Hello guys, one common problem that arise often is finding what fonts you might have installed on your system that an OpenType feature you might want to use.
For example, you might want to use the "fraction" feature but you don't know what fonts you might have that supports it.
We have not addressed this use case yet in CorelDRAW but FontTesterPlus allows you to do this. Here is how :
1) Install it from here http://coreldraw.com/media/g/claudep/default.aspx
2) Expand the "Filters" section and pick the OpenType feature you are interested in, in this example : frac
3) You can type some test string in the Sample Text window to see the effect that this feature will have on your string with the selected font :
In this example, "Palatino Linotype" is doing an awesome job at supporting every possibilities.
But if you try that with different fonts, you will quickly realize that the results can vary very much :
Minion Pro only support some standard fraction while Moonglow Ext supports even fewer standard fractions.
FontTesterPlus is an easy way to sort this out and allow you to quickly hand pick the best font for your project.
