A related question:
Can anybody recommend a (preferably freeware) font-manager for Windows? I have a lot of fonts installed that I hardly ever use, by moving those outside of the Windows\Fonts directory I can save some time starting up Illy. Easy enough to do manually, but I was wondering if there's anyting out there that can make it easier.
I like The Font Thing Is that what you are looking for?
Only seems to manage True Type fonts. Most of what I've read still points to Adobe ATM deluxe as the best choice here, even tho its not continued by Adobe. Linotype released the free Font Explorer X for the mac which I've heard a lot of people rate and is prob a good thing it's by a type foundry and they did have something on there page about a PC version in the future but haven't heard anything else about it.
Well I guess that's not much much help in hindsight...I have heard people say Typograph (freeware) is a good choice but can't recomend myself as I haven't used, looks like it has some good font management tools. Can store all the fonts in it's own database, what cd they are on etc...
Let us know what you find Hans.
