      Hey Joren,

      Normally I love your tips, links and posts. However isn’t this one more of an OS X tip than a C4D one?

      Hey Gee, yes, it is a OS X tip. Too bad C4D doesn’t open up with a preview of the font by default, so this is just to be aware of a way to see it. Hopefully this will help some people out who weren’t aware of it. Cheers!

      Good tip. I use a small app called FontDoc. It allows you to input custom text in a field and then it will load all of your fonts displaying that text. It’s a great resource for previewing fonts.

      Great Tip! MAXON should implement a live preview in a future update!
