Need with Photoshop CS6 13.0 slow down when you use MANY fonts.


I have problems with my installation of Photoshop CS6 extended 13.0. I have a large collection of fonts (more than 9000 - no joke) and Photoshop slows down bad whenever I do something that requires the use of the fonts/typing/text handling. I tried to disable the font previews. Photoshop is still too slow. I found a related thread and have additional questions about my situation:

  • Is there a way to mitigate the slowdown in Photoshop when something related to fonts?
  • Will be updated to the latest version of CS6 help? I should even try to update?
  • I have to reduce the number of fonts activated? If so, what is a good number to aim for?
  • Any advice on the management of fonts? The thread mentions Typekit - I do not have a full subscription to CC. Other tools of management of good police (preferably free) that you can recommend?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

9000 fonts?  How many people have you used last year?

Not really sure what to tell you. Using a lot of fonts is a serious drain on system resources.  How long does Photoshop take to open?  Some time I think.

TypeKit used to be a wonderful resource, but it has become very limited, if you only plan to photograph, and it would do precisely nothing to the management of your 9000 fonts.  Not a garbage.

I used TypeDNA for awhile and well liked.

  • Photoshop Elements 5 freezes and restarts when you use Vista

    I have a little problem with Photoshop Elements 5. When I first start the program and click on 'File' system crashes. If I wait about 30 or 40 seconds, it retrieves all and then when to work them again together is very good. It's really very annoying when you start the program, and if someone else has had this problem and knows a difficulty, I would be very grateful.

    Already tried: -.

    Uninstalling and reinstalling

    Repair installation

    Unchecking Adobe Active File Monitor V5

    None of them worked. The problem seems to be related to the performance of Vista, everything worked fine on my old XP machine.

    Now, I use an Acer Aspire 5536 with Windows Vista installed as the operating system.

    Please make sure that you have installed the PES 5.0.2 patch

  • Need help to stop my Zoom to change when you use the integrated mouse

    I would like to know if anyone has a solution to my zoom change randomly when I use the built-in mouse. Is it possible to block the zoom so it does not change.

    Control the Touchpad settings in Control Panel.  My ASUS Netbook has a 'two fingers' feature that performs the zoom in things like IE and Word and it's pretty easy to operate inadvertently (another feature is two-finger scrolling, which I use frequently).  If your touchpad driver has such a feature, you may need off "awareness", it or turn it off.  Most modern/current notebook computer touchpad drivers have these characteristics, and many are turned on in different, often easy to do unintentionally, average.

  • Just downloaded trial Photoshop CS6.  How to start when NEVER used this type of software EVER?

    Downloaded the trial CS6 Photoshop to see if it is suitable to buy our before the application.  Having NO experience with this type of software, how do you start?  Must be something simple that I'm missing.  Cannot find how to insert picture/photo/text, or even to handle for the desired effect.  Help, please.  I did it for as much as opening a new file WOO HOO.

    Hello and welcome!

  • HP officejet 6500 a Plus E710N: slow printing when you use a wifi connection

    I have 2 wireless laptops connected to my printer, a job and a home, especially from my laptop to print job. This just started in the last days.  When I print, documents will start to print, pause, start, once again, stop and then back up to 3-4 minutes later the document will be printed.  I tried to connect the printer to a socket instead of using a surge protector.  In addition, just downloaded the latest driver and updates from HP.

    Thank you for your help


    The first thing you may want to check: ink levels. Looks like you need to buy inks very soon. The second thing: how busy is your wireless network? Please note: your router has a limit and if she is too busy, print job will be delayed or slower.

    Kind regards.

  • CC of Photoshop do not stick frames properly when you use the animation timeline.

    Someone had this problem where they want to copy and paste a picture or a picture on a previous one on the timeline art and it creates a new layer not video instead? It seems to me that after working with the file for some time. There is a logic to what I'm missing?

    I'm working on an animation "straight ahead" and need to juggle the frames around the calendar, and he won't let me paste it into my video layers. It just does not allow me to do. Others in my animation team have done this experience as well.

    I tried the customer and that they did not understand what I was describing.

    ANSWER: (From Brett)

    The problem is that you can not stick in a video layer framework that already has a kind of content inside. So, if you have already of this drawing on a given frame of a video layer, and then you try to stick in this layer, it will stick in a new layer instead. If this framework has no content yet or you clear the existing content, you can paste into this framework. If you come across a situation in which you cannot stick in the frame, you can select and delete the content, then paste will work.

    Brett has solved! I hope that Adobe treats this confusion between the restriction in the future, if there are workarounds.

    Many thanks, Brett!

    Hi denisb,

    If you are not able to open the Photos App images directly in Photoshop then, this is the expected behavior as App Photos does not allow for any third-party application interact with it directly.

    You must export images from the Photos App and then open in Photoshop.

  • I'm retouching of images taken on my iPhone 6 more with Photoshop CS6. I'm doing my color correction and add effects and all that. Before you export the image I review and be sure to what I has no more sharpness and the lines are smooth and it looks good

    I'm retouching of images taken on my iPhone 6 more with Photoshop CS6. I'm doing my color correction and add effects and all that. Before you export the image I review and be sure to what I has no more sharpness and the lines are smooth and it looks good overall. I export it to JPEG, max quality with the establishment of reference standards. I then open the image and it seems fine, as it did in photoshop. My problems begin to occur when I try to download on Twitter as my profile picture. I tried downloading from my office directly on the site via google chrome. When I download the image then begins to have jagged edges and overlooks the tablets. So I thought it was some performance settings, then I tweaked them and restarted a couple of times and still the same result. He would go on my desk but when uploaded to twitter as my profile picture is horrible. So I tried emailing the image of myself and the download through my phone. I opened the image on my iphone and it seemed fine as he did on my desktop but when I downloaded the image it makes then look blurry. I had this problem when downloading photos Twitter via my iphone, so it doesn't surprise me. I have read different forums saying: you must download it from the office, so I thought it would work like this. This could be a problem of twitter than compresses uploaded photos? Other people can do very much the same way, but it does not work for me. Please someone help me before I put my computer in an oven microwave.

    This could be a problem of twitter than compresses uploaded photos?

    Yes. The rest, we can answer. You wrote a lot, but very little discussion. Instead of accurate information you lose yourself in the vague descriptions. Screw color management to the wrong dimensions that trigger resizing server-side it could be any number of things here.


  • I bought a computer with Photoshop CS6 already installed, but I don't have serial number - can always transfer the software to a new computer?

    I currently have a MackBook with Photoshop CS6 installed. It came with the laptop when I bought it on eBay, so I don't have the serial number of the software. Can I still transfer Photoshop CS6 of this laptop to a new one?

    Thank you

    Who sold you the laptop should have deleted the software first or passed through the appropriate process to transfer the license to you. Chances are they used it to get an upgrade, in which case he would not still have to can be transferred.
