FontShop Friday Five: Try It Out!


We know you’re busy and the Internet is a crowded place, so we’ll try to give you a little reminder on Fridays of what’s going on out there. Below please find five recent FontShop-related threads that you may have missed.


Let’s Have Some Fun

Time to have some fun while playing with the new Tryout feature on! It’s only a beta version, but you already can do much more than test-drive webfonts in real time. You can also create whole layouts and collaborate freely with anyone on your artwork.
Currently, this feature only works with fonts that are available in webfont format.
