App like MacFont for OS X? Drag and drop font viewer?
0

I used MacFont in OS 9. To view an uninstalled font, I just had to drag it to MacFont’s icon. I am looking for a similar app for OS X. A drag and drop font viewer — nothing more, nothing less. Anyone know of any?

download the pdf “Using and Managing Fonts in Mac OS X ” page 5.
Suitcase 10.1.3 in OSX allows you to preview a font without activating it.

I think Panther (the next version of OS X, to be released soon) has that function built in to its Font Book utility.
