How to salvage OS X when fonts go awry
Authored by: ManxStef on Mar 31, '06 11:57:06AM

Seconded. I've been using FontExplorer X to manage my type collection a few months now and it's great.

I've used the "Clean System Fonts" along with clearing out the caches on a couple of different Macs and it's really handy, allows for better organisation without hosing the default system fonts (it also won't let you delete or de-activate them). It's also got a "Clean application font caches..." option which'll clear out the Photoshop/Illustrator/Quark/MSOffice caches just in case cleaning the system ones doesn't fix the issue.

The plugins (with auto-activation turned on) can be a little quirky -- I've had a few problems with the Quark one -- but overall I'd definitely recommend it. Oh, and the price isn't bad, either :)
