Looking for a new font for your syllabus? Tired of Times New Roman?
This is a practical and simple idea. The website Flipping Typical identifies 60 fonts on your computer and displays them all at once. Type in whatever you’d like to see and that text will be displayed in those fonts. Want to see it in bold or italics? Highlight the text, then CTRL-B for bold and CTRL-I for italics.
If you want to change the font at the top of the screen, either click on the font you want from the list below or click in the black box and type in the font of interest.
The site doesn’t bring in all of your fonts; I don’t know how it selects the ones it does. However, if you type a font you have in the black bar, it will add it to your default list. The next time you visit the site, that font will appear in your list of fonts.
Clicking “A-Z” on the far left of the black bar will order your fonts alphabetically.
And that’s all there is to it. Amazingly simple.
