    by foundry. really need to get on it and categorize them properly. im liking the serif, sans, script, display categories i've seen posted here. seems simple enough.

    I tried this once, but it's a subjective system and some typefaces simply don't fit neatly into these categories. >.<

    Although I don't do this myself, for ultimate organization I suggest copying the categories used by sites such as myfonts.com and dafont.com. I think the problem then becomes fonts that meet multiple criteria (i.e. sanserif and display, etc.)

    If you want something more practical, sort by: Foundry, Alpha-numeric, Family.

    Thanks every. This is so helpful. I'm in desperate need of a better naming system so I can find fonts by foundry, etc. I have way too many general categories like "scripty" lol.

    I think it'd be best to use a program like NexusFont and give fonts tags so you don't have to use only sorting into directories by foundry or mood but can instead search for whatever you need, be it through mood, thickness, foundry, style, or even age.

    By foundries! But I wish there was a program which would categorize them for me. I like the idea of being able to tag them!

    Foundry then Font name. Which is useless unless you know the font you want. Then it's a quick way to find them but useless when you are trying to find just the right font for a project. I am gonna try an application

    Yes, Font explorer has basic automation in categorizing. You can create fontset too.
