Preview All Fonts in Silhouette Studio Easily, Quickly and for Free

I'm so guilty....totally guilty of having a handful of go-to fonts that I almost always use.  I have one or two script fonts, a few serif and sans serif I know I like...and depending on the project I pick my favorite among the favorites. My other fonts must feel so lonely.  If only there was a way to preview all my fonts in Silhouette Studio at the same time...so I didn't have to scroll through every single font
for every single line of text on every single project.

Oh but there is!

Recently though I've had a few Silhouette School readers emailing me like, "Melissa, you have to try this awesome free online tool that lets you preview all your fonts on your computer at.the.same.time."  Since all fonts downloaded and installed on your computer are also in your Silhouette font list that means with Wordmark.it you're literally previewing all fonts in Silhouette Studio!

Mind blown yet? Just wait 'til I show you how easy it is to use!

Go to Wordmark.it.  You should see this...

In the little box at the top (it says 'wordmark' in it to start) type in the text you want to preview.



Click 'Return'.

BAM!

Under each preview is the name of the font...once you scroll through and find the one you like, just remember the name.

Go back into Silhouette Studio, type out your text in a new text box.

Click the Text Style icon along the top tool bar.  In the window that pops ups, type in the font name to select your favorite font.

  3. I wish I could come through the computer screen and KISS YOU right now for sharing this amazing tip!! I can't tell you how many times I've sat there and individually clicked through each font trying to see how it will look. Every time I do do it, I sit there and think to myself, surely some day Silhouette School will have a tutorial for an easier way to do it!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  14. Sadly, Wordmarkit will not run on my PC running Windows 7 and IE 11. The page just freezes up. But I found a similar program to download for free called Nexus Font. http://nexusfont.en.softonic.com/

    1. Nexus Font is awesome!! You can also view the fonts you don't have installed on you computer, if you have them unzipped to a folder. I LOVE me some fonts & LOVE being able to see them all. And you can tag them so you can look at just the script fonts or just the curly fonts.

  15. Love this site, thanks for sharing. I also learned that if you are trying to decide between a few fonts, you can click on the fonts in Wordmarkit (puts a green box around them) and then select filter. It will then display just the handful of fonts you selected side by side to help you narrow down to your favorite.

  16. Oh my goodness, This is just the coolest tip ever. Now, if I can just remember to use it. I wonder if you can pin it to your tool bar so it is always there.

  18. Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! There are so many fonts that don't show up on the list the way they look so this is sooo helpful! Thank you, I am typing in a word and then printing all the pages of fonts so I will have them to look at on paper!

  21. Thanks for the reminder about AMP Font Viewer! I used to have it installed on an older computer that crashed a couple of years ago & I kept trying to find those features on my current laptop, to no avail! I've reinstalled it & am SOOO very happy to be using my many "non-installed fonts" folders again! - Thanks for the blog post & for sharing beemama's tip!

  22. Yes this is an awesome tip. Thank you so much, this has been such a hindrance for me when selecting a font using the Silhouette software You are the best.

  23. Also...if you are ever on dafont.com looking for free fonts for something specific, select any font or theme and there is a custom preview entry box...put something in there once and it will remain what shows up for each font on the screen as you search the site's fonts. (it's not on the homepage though, you have to select a font or a theme to find the custom preview field)

  24. I tried wordmark.it and found that many of my fonts, mainly the ones I had added, did not show up. After reading details on the page, I found out some may not be displayed in certain browsers. I found an application that you can download that will truly show you all the fonts...here is the link to the article where I found it: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/simplest-way-preview-all-your-installed-fonts.htm .

  26. How does it access the fonts on your computer? Is it possibly allowing any other info on your computer to be searched? Amazing if totally secure, just always leary when online is accessing hard drive.

  28. You can also PRINT your fonts out so you don't have to look at them on your computer.

Thanks for leaving a comment! We get several hundred comments a day. While we appreciate every single one of them it's nearly impossible to respond back to all of them, all the time. So... if you could help me by treating these comments like a forum where readers help readers.

In addition, don't forget to look for specific answers by using the Search Box on the blog. If you're still not having any luck, feel free to email me with your question.
