Hi and welcome to my thread on Fontbook. Sorry, I could not make it any more terse in order to address all my specific queries. I have used Suitcase for a long LONG time and am always amazed when I open it how limited it is... so one day I stumbled upon Fontbook (again, this time in 10.5.7) and decided to give it another looksee since the last time i reviewed it in os9 or so, anywho.. I was happly supprised because it has a couple of new functions that I would REALLY like to have fer-instance it now: 1. Views fonts with my choice of words, (fontbook>preview>custom) like Suitcase does. 2. Shows the entire range of gliphs ( Suitcase does not). (fontbook>preview>reportoire) After perusing the many google finds on Fontbook and getting more and more confused, I decided to just start clean and ask any of you Fontbook x-sperts out there the following: A. What is the difference between a "collection" and a "library" in Fontbook, there seems to be exactly zero, since one does not subset into the other? B. Does it need to be launched when in use or does it run in the background, should set it to launch automatically with the system? C. How do I access the alternate gliphs that are shown in the repertoire view? D. Is it normal to have to force quit constantly, even with only minimal number of installed fonts? E. Is this just another crappy Mac app that is best left alone. (ie. ical, imovie, safari, etc.) or should i continue pursuing it? F. Thankyewverymuch.
