use shared fonts on a network drive, so a team can work with exactly the same group of fonts as part of their font collection. Of course it's also possible to synchronize local font folders.
Several existing features have been improved. The backup and restore features are accessible through the Tools menu. Numerous new toolbar icons have been added, and several dialogs have been redesigned.
