How do I prevent apps (I'm looking at you, Adobe & Apple) from installing all the foreign language fonts every time I update? I don't want 'em, I don't need them, and I'm tired of having them in my font menus. mad

Also, Cocktail is a great utility app and has the option to remove languages. It's $20.00

I don't recommend doing that. Using those programs has been known to fubar the system. I also don't think it's going to solve his problem.

It also doesn't really save that much disk space. I would bet it would only trim it by 3 gigs or so.

Do you mean the Asian fonts?

Read this before messing with fonts. They have a downloadable PDF for OS X.

Yes, I meant fonts only, not the Package Resource files.
I'm kinda OCD when it comes to font management, and I like a clean machine. HD space has nothing to do with it.

So many Asian fonts are now "System" fonts, that require authorization, and it becomes a pain to get rid of them. Seems like after every update or upgrade, they are all reinstalled.

Read that Font management guide. Some of those fonts should not be removed because the system needs them to display certain characters, glyphs etc. Also if you remove the wrong fonts you can kill the system.

It puts them at the bottom of the fonts list anyway so just ignore them. smile

So using Cocktail is going to screw things up?
