Thread: How do i?
11-29-2004, 09:09 PM #1sivpGuestHow do i?
I found my old cd of 6000 .ttf fonts, i'm wondering if there is a simple way to install all of them in mass amount. From what i know, you have to double click each one and hit the install button... :O, that would take forever...
If anyone knows any good applications to install mass amount of fonts, fell free to share your knowledge......

Grab yourself a copy of Suitcase™ XI (I'm guessing about $100) and copy all your fonts to a directory, anywhere on your drive will be o.k, then add them all to suitcase. Every time you startup Suitcase™ will enable what you want, when you want.
Or you can just copy them all to the Font directory in your home directory, located:
home > Library > Fonts
but the more you add, the longer it takes for an application to see them all.
Apple's FontBook™ is the alternative free option but it's not great!

I'm sooo angry right now.......
i had to reinstall my whole panther os.... i read that if you copy all the .ttf files into the Library/fonts folder, the computer should see all the fonts after you restart...
I copied about 6, 000 fonts into there, and when i went to restart, it never turned back on...
I'm sitting at 11:42 now reinstalling everything... :mad:
Edit: Spread the word to people who ask this question... Prevent it from happening again.

if u use fontbook, just open up the application, select all the fonts in whatever folder you have them in, and drag them onto the fontbook window
