Hey everyone,

I'm looking for an application or some sort of way that I can type a line of text, and then see it in multiple fonts that I have on my computer. It's a pain constantly changing them to see what I like best. Would love a way to type a phrase and then have it repeated or whatnot using a bunch of different fonts. Does anyone know of an application or way to do this?
QUOTE Thanks

You can use the Font Book to look through all the fonts, in Spotlight search for "Font Book"

Font Book should be in your Applications Folder.
