New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I 'd like to thank you all for your valuable feedback on the initial presentation of Find my Font, about 3 month ago here:
In fact, many of the features added in our new release 2.3.01, are based in your comments and much more of your comments are also carefully examined and prioritized for a future release. Many thanks for that!
So, what's new in Find my Font v2.3.01?
1. Minor improvements on Font Image Identification & UI
(a) Improvement in font matching speed
(b) Matching list shows more similar fonts
(c) Added Horizontal & Vertical splitters to the 4 main screen areas
(d) Added context sensitive menu (right click) on all font lists to:
Open / Locate font file / Install font / Browse for Specific Family / Copy font name / Copy font path
(e) More accurate remaining time estimate
(f) Added font's copyright info in font details area
(g) Fixed screen capture bug on Mac OS/X Lion
(h) Made Splitter tool Sticky, to perform multiple cuts
2. New feature: Browse fonts by Visual Similarity
Apart from Find my Font main functionality -to identify fonts in images- many of you have said that "it's a unique & different way to browse your font collection", therefore I think you will love this new feature.
You may now browse for fonts on your computer by typing a part of a font's name.
The program displays a list with fonts that contain that word in their family name or font style. You can then render a custom text preview using any of the browsed fonts.
The good news is, the font-matching button is still active:
This way you can find fonts that are visually similar to the browsed font, according to the letters you specify!
We think this as an important and invaluable feature for Font Designers, Graphic Designers and Type Enthusiasts.
As always, you can compare the different editions and download a 30-days free trial on this page: Find my Font Editions Comparison
All typophile users already having a promo-code/license can download Find my Font Pro v2.3.01 by going to the following page and entering your license number: Members - Update (to latest version)
I will be really glad to read your comments/critique about the new features and especially the "Browse Font by Visual Similarity" functionality.
Thank you again for your time,
and your valuable feedback.
