The NexusFont download link http://www.portablefreeware.com/download.php?dd=731 brings you to a blocked site listed as malicious? Is this the correct download link?

I downloaded NexusFont and didn't get any warning about the website being malicious.

I also sent the ZIP file to Jotti's malware scan, and the file doesn't seem to be malicious: http://virusscan.jotti.org/en/scanresul ... 043b7286ae

Same as SYSTEM: no warnings, no infections.

I keep getting the site blocked, even with different browsers. Will need to check it on another system.

Never mind. Checked OK on Linux and on an XP PC. Must be some a setting on my PC? I only get the block for the NexusFont download link and no others. Going directly to the NexusFont site is OK.

Here is what I get:

I don't have Norton on this machine. So I am not sure why this Norton page warning is coming up. Need to investigate.

Just wanted to share that I tested the Nexus Font Viewer feature that says that "NexusFont maintains the library and your sets on the same removable device even if the drive letter for the device changes."

It does not work for me. When the drive letter changes, the fonts folder needs to be reloaded since it can't be found. :(

I found a very strong video introduction to NexusFont that I thought did an excellent job. Assuming folks here agree, what's the policy on including a video intro in the entry?

Very good video and worth watching. Lots of useful information I didn't know about NexusFont. Thanks for posting it.

I'd love to see videos/tutorials added to every entry!
I'd love to make some videos myself, but my English is poor and my head is full of random stuff, so they won't be good videos. I'll give it a try anyway (I'll start with FC XE). :)

Felt like this should be moved here instead of the comments section, seeing as it's more about what I'm looking for rather than what NexusFont is currently.
One of the more decent typeface managers but still limited for anything other than basic use. Definitely still a great addition to the database.

Features like being able to display only one font per family to organize families, supporting different formatted views (such as multi-columns, thumbnail view, etc), and inline tagging I'd love to see. Would honestly pay for a more full-featured typeface manager, as there is a lack of advanced managers for Windows.
