New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Moving from Windows to Mac.
I have a fairly large font library (adobe font folio, URW collections, Berthold collections, Linotype OT Libraries, OurType, Insigne, DSType, etc...). In Windows, I used FontExpert, which read from the corresponding folders for each library. I activated specific fonts as needed.
But OS X seems to place fonts in various folders... I think I understand the design of that.
On MBpro, using FontExplorer Pro, which I have organized the various Mac, office mac, and adobe fonts into 'required' and 'other' sets. Cut activated fonts from 744 to 280.
Now, ready to bring over my personal font library... and wanted to ask what the best strategy is for this.
1. Do I create individual 'folders' for each library (adobe, linotype, urw, etc), and then from the amassed library, create 'sets' (serif, sans-serifs, etc.) for the typefaces/fonts that I use the most ?
2. Which folder should I keep my font library (I keep backups on an external drive and in the cloud) ?
Would appreciate any guidance...
