    I'm recently upgraded to Panther and I'm wondering what font management program people use for it. I'm a graphic designer and I deal with fonts quite a bit. Do people use Font Book that's in the OS or do people still use Extensis Suitcase? Or is there anything else anyone can recommend using.

    if you have like 500 or more fonts you will find fontbook incrediably slow. get extensis!

    Suitcase. FontBook is great if you don't have many fonts. If you do though, it's hell.

    Suitcase all the way... ;) I can't imagine how Font Book would handle the 9000 or so fonts that I have on my PowerBook :eek: :p

    Seems like Extensis Suitcase is the way to go.

    Thank you all for your replies.

    What's the difference between Font Reserve and Suitcase? They are both made by Extensis right? Is one better than the other?
