Font Redirectory

Current version: 1.0
Freeware
Requires Apple IIgs System 6.0.1

Font Redirectory lets you change the directory from which fonts are loaded by the Font Manager. You can move your Fonts folder to another hard disk, even -- even an HFS-formatted one, so you can use longer, more useful file names for your fonts.

The caveat is that the new name for the Fonts folder has to be exactly 15 characters. For example, ":My.Disk:Fontsy" is 15 characters long. This restriction is due to the way the Font Manager works internally.

This is a way you can use a ton of fonts that take up a lot of disk space, without filling your entire boot disk with them.
