Forum Question: What is the best (and inexpensive way) to organize fonts?

I have about a bazillion fonts I’ve collected over the years, dating back to my PC days. While migrating over from a MacBook to a new MacBook Pro, I noticed I have over 1200 fonts installed and activated! Help! What is the best way for me to get a handle on this tangled mess?

    Well, you have Font Book already there, why not try using that? You can arrange your fonts in categories and activate and deactivate groups of them as you wish. I know there are some 3rd-party font organization tools out there, but I would try Font Book first, and really get to know what it can do, before looking elsewhere. I don’t think any program is going to do a good job of organizing 1,200 fonts (that’s a lot!) so you might want to consider archiving some of them and getting them off your drive and down to a manageable amount.
