The software can seach a hard drive for fonts to activate and print, or export as a PDF. It has three customizable layout templates for creating spec sheets or an entire type catalog. FontVista 4.0 also includes a slideshow tool for previewing fonts.
It is compatible with Macintosh PostScript Type 1, Macintosh TrueType suitcases, Apple dfont, PC TrueType and OpenType fonts.
