    Font Book Suddenly Not Working
    Has anybody had a similar problem to me..

    I have about 3000 fonts installed, and I use font book to organise them. I have loads .. well HAD loads of folders that organised them into handwritten, cowboy, punky etc and so whenever I was working on a project I would have all fonts disabled except for the folders that matched the work I was doing.

    The other day I disabled a folder.. and all the fonts disappeared from that folder. Then when I looked into the other folders, they too had lost all the fonts. I couldn't undo as it wouldn't let me, and I couldn't get those fonts anywhere but the 'all fonts' selection at the top.

    I started the laborious process of re-categorising them which took me four hours just to do the first third.. and it's happened again!! I'm going insane here. I tried deleting the preferences file on someones suggestion and it's taken the font book back to not even having the folders set up. So I played around with font book and set up a few mini folders and each time I try disable it in the exact way that I have been doing it deletes them all unless I disable the fonts individually.

    I don't want to start AGAIN.. if my font book is going to keep doing this..

    You are better off using Font Explorer, Font Book is not really up to the task of handling that many fonts

    Font Management - Simple, Smart, Free - Linotype FontExplorer X
