I have 550+ fonts installed in my Windows 7, which is annoying, because they all are appear in Adobe Illustrator font's menue. Its really difficult to find appropriate fonts when it needed, also i am scared to add new fonts. Is there any safe way to delete redundant fonts and group new fonts (may be as folders)? Thank you.
One solution might be to check out an external font manager, such as NexusFont, which lets you "enable" fonts as you need them while otherwise keeping them hidden (say you're working on a project that needs a handwritten font - you can enable all the fonts tagged "handwriting", and then they'll appear in your font menus in other programs - then you can disable them once you're done with the project).
