font manager

Suggestion for free font manager? Anyone?

Hello folks,

Do you have any suggestion (free) font manager for Windows? It had been hard for me to check one by one in Word or Photoshop the bad font and the good one, deleting multiple fonts, testing font without installing, and may be categorising fonts installed.


A smart way to test typefaces for logotype use?


This is how I do it:
I have a personal selection of typefaces of my liking that I keep in a folder (my "best").
I have imported this folder in a set in Font Explorer.
I have created an illustrator file containing a line for every different typeface, one after the other. I can use the function "find&replace" to change all the dummy text to my desired logo word.

How do you do that? Do you use something online like myfonts? Maybe you use your font manager and then you just activate the ones that might work?

The trick is to create a system that is fast, does note engulf the computer, and is portable (think about a freelancer who is often offsite, working in an agency).
