Dog slow


I just upgraded to 5, and still have a problem where the app just runs dog slow. Simply trying to delete a font can bring up a rainbow cursor for up to 10 secs. A search to find dupes takes forever.

Running Mavericks, have about 10,000 fonts in the collection. Any ideas? Any way to optimize the database?


Hi 605Dave,

I would recommend that you follow the steps in this KB article:

Suitcase should run a lot faster once your done.


Thanks for the tip, but I already did all of those steps. I will try them again.


Try also turning off ‘Group fonts by Family’ — this made a huge improvement for me.


Thanks for the tip, will try it out.
