Recommend font manager for mac?

Q: Recommend font manager for mac?

Macbook Pro 10.6.6

I'm looking for a font manager that will scan my hdd for all fonts, installed and not installed, and let me categorize them into virtual groups or use tags so that I can easily find the fonts I have tagged/grouped as bold or angled or holiday or with a motion effect etc. Font Book, which comes w/ the mac os, only lets me group fonts that are installed.

Preferred Solution: Recommend font manager for mac?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Recommend font manager for mac?

I found a good review of mac fonts, including reviews of font managers. There are trial versions of all but one. None of them sound like they will function to classify fonts [by my criteria] stored on the hdd, but not installed. Also found an article on font management tools that included programs that will let you view uninstalled fonts - but Font Book does that.

Hi, I'm looking for a password manager, please can you recommend anything that will suit my needs for banking etc

A:Can you recommend a password manager.

Hi mattytun There's a few good password managers that exists (both online and offline). Personally, I've been using LastPass for a year and I love it (you need to subscribe to its services to have the iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, etc. app however, but the program on your computer is free to use). I just renewed my subscription with them since it expired on the 21th.There's also 1Password, KeePass, DashLane, RoboForm, Sticky Password, etc. What I suggest you to do is to take a look at all of them, and decide which one you like the most based on their features. If you want to keep your passwords offline and like to tweak your programs a bit, then I suggest you to use KeePass with the Android app and it's various plugins.Here's a short list of the password managers I listed.,2817,2407168,00.asp

Hi all!

I would really love to hear you suggestions on what downloader manager(s) to use (even an add-on for Firefox).

I just wanted to know because I asked my friends, and each use use different ones and cannot decide which can be called "the best" (if there is one).

P.S. I use Vista HPx32.

For my work, I need to be able to manage the several thousand different fonts I need. My previous XP setup really lagged in this respect.

Does such a solution exist where I can perhaps hold all my fonts in a program, and only activate/install a font while I use it and then deactivate said font when I'm done for the day so my computer doesn't slow down?

My system is already slowed down by very clunky engineering software, and the last thing I need is another drag on my system.

Any other forums that may have helpful answers too?

Anyone know of or is currently using a good font manager in Vista x64?

On the Mac side I use Linotype's FontExplorer X, which in addition to being the best font manager there is, it's also FREE

Unfortunately, they're putting out a Windows version but it's not released just yet.

Frankly font handling in Vista blows as is, I need a decent font manager to fill me in until Linotype releases theirs.

I'm also wondering if it'll let me use my huge collection of postscript fonts. OS X works seamlessly with windows fonts, I have a feeling though Vista won't return the courtesy

Hi All,

I am trying to install 32 barcode fonts (type .ttf) using a batch file. Everything that I have read says that you should just be able to copy the font to C:\windows\fonts and then add the appropriate value to the registry at HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts. My batch file does both of these things, however the fonts still do not show up in the font manager (or applications). They do show up if I browse to the fonts folder using cmd so I know they are where they should be. Is there something that I am missing here? These fonts need to be installed on every computer at my company so manually installing them isn't really an option. Any help here would be great!

In my experience you need to re-start applications in order for newly installed fonts to show up in available fonts.

It may also be worth try installing a couple of fonts one-by-one to see if it's batch-file related.

I've been struggling with an issue that I hope someone here can help resolve. A few weeks ago, I suddenly started seeing this ugly font (see images below) on many webpages.

I think this issue began right around the time I installed some other fonts, but I am not sure. Initially, I figured it was a Chrome thing but have since confirmed the issue extends to IE and Firefox, leading me to believe this is a Windows issue. By the time I tried to revert the changes via System Restore, it was too late (restore only went back a few days; maybe I need to adjust settings there?).

I tried to reset the default font but Windows does not seem to respond to that. When I click "Restore to default font settings" the button greys out but nothing else happens. No dialog box and no change in the issue.

Any ideas?

But I am trying to install multiple font styles for one font family. The file names are all different. It is for the font TrumpetLite and here are the file names:

So it's Bold-Italic, Bold, Italic, and Normal. But when I highlight all 4 and right-click and say install it keeps asking me if I want to replace each file. So it will only install on style, not all 4. It does the same when I drag n drop the files into the fonts folder.

Hi Miro,

In Windows 7, the default theme font for Windows Aero is Segoe UI.

In Windows 8, the default theme font for Windows Metro is Segoe WP.

You can change the font by editing the theme in Windows 7 (right-click on the desktop → personalize).

