    Thumbs up Rendering this massive collection

    Even with my DL speed, it still took over a day to get this collection.

    It DOES contain a lot of fonts ( and yes there are some duplicates) but there is a way to take control of sduch a massive set.

    One folder contains a lot of Font management programs but in this modern day and age, you will need a modern Font Manager to manage the fonts and a more streamlined method for viewing them. Some Notes:

    Adobe Type Manager had its day....ca Windows 2000 and before. Postscript Fonts are a thing of the past and are largely useless unless you can convert them to TTF or OTF (Recommended)

    While the OTF fonts in the collection are OS independent, the TTF and PS fonts in it are windows use only. TTF was sup[planted by OTF for many reasons but the most compelling one was that one OTF file...Mac and Windows compatible.

    Most all of the font programs in the collection are legacy and probably not functional on Windows 7/8

    A freeware program called Irfanview can look at a folder of fonts using a forward/backward arrow button allowing you to look at a lot of fonts in a quick fashion

    Since I am on vacation this week and have some free time, I will render this collection down by removing dupes, useless font management programs and add a few other such programs that are useful in modern day systems. Stay tuned for updates.

    How was the Vacation

    Did you make any progress on a streamlined version of the 20+ gb of fonts?

    I have a huge collection of fonts
    which I sorted from the word go but I still have some dupes

    its going to be challenging to arrange those
    n of the font managers are gonna be able to handle
    that kind of volume and size

    so I say
    MANUALLY
