Font Dropper

Our friends at Extensis & WebInk have a new product you may have hear of called FontDropper 1000  – a drag & drop web font tester.

To get started:

  1. Drag a bookmarklet (like the one shown here) to your browser bookmark bar
  2. Go to a web page & open the FontDropper 1000 bookmarklet
  3. Drag-and-drop fonts from the bookmarklet onto any live text on a web page. You will see the text background highlight and then you can drop the font. The font will apply to the text and you can use the Tools tab to change font style properties.
  4. Reapply the same font to more of the page text either repeat the drag-and-drop actions or click-drag-clone the font from the previously changed text area. Just click-hold your cursor in the text area and then drag to the new text area. The font-face will be applied.

For you visual learners, you can get a better idea of how it works here.

    That isn’t a bookmarklet, it’s a png.
