Font Mate application helps you to see how fonts look on your computer, and it also helps you find symbol characters.
Using Font Mate
There isn't much to it: Font Mate shows you a list of all the fonts installed on your computer. Choose any font from the list and it will show you what all the characters in that font look like. Choose any one of those characters and you will see an enlarged version of it at the bottom of the page (with its ASCII code in decimal and hex, should you be interested). Click the button to copy that character to the clipboard if you want to use it in another application.
We wrote Font Mate originally for Mac OS X, but we have included versions for Windows and Linux too. We wrote it using REALbasic, a great tool for cross-platform rapid development. Source is available on request.
Font Mate is freeware. Download, use, share as you wish. No warranty is offered, and we accept no liability for anything strange or nasty that it might do to your computer.
