Reviving an old thread. I think the free version of Font Explorer is about done. We are on Mac OS Sierra now and while it runs when you open fonts now...after a reboot they are no longer open and our designers have to go back and open them again. It's like living in a third world country for them. Anyone else seen this problem and have a fix? Or a better free font program. (Suggestions to buy the new version of Font Explorer will be met with laughter)


Yep, same deal here, was going to start a new topic but found one. I will continue ready this post because God-forbid we have to pay for something here.

I did find the fix for this. Open System Preferences ===> Users & Groups =====>  Login Items. Then drag the file "/Users/~/Library/Application Support/Linotype/FontExplorer X/FontExplorerXAutoload" into the "These items will open automatically when you log in" box.

So that's not FEX related then I am guessing.

Well it wasn't a FEX problem with the version prior to InDesign 2017 and since FEX hasn't been updated in years I am blaming Adobe. My guess is Adobe would disagree with me.
