    Dear folks,

    I used to make a lot of posters and flyers for a nonprofit theater group. I'm going to be doing some more for them, but, meanwhile, I've migrated to Windows 7 on a new machine. I used to use Font Fitting Room, but I would like to try something different this time. It was an OK program, but I'd prefer something with a different interface that allows me to weed out duplicate fonts and is a little less buggy.

    Also, I need to figure out where the fonts are hiding in Windows 7!

    I will need to find & download a lot of fonts that work on Win7, and use some kind of font manager that lets me preview and compare them so that I can make aesthetic choices.

    Any suggestions out there? Thanks!

    Dang, I made the "where" part way too hard. C/Windows/fonts, no problem. But, I'm still looking for that good font program.

    Peter, this looks like a program that should do what I'm looking for. I'll download the trial version and give it a whirl.

    Thanks so much for the links.
