Hello everyone I need to know how to manage my 6500 fonts (including families) - "and yes I like them all"

Is there a way to see them even deactivated on some softwares like Photoshop/ Illustrator and InDesign? Because every time I reopen them they seem to crash every time I try to use the type tool.. I though about converting them into some other type of files like vectors but it would be hard to work with that, I think..

Anyone??

p.s.the worst thing is when we "deactivate" them they stop showing on the softwares like Photoshop and so on, I'm gonna have to create a suitcase for them

To “manage” large numbers of fonts, you really need to license a third party font management tool. (Although Adobe once provided a product in this area, Adobe Type Manager, Adobe no longer provides any such products.)

However, the idea of a font manager is to avoid the situation where non-activated fonts show up in application font menus. In your particular case, the idea of a list of 6500 fonts (or even half that) in every font menu is mind-boggling. Typical font management tools do provide a mechanism to view all the fonts in its own environment and let you activate and deactivate fonts per your needs.

Bottom line, what you are asking for is not possible with font management tools and what you are really asking for is the ability of Adobe applications (and/or even the underlying operating systems) to accommodate exceptionally large numbers of fonts concurrently installed.
