Chapter in this post:
When moving to a new Mac, you can usually use the migration assistant or manually move the files if you want to do a "clean install". This is recommended if the Mac has simply been migrated again and again over the years and then strange failures and crashes interfere with work at irregular intervals. One point that can be very annoying when reinstalling is the installation of all the fonts that were previously installed on the old Mac OS X.
Der laut Apple support page Not only can you install individual fonts with the Font Collection utility, you can also install complete folders with multiple fonts. This then saves the many mouse clicks that would otherwise have to be done with the manual method (as in the screenshot above).
Here, too, the Apple site can help:
The font collection is located in the Applications folder (in the Finder "Go" > "Programs"). To manage or view fonts, open Font Book or double-click a font file.
You can also use the font set to install one or more fonts. From the File menu, choose Add Fonts, select the font or a folder that contains multiple fonts, and then click Open to install the font (s).
After installing the fonts you definitely have to restart the Mac. Otherwise it will not display the newly installed fonts in the programs in which you want to use them: Adobe Indesign, Photoshop or other software that you may be using.
Another tip: If, despite everything, you accidentally open as many windows as above, then you can close them all at once. To do this, hold down the ALT key and then close one of the windows. Immediately after the click, all other windows should go too.
