Help : Previewing Fonts

The Veer web site allows you to try any font before you buy, using Flont™. You can also see the font’s characters.

Veer’s font preview tools are supported by all modern web browsers, including Safari and Firefox. They even work well in Internet Explorer. If you’re using an older browser, some of the functionality in these tools may be limited.

See: Site Requirements

The tabs on each font detail page (e.g. Brownstone) allow you to find out more about the font and try it out.

About

Click the “About” tab to read a description of the font and find out information about the designer. Click “See all fonts in this collection” to view full font collections.

Characters

Click the “Characters” tab to get bigger previews of individual characters. Move your cursor over the characters you want to see. Your cursor changes to a small box, with a larger box showing a magnified view of the character.

Trying OpenType fonts

You can preview any characters that are accessible using the keyboard. OpenType fonts with advanced typographic features and expanded character sets can previewed using Flont, but not all alternates, ligatures, or special characters will be available.
