OS? Version of ID?
2500 fonts isn't enough? Waht do you do with all those fonts at once? How do you even find the one's you need?
Thanks for taking a look at my quetion. OS X Version 10.8.3, ID CS6. I normaly use Fontexplorer to find a font i am happy with, but sometimes i scroll through the font drop down menu in ID, but noticed that it stops at around the 2500th font.
Thats the furthest it will show - but i have plenty more fonts installed. Also in the Character tab after scrolling down, the font previews dissapear:
I have reinstalled Indesign, but this has not fixed the issue. Any thoughts?
From reading about, i think i have found the answer! I think that Indesign will have a cap on the font preview drop down menu- which is why i should not activate all of my fonts (approx 5000) in Fontexplorer and only have a selected amount active. I will use Fontexplorer to find the font i need and then ctivate it. Also, if i have auto activate on, whenever i import a file that i dont have the fonts activated, it will automativally detect and activate them fro me.
I think this is the right answer!!
Having only a few hundred essential fonts permanently active should also boost performance.
