Question:
I am trying to identify the following font but I get an empty Matching Fonts list. What am I doing wrong?


Answer:
In order to properly identify fonts you have to keep in mind that:
  • 'Find my Font' identifies fonts you have on YOUR computer. It will not identify a font if you don't have it.
  • By default (after installation) 'Find my Font' looks only at the installed fonts. If you have fonts located in other folders in your computer, you have to tell the program where you have the fonts (see the Fonts>FontSets Setup command)

Keeping the above in mind and assuming you have this font either installed or in a FontSet you created, I'll show you how I identified the font in your image:

The following is a screenshot of the steps I followed:


Here's what I did:
  1. I opened 'Find my Font' and clicked on the Open Image tool
  2. From the file list I selected your image and clicked Open
  3. Clicked on the red letter letter 'E'
  4. In the text to match field I specified which letter I selected ('E')
  5. I clicked the Match Fonts! button
  6. In less than a second I had the results shown (font Hurry Up is the best match)

    Searched 131,499 fonts, found 3 fonts in 1 second, speed ~7.6 million fonts per minute
  7. In the Text to Display field I typed the word 'DEUX' to verify the result
