hi binki, i use corel and pc. most of the time.
I just drag and drop the font files into the PC/control-panel/fonts directory.

it gets installed into your computer and COREL calls them up for use.

if you are building a large collection... extensis suitcase is really useful. you can turn fonts on and off. otherwise, if you load your systems folder with fonts... it takes longer to load, sometimes they get corrupted and mess up stuff...etc etc.

At $80 it seems a bit pricey for what it does though.

Does anyone have a good free font management software they recommend?

The Font Thing is almost seven years old. I mean if it works, it works, but that does make me nervous :)

really ? i have 500-1000 fonts on my XP laptop and it runs fine (fast).
This was more of an issue with older versions of Windows; too many fonts could cause some major problems and slowdown on 95 or 98. It will still potetially slow down XP, but it isn't as big of a problem.

Of course, there's also the issue of actually looking through that many fonts when you want to actually use them...

Sometimes newer stuff is worse, even updates to old programs can be worse sometimes. Old stuff can be quality (especially older games ;)

One example is DVD Maestro, a DVD Authoring programs that's 5+ years old (got bought out and hasn't been updated). It's still easily considered one of the best programs in the business.
