  1. This looked like the very answer I needed…
    However, this info was last “updated” in 2014 – FIVE years ago.
    Computer apps seem to have changed a little since then !!
    The menus in my “Finder” were not the same, and when I search my El Capital by entering “Font Book” in the search mechanism behind he magnifying glass icon in the up right corner of my desktop, I was taken to my Mac dictionary which gave a brief description of pretty much the very app of font samples that you described.
    But with not samples what-so-ever.
