  1. Stopped using Suitcase about 3 months ago. Fed up with it taking ages (read minutes) to activate a font, it crashing InDesign, and over time (been using it 3 years) I get more and more “Cannot display font” in the font display preview portion of the interface, to the point at which of 50% of the 500 fonts I own did not preview.

    Went to the website to try and troubleshoot, but oh, they don’t have a troubleshooting section, just an FAQ. Even emailed them directly but got no reply.

    My 10 licenses will not be renewed.

    Installed Linotype FontExplorer X for FREE (http://www.linotype.com/fontexplorerX), and within about 10 minutes had perfect, crash & bug free font activation.

    Why is anyone actually buying font activation software anymore?

  2. I’ve tried them all – and Linotype’s FontExplorer is the only typemanager that isn’t embarrassing. Sure I miss ATM on X – but with Adobe’s current attitude we’d have to wait until fall 2007 to get a universal version.

  3. You really don’t need a font manager if working on OS X. Just copy your fonts into /Users/Username/Library/Fonts/. You can even copy fonts in a folder into there. Any native application will see them instantly.
