I’ve been putting it off for a very long time, so today I finally broke down and made myself choose a piece of software to help me manage my vast collection of fonts. After scouring the web and testing out a few different options, my favorite has landed: Xiles.net NexusFont.
Nexus font has a simple to use interface, loads my whole library fairly quickly, and most importantly: lets me choose which sample text I use and allows me to group my fonts into sets of my choosing.
Finally! Now I no longer need to spend hours sitting in front of Adobe Illustrator hitting the “down” arrow a thousand times to find the right font. If you’ve ever had a similar experience, you should check NexusFont.
