Is there a way to sort fonts inside Photoshop, as "serif," "sans-serif," "script," etc.?


In my years as a graphic designer (and now web designer and developer), I've acquired a great number of fonts. I've deleted quite a few, but I still have over 800 fonts. Needless to say, I don't use many of them.

I'm looking to delete a lot of my fonts, and a way to organize (inside Photoshop) the ones that remain as:

  • Serif
  • Sans-serif
  • Script
  • etc...

I'm curious if this is possible. One idea I had was to rename the fonts, e.g. Times New Roman to Serif - Times New Roman, but I imagine this would cause more problems than it would solve.

I'd appreciate any insight — thank you!

Edit: I initially asked this question as a Windows user. I ended up using Font Explorer X Pro after moving to OSX, where I now manage a much smaller collection.

I'd still love a way to label/sort fonts serif, sans-serif, slab, script, et al. inside photoshop!

Photoshop organize fonts into a convenient alphanumerical listing,as our window do,if you want to sort fonts the way you like, you have to get a Font management software such as extensis suitcase, you can organize your fonts into folders / categories or whatever and then use them.

where ever i know there's still no way to organise within programs.
