Unless your name is Massimo, chances are you have more than three or four typefaces in your collection. Personally, I have always struggled to keep my font library organized. Over the years I have tried a number of software applications, but never felt completely comfortable with what I’ve used. It’s a huge investment to try out a new solution, so that typically means putting up with the bloated or sluggish software in exchange for some ‘time-saving’ features like auto-activation and font previews.
In hopes of finally discovering a better solution, I asked our Twitter followers earlier this week:
What is your favorite font management application?
Is there something better out there? It soon became apparent that I am not alone in my quest:
Post the results of that question please! We’ve been having a debate about that in my office.
Those with a favorite were largely split between Linotype FontExplorer X (Mac, $79 USD) and Bohemian Coding’s Fontcase (Mac, $56 USD)—with some Extensis Suitcase Fusion (Mac & PC, $99.95 USD) sprinkled in.
