Downloads

FindFont V4.00  14-Dec-2011

The program is free, but if you pass it on, please keep the package intact.

Installing

There is no 'installation' - the downloadable file is the main executable you run, so download & save it to a folder of your choice, e.g. C:\Utils
There are several options when running the utility so nothing will happen if you just double-click it - it needs to be run from a command window. Starting one of these varies according to your version of Windows; some examples are:-
In the command window, navigate to the folder containing the exe file, e.g.
c:
cd \Utils

Run the utility by typing:
findfont

This will display various options & examples. Contact me if you have any problems.

Uninstalling

Just delete the executable file you downloaded.
