In Font Book, what are the collections?

In Font Book, on the far left, there is a "Collection" column that contains three main collections called All Fonts, User and Computer.

All Fonts: This collection contains a list of all fonts on the system that exist in a usable font directory (~/Library/Fonts, /Library/Fonts, or /System/Library/Fonts - "~" means "in the active user's home folder," so, if we're talking about John Doe, short name "jdoe," they would be inside the Fonts folder inside jdoe's Library folder).This includes fonts that are available to everyone on the computer and fonts that are available only to you.They are in there folders:

  • /Library/Fonts
  • /System/ Library/Fonts
  • ~/Library/Fonts

User: This collection contains all fonts in the current user's home (if you were John Doe, your home named "jdoe," this would be all the fonts in the Fonts folder in your Library folder. These are fonts only available to you. They are in this folder:

  • ~/Library/Fonts

Computer: This collection contains all fonts that are available to all users who use this computer.Fonts in your home are NOT displayed here. They are in these folders:

  • /Library/Fonts
  • /System/ Library/Fonts

The other font collections are as their name implies (especially the Fun collection). If you use the plus ("+") button, you can add your own collections. You must drag fonts from your User collection to the new collections you make.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It's easy to quickly build up a large list of fonts activated in your FontBook application. Every time you log in or out of your MacBook, all of those fonts have to initialize. So if you have a lot, it can take a long time to log in or for your computer to start up. Take some time to occasionally prune your list of activated fonts.
