"Contact" Sheets To Check Metrics?

railheaddesign's picture

Hey all

I was wondering what you guys and gals use for general metrics/kerning checking.

Several years ago, I used to have several text files that I used as "contact" sheets that I'd open and change the font to check out the spacing, metrics, kerning, etc.

What do you guys (and gals) use for this -- or what "tricks" do you utilize for checking your metrics?

TIA,
Maury
