I’ve had nothing but problems since purchasing SF6, which I will try to outline below:
I work primarily in Photoshop CS5 on a late 2009 27-in. iMac
3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
12 GB Memory
Was running Snow Leapard when I first purchased SF6, but have since upgraded to El Capitan 10.11.4 - I was having some issues running the old OS, and while upgrading to El Capitan fixed some things, it has had no effect on SF6 issues I’m having. Same problems before and after the upgrade.
• Opening Photoshop is very sluggish now. The Extensis window within Photoshop shows ‘thinking’ while loading fonts, then when individual font list shows up, there is a spinning icon next to each font name indicating that it is ‘thinking’ or trying to load or activate fonts. Photoshop takes approximately a full minute to open now. This was not an issue when I was running Fontbook/before installing SF6. See attached screenshots:
• Once I open a photoshop file with any text layers, each text layer within the layers pallet always has the yellow icon with an exclamation point in it, indicating a missing font.
• Every time I click on a text layer in the layers pallet, all of the fonts in the Extensis window have the ‘thinking’ or ‘loading’ icon next to them just like when I first started the program, and I have to wait 30 seconds or so before this stops and I can actually double-click the layer and edit the type. If I have multiple font layers that all need to be edited, I have to go through this process every single time (even if all text layers are using the exact same font).
I am this close to deleting this program and going back to Fontbook, but would like to figure this out so I’m not wasting the money I spent on SF6. Almost impossible to work this way though… Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. I’ve got a total of about 5,500 fonts by the way - I pulled them all off of my backup drive and loaded straight into SF6, allowing SF6 to copy them into whatever storage folder it uses…
