  • Posted to RightFont 2 - The Future of Font Manager, Oct 27, 2015

    So far, I love RightFont 2. It's almost everything that I've ever wanted in a font manager. Hoping that development continues and they don't go defunct like the Bohemian one did.

    This said, I hit a little bit of a hiccup in my workflow with RF2. 1. There seems to be no way to view a glyph list or alphabet view (like in the native font app), which can be useful when browsing through and comparing fonts. Normally this wouldn't be too big of an issue as I'm okay opening up Font Book.app when I do need this feature, but any fonts installed via RF2 won't show up in Font Book.

    1. I can't see any way to view font metadata in the app

    Has anyone had this experience? If so any solutions?

    Niice doesn't work for me - super slow searching.

    Dragdis is incredibly appealing but only works with Chrome

    Pixa is too outdated and feature heavy for simple inspiration and mood boards

    Pixave is nice-looking, but too feature heavy for simple inspiration and mood boards

    What I REALLY want is something with the simplicity of Inboard, with Pixa's Smart Folder feature so I can run it on top of a dropbox folder that is mounted via Expandrive.

    For now, going with Inboard and the trying a reverse version of the cloud workaround described here. Will update with my experience in a couple of weeks: http://www.jordanisip.com/config?frameUrl=/journal/2015/2/11/how-to-backup-inboard-with-dropbox
