    At work, im trying to upgrade a computer from tiger to leopard. But it has alot of unused junk on it so im planning on doing a clean install.

    The issue is the user is using Linotype Font Explorer X. I would like to move them all over to font book or just drop them in the font folder and let the applications handle them (if possible).

    I exported them and tried to import them into font boot but 85% of them appear to be damaged. When i double click on the file they ethier dont open or open a blank text edit file.

    How can i go though 1000s of fonts to find out which ones are usable and which ones arent? opening them one by one will take forever.

    If you highlight all of the fonts from Font Book you can go under the File menu and choose Validate Font and Validate File. That may help speed things up.
