I found this issue posted in 2011 but was never answered.
I am having the exact same problem as that user: I have a lot of fonts, but I only enable about 30 fonts at a time using Font Book. However, ALL 1000+ of my fonts still appear in the pull down menu in Photoshop. This causes my system to slow down and Photoshop to crawl.
Dumping my font caches is not helping. This problem seems to happen a lot and at random times. This affects ONLY Adobe products (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator). All my other programs work well with Font Book.
Font Book ver 2.2.2
OS 10.6.8 (20" iMac) Upgrading to newer OS is NOT an option.
Dumped all AdoneFnt*.lst files and restarted.
Restarted in safe mode.
Checked all fonts for corruption (all are perfect).
Why won't Adobe address this issue?
Hi psduser2000 and welcome to the Adobe Forums,
I have moved this thread from the beginners forum to the general forum, where you will be able to get more help.