You can't change the font in Windows 8 as the feature was removed.

Hey guys, I wanna change some fonts and font sizes on my computer but I don't know where/which ones to change in the Display settings. The text is very small on some places and on other places it's normal size (at least what I think). I've circled the text I want to change with RED and the text that is GREEN is the text that I'm ok with the way it looks now.

Monitor is set on 1600x1200 resolution. I know that makes everything smaller but I've had this resolution before I reformatted my PC but all fonts and font sizes were normal then.

A:Font/font sizes

I don't get why would you want to change you text. Is possible but could be very dangrous, you could even need to reinstall your system if is really bad. I think you could do it by find the driver folder in C: and use the text from microsoft and replace some of the font, it could take long and hard because the window files are hard to replace some of the text.

A:Which of these PC's would you recommend?

Both processors are dual core so they are about even, but I do like the E6600 better than the E6400 simply because it's faster and has twice the L2 cache.

I'd buy the E6600 and then plan to purchase a new video card and operating system. How much are you planning on spending on this computer because it's very possible to cobble together for you a computer that would meet or beat a combination of the best parts of the 7635 and the 7755 for usually just a little more money.

Hey guys, i got a tall order for you guys.

i was wondering if it would be advisable to have 2 AV's, 2 Anti Spyware/Malware, and 2 Fire walls? Recently i had a glitch in the system, some Backdoor virus is trying to get in.
Bitdefender is blocking it left and right so im safe. Am i over reacting? or should i amp up my security? So i considered running 2 of each.

heres what i considered

Main AV: Bitdefender 2nd AV: Either MSE, Avast or Avira

Main Anti spyware/malware: MalwareBytes 2nd Anti: Superantispyware or any other

Main Firewall: windows7 firewall control 2nd wall: pctools firewall or anyother

what do you guys think? i mostly use my puter for school, games, and im constantly downloading new software.

Check out my specs and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advanced.

A:Do You Recommend it?

While running 2 AV's is possible, it's definitely not advisable. There's nothing at all wrong with running a virus scan with more than one anti-virus program. Because it's just a scan - it starts, it scans, and then it's done. Real time monitoring, which is installed with most anti-virus programs is constantly running and scanning files downloaded to your machine. Running two or more real time anti-virus monitors at the same time is very likely to cause a conflict which could result in any number of error messages or failures. The most advisable thing to do would to be to find a good, reliable anti-virus program that you trust, and make sure it's always updated with the latest definitions.

Same for anti-spyware programs, as long as there isn't two real time monitoring engines trying to do the same thing at once, you should be fine.

The same goes for firewalls, however, I just wouldn't recommend running two software based firewalls at the same time because, as with AV programs, they monitor in real time, and two programs trying to do the same thing at once can and usually will cause problems. However, if you have a hardware based firewall, such as one built into a router, there would be no problem running a software and a hardware based firewall.

As for your case, if you believe BitDefender is doing it's job, I would leave it as your anti-virus, and use MalwareBytes and run a periodic scan to check for spyware, and either use the default Windows Firewall, or another 3rd party firewall and all should be fine. But remember, the best security is purely common sense while browsing

A:Can someone recommend a CPU

From the MB and CPU specs, I would assume the PC is at least 5 years old?

It is possible to upgrade the CPU a bit, but finding Athlon XP CPUs is getting fairly difficult and expensive. Also, upgrading any other part in such an old system would be a waste of money since you won't be able to reuse it in a future system later on.

Your money would be better used if you saved a bit for a completely new PC with up to date parts. There are plenty of fairly decent PCs on the market these days for under $500 which would perform many times better.

I am planning a new build (already bought mobo, cpu, ram, and dvd drive), and I am looking for a nice PSU. I havent decided on a graphics card yet, but its likely that i will get either an 8800gt or an 9800gtx (they ususally want ~300-450W)

Anyways, most PSU's I have seen have around 8 molex cables. I dont need 8 molex cables, I dont even really need one (maybe certain case fans btw). My Hard Drive will be SATA, my DVD drive is SATA, so I dont want to waste space and drown in cables with extra molex's. I am looking for something at 600W (nice and safe, all hardware should be fine with this), and not to many molex connectors.

A:What CPU will u recommend ?

What do you mean your CPU is almost dead? CPU's don't fail fairly often and there's usually no "almost dead" state for them.

Albatron tech support is pathetic at best, but you need to check with them which processors are supported and i you need a BIOS update to run those processors. Normally this is posted clearly on the manufacturer's website but these guys don't seem to work in the same manner.

