Yes, you should be able to specify local font names as they appear in Font Book.app. Just press enter after changing font name.

Works good for all fonts except this one called G.B.BOOT Regular. Maybe the punctuation is messing it up.

Man. I really like a tileset with Interstate.

Didn't really follow the need for this tool, always using just whatever font came with the tilesets. Ran this over Ubuntu Mono at 20pt, and am completely thrilled with the result.

(Win7 x64) Could not get this tool to work.

When attempting to load a locally installed font,

-on Firefox (54.0.1 x32): it does not detect the font, but does allow the image to be downloaded when you click the link (but you'll just get a default font, not the one specified).
-on IE (11.0.9600.18665): it detects the correct font, but when you click the download link the page just loads eternally and doesn't give you the file.

The font is called "SMW2: Yoshi's Island" and is utterly adorable. It's the font used for the JollyBastion tileset.

Thank you for creating this tool, but I am sad that it isn't working for me. :( I don't have Chrome.

Try again now in FF. First set the font name, it won't appear straight away, change font size or press any button to update preview.

Oh! You absolute star, whatever you did fixed the issue. It worked. Thank you so much! :D
