The thing I’m finding frustrating about all the fontviewers I have is that the features are not always fully explained, and when there is a screenshot, that’s all there is – one screenshot.
On Windows I use Free and East Fontviewer. In addition to listing all your installed fonts, you can get a full character map from which you can copy individual characters or symbols. This is very important for symbol fonts. I can copy the symbol and want and paste in into my document. Your single screen capture doesn’t indicate that you can get a character map.
