Photoshop: More font-sorting options (Custom Folders, Color Coding) (Font-type folders like Font Expolorer Pro sets - Implemented)

i've loaded about 1'683 fonts... (more or less) in fontexplorer Pro i made beautiful sets (folders) to organise all of them. I sorted them by type (serif, sans-serif, pixel, whatsoever) it would be an major advantage that those folder or similar ones would appear in the font-lists.. because the alphabetical order is ok. but with too many fonts activated it's so boring to type you through the abc instead of check all fonts of a similar kind...

You can now specify favorite fonts, and show similar fonts in Photoshop CC 2015.1 update that went out today: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/usi...

Show similar fonts doesn't match similar fonts. When it's selected I get a mix of grotesque and humanist faces. And not all similar fonts are matched . I get italics mixed with semibolds and bolds. And condensed versions mixed with obliques. It's an awful mess.
Adobe Gurmukhi and Adobe Devanagari are *not* similar to Chapparral.

Have you tried to use the type ahead box to locate one of your 1000s of typefaces? It's an abject exercise in futility. I start typing and the results completely occlude the input form. I hit enter when the right face is selected and it selects an entirely different face. When it partially matches a face the results box is wildly disconnected from the input field... It's unusable. Weights select themselves at random when I'm simply trying to type Akzidenz.

Please add a way to categorize the fonts in Photoshop. I want to be able to create categories for all my fonts, like Grunge fonts, Handwritting, Linotype, Serious, Funny, Antique, etc. The list of font I currently have is so extensive that is hard to remember which fonts I have used in the past. If I had them by category it would be much faster. The idea is when I go to the font list, I will see first my 10 or 20 categories instead of 2000 fonts disorganized (or sorted out alphabetically).

New Character Panel where I can group my fonts in Folders or tagging them so I can organize better my activated font collection, instead of just scrolling trough all the alphabetically arange list of fonts.

Great idea. I'd actually like to have this functionality built into Bridge and based off tags that waterfall through all of my Adobe applications. It would be great to have a field to type in custom text and see it in the Preview window of Bridge with the selected font applied.

Being able to apply descriptive tags like Juan Vela suggested and then even giving out star ratings to the fonts would make it a snap to search through a huge library of fonts across all of my apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, or After Effects.

Even better would be the ability to add fonts into Smart Collections or tag them to specific projects as you begin the proposal phase or style guide exploration at the beginning of a project.

Bridge is such an underrated and powerful tool. I'd love to be able to use it with my font collections!

100% agree! I think Bridge would be the best place for a professional font management. Classes, Groups, Folders, Keywords, Tags and so on, of course accompanied by professional browsing features, hence the ability to see fonts in real and standard/sample contexts and so on.

I suggest to add diverse classical categories and other classes and keywords used by Adobe itself - Adobe would automatically classify an every font on our computer - and also offer a good way to create and customize our own classes as we need.

I also think that Bridge is a very important tool for CS users, but I really miss a professional font management. As I think: Bridge is the place for that!

Thanks, Michael

There are people out there like me who have many different fonts. Maybe a better way to organize them would make life easier. A simple star next to the font name for every font you like, or perhaps go even further than that.

Is there any plans to add Font Manager inside CS line
because my system starts work very slowly if there thousands of fonts installed, i assume what those fonts are only be used with Photoshop, I think it is time what adobe guys add this module in future releases!

P.s I also know what there is a lot of third party plugins and tools, but I think they are all needless, it should be in CS!

This would be such a big step forward!
Please add some kind of organising solution - or at least grouping - for fonts.

Thanks!

Every designer computer have thousands of kinds of fonts, each time you select a font is a very troublesome one thing.

Here I do a font rendering of classification. We think this kind of function if come true?

Maybe the Font panel in top bar should remain more or less the same.
It should list the fonts which are in a Category (Main Category).
In Character floating panel (or a new Font Manager panel) you should have options to connect to Lintoype FontExplorer or any other font manager and be able to manage font yourself. Activate, deactivate fonts of entire Font Collections (folder) and put them to Main Category.
Or they could implement some sort of mini Font Manager inside Adobe softwares (PS, Ai, ID etc)

CS6 Suggestion - Would like the ability to manage fonts. Organize the font list by something other than alphabetical. Often I like to arrange / use fonts by style - western, gothic, serif, fantasy etc. When working on a project I know what genre of font I want, but not the given name in the list necessarily.

Would love if fonts could be categorized - sans-serif, serif, special fonts, webdings, etc.

I think it would be a good idea to be able categorize my fonts folder.
being a professional web designer i have hundreds of fonts installed, sometimes i just want to search through pixel fonts, sometimes just serif fonts, the ability to create individual categories would be really useful.

come on who's with me?
