:suprised: I'm receiving conflicting reports about whether or not having too many fonts in your font folder can cause problems. As a graphic artist, I have to use a LOT of fonts. The other day my computer started freezing up in Illustrator, and the only changes I had made to the system were the addition of fonts to the font folder. I found there were over 700 fonts in there. I reduced it to under 650, and didn't have any more problems, so that leads me to believe it IS an issue. (This is all news to my MIS department.) I have read that the length of the font names can increase the "data load" for the system as well. Would using Adobe Type Manager alleviate these problems? I used it all the time when I was using Macs, but don't know if it will help in Windows XP.