I would look for one that would run your system for about 10 minutes to give you time to close out any files that you have open and gracefully shut down in case of a power outage. Just don't put your laserjet printer on the same line. Your monitor and computer should be all that is necessary.
APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V should be more than sufficient. Many are cheaper but you gets what you pay for. Some of the cheaper ones are nothing but a surge supressor.

PC Diagnostic software? Something that looks for potential problems and can fix them but still giving the user control over what gets repaired?

I have used Norton WinDoctor for years but recently it repaired a registry entry and caused big time problems. I had to use System Restore to back up to the previous backup. Ever since I have been reluctant to let it clean much up with out eyeballing the change first. I have also used Norton CleanSweep for a long time but it will not always remove software that it says it does.

I recently tried PC BugDoctor. It finds a lot more errors than WinDoctor does but their licensing fee is quite high, so I've never bought it. And it does not say what it's going to repair so I have never had it try.

As per title, I've been using ASUS motherboards for last 11 years and I must say they are worth every penny. First one was P4P800-Deluxe which lasted from 2001 to 2007 and second one is P5E3 which I'm using since 2007 till now.

I guess its time to jump on bandwagon and upgrade my system. I'm again very much leaning towards getting ASUS again, i.e. P8P67

I was wondering if I should try some other brands like Gigabyte or MSI. I know ASrock is sister company of ASUS so its like getting same motherboard for less money. What will you my fellow PC geeks will advise to go for?

All you can expect to hear is someone's personal experience with a brand, such as you just stated yourself for Asus. "I've owned leventy-leven brand X motherboards and never had a problem".

You can then go immediately to Google and find all kinds of horror stories about that particular brand.

Anecdotes are just that and mean little since the horror stories encompass all brands and you will play hell finding any authoritative evidence--just as it is for hard drives.

I've owned Intel, Dell, Gigabyte, and several Asus motherboards. The only one that ever failed was an Asus.

Signifying nothing. It's just another anecdote.

Look for the features you need and buy from a dealer you trust.

Make some wild-ass guesses and questionable assumptions about supposed build quality and quality control.

Hope it doesn't break.

Hope even harder that you never need to deal with customer support.

I'm looking to use a VPN on Windows 10 plus my iPhone 5S, anyone know of any good ones?

I was looking at a few but no idea if there any good, anyone know if they are good? | The Best VPN Service Provider with Fast, Secure VPN AccessVyprVPN | VyprVPN - Secure Personal VPN | Golden FrogExpressVPN | ExpressVPN - A Fast and Secure VPN

Do you guys have another recommendation?

PS - Any idea if Avast Premier there SecureLine VPN is any good?

A:VPN Recommend?

What exactly are you using your VPN with? You mean between your iPhone and your Windows 10 computer? If so, no need for a VPN, just use the Microsoft Remote Desktop app in the AppStore.

If you mean a VPN to your work network, then your work should have a VPN server and client already.

I have 3 PCI Slots (One of which doesn't work for unknown reasons, 2 are being used - one by my wireless network and the other by my current graphics device, the fx 5200). I also have a AGP 4x/8x Slot... An older version. Newer AGP type devices I don't think will fit due to reversed plugs on the cards than I have in my motherboard. So please, no AGP recommendations.

But, I would like to hear of a nice, cheap video card that's in the range of GF 7 and GF 9. Thank you.

You can also email me your suggestions: [email protected]

Currently have an HP A1730N and want to upgrade my video card to an XFX 7900GS. Current power supply is 300watts and I need bare minimum 350, so I figure a 500watt supply.

I have an onboard PCI-E slot, pci slots, 2 SATA board connectors. I am running 1 SATA HD, a USB DVDRW, and have 3 sticks of 1gb DDR2 RAM. Have about 6 USB devices going. Everything else is onboard, including sound and my current video card which will obviously be disabled. CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 x2 4600+

Need something that will fit fine and give me the right connections. Looking to spend less than $60. Thanks.

A:Recommend me a PSU

This one might work:

Don't expect top end for $60 though.

I want to install an AV soon to pair with my current Malwaresbytes installation. I don't want to mess with the configuration too much, just want a install-and-forget installation type. My PC have decent performance.

What AV you recommend me to pair with MalwaresBytes that is noob-friendly?

Bonus: I have read that Bitdefender have an auto-pilot. Is Bitdefender 2017 decent and compatible with Malwarebytes?

Thank you

A:Recommend me an AV

Noob friendly? I would say Avira
