Want CorelDRAW Speed? Uninstall Fonts!
How many is too many? The definition can vary. What is very clear is that the fewer the number of fonts, the faster the system will run. I like to use 200 fonts as a maximum. This doesn't mean that you can't have more fonts on your hard drive. As an example, I have at least 15,000 fonts on my computer. The key is that you install install the fonts you need at the current time. Using the Bitstream Font Navigator utility supplied with CorelDRAW can help with font management. A great alternative is the Font Expert utility that I wrote about in March 2010. Not only will you find that your system runs faster, your font menus will be much shorter so that it is easier to font the font you need.
