Font Organization Software

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm the studio manager for a formerly-small design firm. We were bought out a little while ago, and we just received all the fonts from our parent company so we can help produce some of their materials. We're talking about A LOT of fonts, and they're a mess. I'm trying to organize them and eliminate duplicates. I've tried using FontExplorer and Suitcase Fusion, but they both choke on the number of fonts. Is there another application someone would recommend?

Font Book doesn't do what you want?

There's a list here but the ones you tried come at the top:

Are you sure it's a software issue and not a hardware issue? You might need more RAM or an SSD. If a program has to access a lot of small files like font files, it's limited by the random read speed of the drive. You can see random read speeds of hard drives vs SSD here:

When you run the font software, first check the Activity Monitor to see if you are running out of RAM. If so, put in more RAM. If that isn't the problem or it doesn't resolve the problem entirely, consider putting in an SSD.

I looked at that list and am going to try the other applications. Thanks.
