If you spend a lot of time getting creative and using Mac fonts you may find yourself using certain fancy fonts often, but rarely give the time of day to others.
When you search for your fonts in the ‘All Fonts’ section the styles are displayed alphabetically. Now you may have a few fonts you love to use that are at totally different ends of the alphabet such as Arial and Time New Roman. Instead of constantly navigating your way up and down the scale, why not make life blissfully easy and put them in a font collection. So in the future when you reach out to use your favourite old font you can just click on your category and select it in no time.
