I'm looking to organize my fonts as they are quickly getting out of control. Curious to see the apps that other people are using. Compatible with Mac please.
I use Fonts by Bohemian Code.
I tried using it but it never stays open long enough (crashes after about 5-15 seconds on startup) for me to see how it works. Any alternatives?
How many fonts do you really need?
As many as you can name, remember and identify?
I use Suitcase Fusion 5. Multiple licenses. Integration with CC, Typekit, and Google Fonts. And more!
FontExplorer X Pro http://www.fontexplorerx.com/
I've wanted to try Fonts by Bohemian Coding, but read a lot of reviews about it being buggy and slow. I've been using FontExplorer for a few years now, and it's been fantastic for me.
I've been using FontExplorer X Pro too. I'm curious to try other programs, but it's not worth the hassle of changing. Font problems are the worst.
"Fonts" by Bohemian Coding (Sketch) looks really nice.
Oh neat! I wasn't aware that Bohemian Coding had released a new fonts app after Fontcase.
Yep, the website is down since they updated Sketch. Can't find a URL for this. http://www.bohemiancoding.com/fonts/
TypeDNA. Works on both my Windows and Mac computers. Activate and deactivate fonts on the fly without having to restart the application. Comes with 2 licenses.
Fonts only views fonts, I still have to add fonts to sets trough OS X's native Fontbook.
But Fonts has the smoothest UI. When I create and edit the sets in Fontbook I just use Fonts for viewing.
Fonts is much faster and more stable than Fontbook.
Fonts looks great but adds no major value. I found it to be very unstable for something that was basically just previewing fonts I'd already organised. I really wanted it to be good.
Let's hope that they pick up the project and introduce some new features. Sketch wasn't as great as it is now from version 1 too if you think about it :)
