If you want to express a particular feeling through your choice of display font, it’s often difficult to find the right font to convey that feeling. Corel’s font manager (starting with Corel X8) allows you to type in a phrase such as, “Eat at Joe’s,” and view that phrase in all or any of the fonts you have available, and it’s not always easy to find that right font. That’s why there are thousands to choose from. However, they all do not need to be installed on your computer. On the one hand, doing so is convenient, but on the other, it can lead to the problems previously discussed.
