Slow font searching


#1

hi,

I wonder that why a simple searching function takes long time? for example, when a font name entered to search box, searching takes 20 sec in 70K font. is there any explanation for that?

thanks

70,000 fonts is a LOT of fonts to have in Suitcase. 20s seems reasonable for a library of that size.

You may want to try disabling the Group Fonts by Family view in the font pane by disabling it in the View menu or use Command + E. This might speed it up a little but may not make much of a difference for 70,000 fonts.

Wow, thanks. On our system, with 12,000 fonts this made a huge improvement. Before turning off ‘Group fonts by Family’ smart sets were practically unusable. Now it’s snappy.

Hi,
Good tip, really useful for us.

Did someone know more about this ? Romeo ?

Is Extensis working on this issue ?
