New navigation features for Typekit

We’ve just rolled out a bunch of new features that make it easier to find and choose fonts. Now, you can switch between list and grid views, as well as different ways to sort Typekit’s library of fonts. And, best of all, you can now add your own sample text to these views — it’s a great way to compare lots of fonts at a glance. Have a look at our one-minute screencast for a quick overview on how it all works, or head over to Typekit to have a look at it now.

    Awesome, but can you please add the ability to see the font name typed as a default? It really helps for quick recognizing.

    Thanks.

    great updates! I don’t regret my subscription one bit.

  3. Jay says:

    Wow. It just keeps getting better! Keep up the great work!

    This is a really lovely change! However, the changes aren’t saved from one page to the next. Assuming this is a bug and not by design. Keep up the good work.

      Thanks for the bug report, Ben. We found an issue with the saving of these preferences for non-logged-in users, and we just rolled out a fix. Your changes should persist across page views now.

    Awesome! This is going to make choosing a typeface so much easier.

    I agree with Walter: using the font name as the default sample text would be *hugely* useful for quickly scanning a list of typefaces.

  6. Dan Butcher says:

    Excellent changes! The ability to see more fonts at once and compare custom text samples is very helpful.

  7. Those are really nice adjustments. I was just on the other night and noticed the Headline section. Thought that was informative too.

  8. Eric says:

    Yes, but what about Opera?

  9. Can you sort by most popular or not? I seem to be missing that.

    What does “featured” mean? Featured in what? How? Does that mean “most popular”?

    Thanks!

      Douglas, “featured” just means they are in the order we’ve chosen internally. We’ll be adding “most popular” soon.

  10. @ Jeffrey: Can you contact me offline? I have a question for you about most popular… douglas AT bonfx.com. I submitted a support question but haven’t heard back yet…
