Fontmatrix is a free graphical font manager for Linux operating systems and, since recently, also for Winmdows. Mr Docs writes: One thing where Fontmatrix has the older proprietary font managers beat is the concept of tagging. This makes it really nice to group fonts and even sub-group them logically for use in say a book. It also has extensive support to give you a nice GUI to show all the glyphs in a font, previews of sample text, variable sizing and also tell you what kinds of advanced Open Type features are inside the guts of your font. That is something Ive never seen outside of a font editor. And not least, it creates a nice PDF catalog of your fonts for printing or reference. All in all, a real pros font manager, but still nice and user friendly. Another URL. Softpedia discussion.
