    I'm looking for a Font Management program that works well in Lion. I've been dealing with horrible font issues all week at my office job, and it's encouraged me to tidy up my fonts at home :)

    This weekend I'm going to be doing a clean install of Lion...I upgraded a few weeks ago, but want to do a clean install because it's been ages and my system feels a bit laggy. Along with that I'm going to be organizing my fonts, and I want a nice font management program. Up until now I've been using the free version of Linotype Font Explorer X, and it works well enough, but I was just wondering if you guys have pros/cons for any of the programs out there. I've done some reading on them, but I'm looking for objective opinions from people that are using them on a regular basis. Thanks much!

    when i first got my mac, i installed suitcase fusion, but never bothered using it because i discovered the built in font book was much simpler. i don't know how many fonts and what kind of files you work with, but i suggest you give font book a try before spending any money.
