    Adobe Illustrator Question
    Hi All,

    Can you think of any reason fonts that appear in Fontbook would not appear in my Illustrator listing of fonts? It's really driving me crazy.

    Thanks!

    some fonts do do this sometimes, but I think your best solution is to use a more robust font manager - you can do this for free, especially since FontBook becomes a pain if you have a lot of fonts

    Here is a copy of my stock answer to this question

    If you are going to start loading quite a few fonts, font book is not the best app, the free font explorer is much much better

    http://www.linotype.com/fontexplorerX

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

    Just substitute use Suitcase with use Linotype FontExplorer
