Most of them are available by subscription

But some are free.

For example:

  • fontba.se (Mac, Windows, Linux)
  • High-Logic MainType (Windows)

And if you're on Mac, there's one built-in, I think.

Font Book.app

It does almost all of what I want from font managers. Having said that I don't have that many third party fonts installed, dozens instead of the thousands from back in the day.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7 
Affinity Designer 2.2.0 | Affinity Photo 2.2.0 | Affinity Publisher 2.2.0 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

As a Mac user I think there are some good options already available at reasonably low prices (or even free) that have a standalone one-off purchase price (or alongside subscription plans).

  1. Typeface
  2. RightFont
  3. FontAgent

Whilst there are other options available, the feature-rich are subscription-based ones whilst the free alternatives are somewhat limited or 'feature-light'. The three that I have listed are a decent price-to-features compromise in the perpetual license category. Personally I have been using Typeface for a number of years now (having migrated from Suitcase Fusion and Linotype FontExplorer) and think it's pretty good (for my needs).
