I'm curious of what other people think of Suitcase for OS X, or those who have another brand of a font management utility.
I've been using Suitcase for the last 4 months (version 10.2). Personally, I wish Adobe ported ATM Deluxe to OS X -- it was snappy and responsive.
Due to the nature of my field of work, I use a fair amount of fonts (somewhere in the hundreds) and I think Suitcase just can't handle the amount I use.
For example, when I boot up it takes a good minute or two for Suitcase to fully load. (I have about 50 standard fonts that I have on the ready that are always "on" in addition to the System fonts). It's pretty difficult to just jump into whatever program I want when Suitcase is crawling at a snail's pace to finishing launching.
I thought that it might be the fact that I have too many fonts running (which shouldn't matter, really. ATM never caused me delays) -- but when I first started with Suitcase, there would be a good 20 second delay from when I would select a font to preview (before I had added the hundreds from my personal collection), or when I would enable that font.
It just makes it way too time consuming to properly manage my fonts.
To make a long story short (too late! [img]smile.gif[/img] ) I'm getting fed up with the lack of performance and am seriously looking into an alternative to Suitcase.
