    I have heard a lot of griping about fontbook. I am going to have about 200 fonts to manage, what should I use?

    SuitCase was the standard. I don't really like it - much prefer fontbook!

    Didn't even try fontbook, considering there's no auto activation.

    Suitcase is the lesser of two evils.

    After my upgrade to panther, I decided not to reinstall suitcase, I never found it to work correctly and it caused more issues then what it was worth. I have been using FontBook and love it, ai and ps work great with it, no complaints, I will report back once I have more of my fonts installed and have to do some shuffling.... well... one complaint, I tried to resolve a font conflict and it seemed to take for ever... otherwise all is well.

    I add them manually to my fonts directory for now. I've tried adding the font files using FontBook, but after a week, they're missing.

    I suspect that I'm just going to write my own GUI application to handle moving them in and out. There won't be any auto-activation, but it's better than trusting FontBook at this point.
