Windows Process Description:

The fontnav.exe application is the main program file of the Bitstream Font Navigator software. Earlier versions of Font Navigator supports the Windows 9x/2000/NT/XP and dual operating systems. It was originally developed and distributed by the Bitstream Company up until version 4.0. After version 4.0, Bitstream discontinued the production and development of the fontnav.exe application. Fortunately, a global media and graphics software company called Corel decided to buy the process fontnav.exe from Bitstream and have continued its development since then. Hence, Font Navigator 5 is now an additional utility of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 (version 13) software.

The file fontnav.exe is a font management program that allows users to speedily locate fonts in computer network systems. These fonts may be selected and added to the Font Catalog component of the fontnav.exe application window. Once all fonts are added to the Font Catalog, the fontnav.exe process displays all available fonts in a single list for quick user access. Upon execution, the program file fontnav.exe opens up a window that enables users to easily sort out different fonts in certain groups for immediate viewing and printing. The fontnav.exe process also allows users to install and uninstall different fonts without difficulty using its drag and drop feature.

By itself, the fontnav.exe file occupies only 700KB of disk storage space and does not need a powerful computer system to operate. However, since the process fontnav.exe version 5.0 is only a utility of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, Font Navigator 5.0 users must download the entire package of CorelDraw to access the application fontnav.exe. This 200MB packaged software requires at least a 600MHz processor preferably Pentium III or higher. The entire package including the fontnav.exe process is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista that operates with a RAM size of 256MB or better and a minimum of 1024x768 monitor resolutions. The enhanced capability of the program file fontnave.exe version 5.0 allows it to support True Type, Open Type and 1 and 3 Postscript Type of fonts.
