Font Manager is not intended to be a professional-grade font management solution, but rather a simple application suitable for the needs of most desktop users, and even some graphics designers who may need to manage just a few thousand font files.
Although designed with the GNOME desktop environment in mind, it should work well with most major desktop environments such as Xfce, Enlightenment, and even KDE.
Font Manager currently allows the user to:
Preview installed fonts
Compare installed fonts
Easily install or remove fonts
Easily activate and de-activate installed fonts
Specify different directories to search for fonts
Group fonts into "Collections", and easily activate or de-activate groups of fonts
Export "Collections" to an archive for easy backup, sharing, etc.
Provides quick access to the users font folder, GNOME font settings, Character Map, etc.
In the future Font Manager intends to allow the user to:
Export "Collections" to a PDF "fontbook" (partially implemented)
Edit font metadata
Convert fonts to a different format
Use Patent Claims
Include Install Instructions
