Brief review

MainType has the reputation of being one of the easiest font management tools to use. This reputation is well deserved. From the moment you download MainType (easy and clean download) to the moment you search for your first font, you’ll see why the minimalist interface just works.


This program comes with some very easy to understand dropdown menus, a great search feature, and a very handy Help file. When tested, MainType was one of the few programs that could be picked up from the start. But, just in case, MainType’s Help file is really extensive and answers most basic questions.

Main Function

MainType is a font manager, but it’s also one of the easiest to use font managers on the market. This program categorizes fonts according to name, type, or other specifications. Searching through thousands of fonts is simple with the handy search tool and MainType really does manage fonts better than most other programs tested.

Extra Features

The Network Drive feature that is included in this program will make finding fonts that are stored on network devices a cinch. Another great aspect of this tool is that MainType supports a number of popular font types from TrueType to PostScript fonts.


Easily one of the best font managers out there, $99 is not a high price to pay for MainType if you have a lot of fonts to store and manage. Designers and those who love to collect fonts will get the most use out of this program.
