    Hello Folks.
    Does anyone remember a Font Finding program that used an image of the Font
    you wanted?
    You would use a scanned image or a particular letter from the fonts, which
    you saved to a file.
    The file was then transferred to the program which then checked through the
    fonts on your computer,
    or a CD/DVD of fonts, comparing all fonts to the image file.
    The program used various controls to find the fonts; how fast the program
    took to search,
    the accuracy of the search etc.
    You were then presented with a list of fonts that were similar to the one
    you wanted.
    I had this program some time ago and I'm now looking for it again.
    Can anyone help me out?
    Thanx in advance.
