    In FontExpert 2011, going through all of the various font folders I have when I want something in particular (like a script) takes far too long, so I’m finally getting around to creating some “Groups” (catagories) in FE. I can already see that this is going to take a while!

    In your opinion, what would be a good list of catagories that covers the bases, without being too many?


    My first hunch:

    - Serif

    - Sans Serif

    - Slab Serif

    - Script

    - Arts & Crafts

    - Art Deco

    - Asian

    - Curly/Fun

    - Weathered

    Thanks Fred.

    On a related note: When selecting particular fonts for inclusion into a group, I used the "link" option, which according to the FAQ of FE, will allow a person to delete a font from a FE group without it being actually deleted from the original folder. Yet this is not happening for me - it gets deleted from the original folder, into the Recycle Bin.

    :help

    Can't advise you there. The only FontExpert program I am familiar with is the typeface identification program I used to distribute. They are gone now and apparently someone has ripped off their name and applied it to their font management program.
