Just setting up my new mac and I added the wrong font collection to font book. Did not think there would be any problems just removing the new library I had made. Re-started the computer, font book looked ok - just had the system fonts there. BUT - opened Quark Xpress and all 1000 of the fonts are open! Double checked font book again and all is well. Any ideas why Quark is seeing all those fonts? Thanks

Check two places for those fonts. Look in (user)/Library/Font Collections, and in MacIntosh HD/Library/Fonts. If you find them, delete them.

If you are going to use a lot of fonts I would recommend using a proper font manager instead

Font book is not the best app, the free font explorer is much much better

If you really want to manage your fonts well I suggest the suitcase (another font management tool - not free) guide to best font practices in OS X (the guide is free)

Best Practices for Managing Fonts in Mac OS X - 6th Edition (updated: Oct. 2009)

Just substitute use Suitcase with use Linotype FontExplorer
