This tool can be used to visually see all the fonts available on a computer system. It helps you to select a font for your GUI. More important, if you are programming GUI in MATLAB 6.0 and 6.5 using its GUI development tool GUIDE and having problems with font, this tool can help you pick a font that works the same in GUIDE and in the running figure. This tool keeps the fonts you selected and returns them to you. If you want to replace the font in your GUI with a font in that returned list, see the help of this tool. It should work in MATLAB 6.0 and after.
