Over the years I've amassed a rather large amount of fonts.

I need to manage them as it takes forever for PS, Illustrator and such to start up and then I can only access a certain number of the fonts.

I have Font Explorer X installed but how the hell do I use it properly?

I need easy steps as I have no patience when it comes to stuff like this:o

Thanks for any help...

Sounds like you want to enable Auto-Activation.

Unfortunately for you, FontExplorer X isn't very good at that.

Oh, it does it... it's just not very good at it.

Some folk on here swear by FontExplorer... I swear at it.

We use Extensis Suitcase (http://www.extensis.com/en/products/font_management/product_information.jsp?locale=en_US&id=1060) at school. Although it's not exactly cheap ($99), it works really well...
