I've been researching how to handle a font collection for use in Photoshop since the built-in tools are, politely phrased, rather limited.
The consensus seems to be that the best way is to use a third party font manager that operates on the OS level by installing/uninstalling fonts from a broader collection as required.
I've now installed MainType for Windows and uninstalled all fonts except for the seven system fonts that are protected. When I launch Photoshop, I still get a lot of clutter (30 to 40 fonts) that I don't want. They seem to be required for Photoshop to run.
Is there any way to remove these fonts from view? Especially since half of them are foreign types in Hebrew, Chinese, Arabic and Japanese which I will most likely never ever use.
If I'm going to rely on an extensive third party application to manage and select fonts, it would be nice if Photoshop would at least be clean of clutter.
