i'm just doing a bit of research into what people are using for font management?
(for a new Imac osx mountain Lion).
Suitcase? Font explorer?
what is best?
thanks in advance.
I use FontExplorer.
It takes a while to get used to it's organisation and there are lots of settings you can tweak. It's also good at weeding out all non-system fonts, so ideally you end up with your basic system fonts, and then another folder which FontExplorer has full control over.
^ agreed - font explorer is probably best I've used...
I use Suitcase at home, Font Explorer at work. Prefer Suitcase
I wish Fontcase was a little more robust:
Instead, I'm cornered into using FontExplorer X Pro:
After years of issues with Suitcase Fusion 4, which I will not reference images nor links due to the countless time spent repairing "database errors" over the past months/years...
I like font explorer—have been using it since its release for work, suitcase prior to that.
Font Explorer all the way. Works great.
Does anyone have issues with fonts in Chrome while using Font Explorer? I've read how using any third party font manager messes up fonts in Chrome.
^ sometimes yes, but chrome is known to have font/cache issues and I generally avoid it now and continue to use FontExplorer
Geez, i use Font Book. Is that wrong?
The chrome issue comes and goes depending upon what the Chrome dev team implements.
Suitcase Fusion has more tools integrated directly into Creative Suite app panels. Let me know if you have questions about it.
Thanks for the info people.
+1 for Font Explorer. Tried 'em all and easily the most preferred.
@CyBrainX I did have some issues using it with Chrome - pages would often appear in the Last Resort font. Although since the most recent updates to FontEx Pro and Chrome, it's not been happening.
When you're using fontexplorer, you can import all google fonts at once for free!
we use FontAgent Pro
I have problems with chrome
Font Book and Adobe CC Type Kit.
In a studio the best we encountered was Universal Type Client. Rarely any errors unless the physical connection to the server was interrupted.
