    Shovel, if you don't mind my asking, how do you organize them so that you can use them in graphics programs without blowing up your computer?

    By foundry and also into subcategories: script, sans serif, modern, etc.

    Ah, I'm guessing you have quite the group sets for projects to activate and deactivate. Geez, you must have the patience of a saint!

    Only system fonts need be installed.

    See, fonts are something I've always scratched my head about... Are there any general tutorials about how to work with them more easily? I know that if I want to run most of my fonts, Photoshop has a conniption fit. I have about 6,000, but I often just turn them on or off by making groups in my FontCase. Is there an easier way I'm dense about? (Like that would be a surprise...)

    Sorry for being a :thread

    (I finally got to use that! :D)

    Any typeface program where you can turn them on and off when needed.
    I'd suspect that you have a lot of typefaces installed through windows.

    Ah, I'm actually working on the Mac. I tend to just set them up in groups and activate them depending on which project I work on. I wasn't sure if that was pretty standard, or if I was the only one doing that. :)

    Ha ha, I'm also the first to admit that I'm happy to have XP installed on a partition to run my serious programs like Excel! (Also, the games run smoother because they're coded properly.)

    But yes, I am one of the people who pay the extra money for the mac shininess. I got tired of building towers in highschool computer classes (we used Redhat Linux at the time) and liked the all-in-one setup in the Macs at our college design courses, so I switched.

    I graduated art school a year before Mac hit the market.
    A year later and I would have been at an ad agency all this time.
    Screw signs!
    I could have been on Madison Ave.
