Customize your font collections

The fonts in the Fonts window are grouped into collections of similar fonts, such as “fun” fonts and fixed-width fonts. You can change these collections, or create your own collections to make specific fonts easier to find.

  1. If the Fonts window isn’t already open, open an application, and then open the Fonts window. In most applications, you can open the Fonts window by choosing Format > Font > Show Fonts or Format > Show Fonts.
  2. Do any of the following:
    • To create a new font collection, click the Add button (+) below the Collection column, and then type a name for it.

    • To add a font to a collection, drag a font family or typeface to the collection in the Collection column.

    • To remove a font from a collection, drag it out of the Fonts window.

      Removing a font from a collection doesn’t remove the font from your computer.

    • To delete a font collection, select it and click the Delete button (–) below the Collection column.

For more options for working with fonts, open Font Book.
