What is the Latest ShowFont Version?

ShowFont v1.20 - an Updated release.

What Does ShowFont Do?

ShowFont Windows Font Lister is a utility designed to list the fonts available on your system, show some of the characteristic properties of each font, and display a text sample - or ASCII character table - for the font.

What Information Does ShowFont Provide?

ShowFont provides more detailed information on fonts than conventional font display programs - or the Windows' Fonts applet. This detail includes:

  • Style - Weight & Orientation (Regular, Italic, Bold, etc.)
  • Size - Both Points and Pixel Size (Width x Height)
  • Character Set (ANSI, OEM, SYMBOL, etc.)
  • Pitch (Fixed or Proportional)
  • Type (Raster or Scalable)
  • Family (Modern, Swiss, etc.)
  • Face Name (which is often very different from the File name)
  • Display Name (which often contains more information than the Face name)
  • File Name (as recorded in the Windows' Registry)

ShowFont also allows you to:

  • Resize and reposition the dialog - even on multi-monitor systems.
  • Show just Monospaced (Fixed pitch) or Variable pitch fonts
  • Show just Raster (bitmapped) or Scalable fonts
  • Show some sample text - or an ASCII character table, and edit the sample text.

ShowFont automatically saves your settings and preferences and restores them when run again.
