Font managers?

Hello there. I have such headaches when it comes to fonts. I have tried using Suitcase Fusion (long ago) and RightFont to manage my fonts. Both of them have been glitchy and very hard to use and need constant upkeep and troubleshooting. Right now, I'm using Rightfont and it's terrible. I need to find a new font manager, but not sure where to turn. I liked how Rightfont automatically activated any fonts in my Adobe programs whenever I opened a document without me having to manually turn them on. I'd love one that does that. Everyone seems to use Suitcase Fusion. I have an Apple computer, btw. Perhaps it has improved over the past 5 or so years since I've used it? I'd love to hear what other mac users use and have success with...

Thanks!

It's lives comfortably with Adobe cloud fonts as well. That being said, their tech support on...

Suitcase Fusion would be my recommendation for a dedicated font management utility, it works with local, Adobe CC, Google fonts, etc.

FWIW when Font Book added the ability to create collections, working with customers fonts, or large sets of internal fonts was much easier.
