Same here. It currently takes about a minute to load on my Iyonix - but I
do have several 1000 fonts - and no I can't cut down on them because I use
a lot of them for editing different files I've created over the years.
How about using the !Fonts1 thing? I've had it for years, and
little-used fonts lurk in appropriately named fonts directories, to be
called on when needed. I've had
for so long they've still got short names. Checking the BASIC file,
ExtraFont, inside the applications, it says:
REM > ExtraFont
REM Alistair Shimmin 04jun91
REM ©SJ Research 1991
REM Version 0.02
So as far as copyright goes I've no idea. Alistair has been Alice for
more than a decade, and SJ have gone the way of all flesh. My memory
tells me it was covered by a "sure, pass it around" licence, but I've
not got that in writing.
Original purpose was to stop Nexus getting trashed by massive loads of
fonts at startup, which is where we came in, really.
