Cleaning up a messy font installation
Authored by: simonvx on Aug 18, '10 09:05:57AM

Makes me think "How many active fonts are too many?" Does it depend on CPU speed, RAM, a combination of many factors as it's often the case? I'm a graphic designer and I need tons of them, it's constantly changing... and I know, from the days with my old 8600 to my actual iMac Core i7, that those fonts can slow you down big time! I currently have 803 (!!!) and it doesn't seem so bad. Of course, each bold, thin, italics, expert, etc. counts for 1 font. My font manager of choice is Linotype FontExplorer X (yes, the discontinued free version. Still works fine under Snow Leo).
