I'm a graphic artist. I use Panther, Mac OSX 10.3, and I'd like to know how you guys using Panther (or Tiger for that matter) manage your fonts?<br><br>I have tons of fonts and have messed up system more than once! I add using FontBook, but sometimes I seem to screw up my system (not sure why that happens). The fonts go right into my permanently activated list<br><br>I'd like to know how the pros handle their font collections on any given day?<br><br>

Once you have the preferred fonts added to the new Collection, the entire Collection can be disabled and only required fonts can be enabled.<br><br>Other good font management tools include Extensis Suitcase and Font Agent Pro, the latter gaining increased popularity. Both offer automatic font activation and many more features than Apple's Font Book.<br><br>Personally, I'm pleased as punch with Font Book.<br><br>- alec
