    Default Not all fonts with TTF plugin?

    Hi!
    Why is it, that Irfanview does not properly display all ttf Fonts? Some of them are just displayed as normal Times or something... Working them in the windows fontview.exe works fine, so the font itself is not broken.
    Sadly, fontview.exe does not allow to browse through a folder or change the preview text, so i would prefer using irfanview...
    Any ideas?

    Which fonts don't display? The ones that I looked at all displayed OK.

    Irfan View's plugin is a very limited font viewer. Try MainType. It is $49 Shareware, but I believe you can legally use it after the 30-day triial period as a free viewer.

    Some of its main features will not be available after that time, but I presume that it will still be a lot better than FontView.exe

    Here you can download two other fontviewers.
    AMP Font Viewer: http://www.ampsoft.net/
    Fontlister 2.0: http://www.theill.com/fl/download.asp
    Both are free.
    Fonts loaded in Fontlister (from other sources) can be used in Windows applications without installing them.
