The instructions should be updated according to tikbalang's post.

Still no full unicode or UTF-8 support. Loses extended characters on editing and saving an existing file in that format.

Also, this version consistently writes an error log into its app folder on exit; the log reports some kind of memory access violation. I can't recall seeing that in previous versions, but I no longer have them and have stopped using Jarte. It's actually starting to get a bit bloated.

To each his own: while working with a portable Jarte you might find yourself running it in systems about which you know not what fonts are available, how they look, and if they support much needed glyphs (for me, diacritics and the Euro symbol, mainly). [EDIT: Fontster now has its own database entry at http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2281]

That's what my tip provides for -- if it doesn't suit you, just don't use it. One should probably not hasten to judge that our opinion applies to everyone...

Seems like its behavior depends on where you run it from
"Jarte runs in normal mode whenever it is run from the same drive on which Windows is installed or when it is run from a network drive. In all other cases (e.g., Jarte is run from a flash drive, secondary hard drive, CD, etc) Jarte runs in portable mode."
From here
If i run it from my secondary partition it creates the .ini file. If i run it from my desktop,like i did yesterday, i get %APPDATA%/Jarte folder

I liked Fonster.hta as a standalone font viewer. I just felt Fonster added more steps than it should to selecting and setting fonts. IG:Click Font, Click FontManager, Scroll to select font, select size, Close Fontster.hta, Click Font, Click Change Font, Scroll to select font, Style, select Size, click OK.

11 steps VS. 6 with very limited benefit for the extra steps, if Fonster would reset the Font that would reduce this to 5 steps.

The original comment was understood, I just felt it needed clarification.

Someone reading the original comment might think that Fonster.hta would reset fonts and font size in JARTE. It does not.

I believe a larger font display in the Change Font dialogue is a better option and I will attempt to request this feature.

Cross your fingers and hope it wont be a JARTE PLUS only feature if implemented.

@donald - I believe 'Midas' is saying to 'assign' Fonster (font viewer) to Jarte's Font Manager

@mrpink - 'I am Baas' is correct; portable.ini is created on first run.

The portable.ini file is created on first run, is it not?

@Midas Fonster is a font viewer, not a font manager.
I believe your comment was unclear on that.
