Need a more crisp preview of the font sample.
Even in the "High Quality Display" mode in InDesign 5.5 the sample font preview is bitmapped. This plugin would not help as it is now.
After clicking "Try", there is no way to go back and undo action or change font size. Generated previews are too pixelated for use in any real-world scenario. I couldn't possibly show this to a client.
Due to the low resolution of the font representation, it's hard to determine the font's appropriateness for many applications. If it was a higher clarity, it would be a nice tool.
High resolution previews is a great suggestion. One tip in the meantime: make sure you’re viewing at 100%. Viewing at smaller or larger sizes will distort the output.
In 100% a 10 or 12 pt font is not really a thing that helps to form an opion. So I am with Larry Talor, the review has to be better. It would be great also, when the plugin could show more than a few lines. Because a big problem to gauge font is when I need the font for a long text like a novel. So it would be great, if it would be possible, to see one page with that font to see its kerning.
To revert the sample back to text, right click on it and select 'restore text frame.' We've received several requests to bring this feature into the FontGazer UI. We've also received requests to offer high res previews. In the meantime, make sure you're viewing at 'Actual Size.' This will give you a crisp preview.
