You need a font management utility, I would think. Not to mention that it probably would help in speeding up the system, as too many fonts open at the same time can bog down your Mac.

There are a few alternatives, to name just a few: Suitcase, FontExplorer X, FontTools.

Hope this helps.

Font Explorer is excellent and it's free!

Ignore Fontbook and ask FontExplorer to import all your fonts. Then you can just go through and activate what you need.

No don't delete FontBook. Just keep it, it won't prevent FontExplorer X from doing its job.

And glad I could help and you got it sorted.
