I used it for a couple of days and found that it didn't activate all the fonts I needed. I really like it and wanted to use it... but now that I'm using Adium as my chat app of choice, I'm having no noticeable Suitcase problems...<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>I used it for a couple of days and found that it didn't activate all the fonts I needed<p><hr></blockquote><p>That has been the case for every font manager I have ever tried. I always end up running into some stubborn font that either conflicts with another font ...or something else causes it to screw up. If it auto-activates 95% of the fonts that is perfectly fine with me! <br><br>

Yeah, I understand it's still not a perfect process, but at the same time a program shouldn't de-activate every font in the file when you manually activate a duplicate! That's what Linotype was doing for me...<br><br><br><br>

I don't know what it is - maybe a preference you can set - but FAP seems to jive pretty well with dupes. That's why I continue to use it - I get so many fonts sent with projects from freelance designers, not to mention the library I have in-house, that any other program seems to self-destuct...<br><br><br><br><br>
Well where I work we do pretty much everything in house so we don't have to worry about other peoples versions of the same fonts. We all use the same font library so I shouldn't run into that problem. <br><br>
Font management in OSX is still frustrating, no matter what app you use. Most often I find that apps like Suitcase, Fusion and FAP all try to do too many things. I just want it to activate the font when an app calls for it. <ol> [*]I don't care if it's a duplicate </li> [*]I don't care if they *think* it's corrupt </li> [*]I don't want it organized </li> [*]I don't want it categorized </li> [*]I don't want it keyworded </li> [*]I don't want it previewed in my font list </li> [*]I don't want it protected in a vault or database </li> [/LIST] [color:"#cc0000" size="6"]I JUST WANT THE F#CKING FONT ACTIVATED!</font> <br><br>

Couldn't have said it better myself. <br><br>So how often do you run into font activation problems with FE? Any funkiness with it saying the font is open but it not showing up in the apps? I hate having to restart apps to get friggin fonts to show up ...sometimes restart the whole damn machine...<br><br>
