Is there a plug in and/or a way to group fonts into sets in the Indesign font menu. For example: Script fonts, sans serif fonts etc.
So I could then just go to say script fonts and see only script fonts and not have to look at every font loaded to find a script font.
I have been looking for a way to group my fonts again since Apple changed their security system which caused YouControl Fonts to stop working. Also in OS9 there was Now Utilities, which also allowed you to color your fonts in the menu. A work around has been to create a Character Style list and use your Character Styles as a font menu. Far from elegant and quite a mess when you open old files and import your list. Pains… no good.
A look at CC menus and it’s also far from what’s needed. It’s so strange how things go so backwards at times. Old technology is better than new. Buying new versions of CS (CC) is out of the question. There must be some clever software company is out there that can fix this and make this plug in a reasonable price.
Or perhaps a software that can rename fonts so the InDesign menu places them in some sort of group. Serif, San Serif, Script, Header etc. Even placing an SS, S, SC, H in front of each font you want grouped. I have Fontographer and can do this, but what a pain, plus who knows what other pains it may cause.
Most people with a lot of fonts use font management tools such as Suitcase Fusion, Font Explorer from Linotype, Font Agent Pro, and so on. I don’t recall that any of them let you color the fonts in your menu, or group them in the font menu itself, but they all let you filter and find fonts in various ways within their user interface.
