    Best font manager for OSX

    Best font manager for OSX Lion - Mountain Lion.

    Not really a fan of fontbook, trialing Linotype FontExplorer X. What's best to use?

    Thumbs up Suitcase Fusion

    I personally have to recommend Suitcase Fusion (I'm using version 2). It's easy to manage and very clear software to use. I store my favourite and recent fonts on Dropbox so I can easily drag & drop the font files to SF font folders. You can create font folders by genre or project you're working on, etc. This way I can easily access fonts from my work and home computer anytime and SF is great with it. SF crashes veeery rarely and logging out and in again works almost all the time. All on Moutain Lion.

    I started using Fontcase a while ago because I really liked the UI. Unfortunately it crashed too often both with 10.7 and 10.8 and the bugfixes weren't released regularly. Now I'm back to Linotype FontExplorer X because in comparison with Fontcase it simply works.

    My friend, who is mad about Mac OS, recommend Suitcase Fusion - it's much better than Linotype.

    Font explorer X pro, hands down best font management in my eyes!

    Can any briefly outline why Suitcase is so great? :-)

    I'm interested in getting a program for my fonts and I just wanted to know why people picked the they have.

    Thanks :-)

    This may have changed, but last time I used suitcase, it wasn't working to well with auto font activation with indesign/illustrator etc.

    I think that was the main reason I jumped to Font Explorer Pro and have never looked back.

    I don't think you can go wrong with any of the big s really, all work, all work well (I believe), why not trial them and pick the you like!

    +3 for Suitcase Fusion;

    Although I was viewing the other thread linked above and TypeDNA caught my eye; I may give it a whirl and see if it's worth the cash. I have a somewhat disorganised file structure (because fonts come from a wide variety of tagging authors).

    ... day I'll sit down and organise it. But for now Suitcase Fusion is quite nice, the integration with CS is nice.
