But, The PC would not allow it even in Compatibility Mode.
Just opening the Font folder displays Icons of all the fonts and on each Icon is a sample of the style.
This in itself is a bit helpful,
With The Font Thing my written words were displayed repeatedly to the right of each and every Font.
Scrolling down through 1400 copies of the same word or phrase made it very easy to pick out a suitable Font and only took a couple of minutes.
I have installed Font Viewer which does allow me to type a phrase or even paragraph but I have to click onto each Font individually to see how the phrase appears.
Thee is no page full of the same phrase so I can't compare one font style with others above or below it.
I may have to accept using Font Viewer until The Font Thing offers a version for Windows 7 or I set up a cheap smaller PC and Monitor just to use it.
Thanks for the speedy replies,
