Select all in Suitcase's Manage System Fonts Window Apps
For years, when setting up Suitcase on many a Mac, I've been taking forever, clicking on the checkbox next to each individual font in Suitcase's Manage System Fonts window -- all the while cursing that there is no Select All option (say, as the header for the checkbox column).

Well, today I was about to begin this laborious task once more when something came over me. The temperature in the room dropped dramatically, my eyes got hazy, and my left hand -- under no control of mine -- slapped Command-A! And there it was: the entire column of checkboxes smothered in little check-marks. Raskin? Is that you?

After using Suitcase for over 15 years, I switched to Linotype FontExplorer X about a month ago. It's very much like iTunes. If you have a ton of fonts, the drag and drop "playlists and "smartlists" work incredibly well. Unlike Suitcase, it's being actively developed, and it's free.

Since version X!

I've been using cmd-A on Suitcase since version X.
Just assumed that everyone tried cmd-A anytime there was an annoyingly large number of items to select... didn't think it was a hint or I would have posted it sooner!

Glad that the word is out.
