New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is my first post on the forum. My name is Aaron and I'm a Graphic Design student @ Roger Williams University. I just recently tried to clean up and organize all my typefaces on my MAC. I have quite a hefty collection. After not finding out what I'm looking for in various searches here, I would like to ask a couple questions about type management.
The first is, Am I better off applying imported type to Suitcase Fusion or allowing Fusion to read from the directory? Every time I attempt to activate a large selection of typefaces, the system gets bogged down and takes forever to activate them.
Secondly, does leaving all the different typefaces within sub folders from the main family slow it down? For instance, if I open up a set like Font Bureau as an overall foundry set and it contains sub-folders for every type family is that OK to do, or am I better off establishing just a single folder for the foundry and drop all the families in that single directory without making sub-directories?
Thanks for your help,
