    Hey guys,

    Was just wondering if anyone could help me out:
    basically I work at a small graphic design business with maybe 5 iMacs
    and mainly use the Adobe cs suite (indesign etc)
    and have a constant problem where all our iMacs have different fonts
    I've gone through and install all the same fonts across the machines
    but we are constantly installing new fonts etc.

    So, my question is, is there a way to share fonts over a network some how?
    we do have a mac mini server for file sharing if they could help.

    Thanks in advanced!

    You could do this a few ways. Dropbox would be the best since if the mounts for the mini weren't mounted then it would be any issue.

    Here is a link to do it via dropbox but this would also work on an afp share (mini server)
