Problems with Windows 10 64-bit

about NexusFont Jun 2016

Several key menu items (icons, commands) gave no response when I clicked on them.
Tried it with Administrator privileges, still not working.
Disappointed because it looks like a great app :(

I was using "Advanced Font Viewer" démo version, as it is fast and packed with functions.
I'm now looking for a free alternative like 'Advanced Font Viewer' (it is not on alternativeto, for the moment;P).

"NexusFont" interface is really attractive, and I have 784 installed fonts, even I did not wait 5 seconds for loading all!

It is possible to create groups, these are folders, we can then place the font according to our choice (personally I have created 4 groups: classical, Graffiti, Calligraphy, Special).

I'm still testing but its seems promising!
A good small tool which will serve me long.

Too bad the last update date since 2012 :(
But the functionality is there, it's perfect.

Great font manager

I've tested it on my old Windows 7 (64-bit, if it does matter) and it worked really well. It's fast, stable, has a beautiful interface and a good number of features.
