Did you know that you could organise your font in subfolders now ? While testing Font Agent Pro vs Font Reserve this weekend, I accidentally dropped a folder of fonts in the
~/Library/Fonts/ and to my big surprise, their appeared in the available font list.
I checked MacOSXHints.com, and the hint was posted last August (hum, better late than never I guess).
Anyway, I thought I'd let you know, might come in useful to those of you who don't use a font management system.
Hide (or display) certain root folders
The other thing I discovered was how to hide certain directories you'd rather not see in you root directory. There's a hidden file called
.hidden at the root of your disk. If you open it, you'll notice a list of directory names. Simply add those you'd rather not see listed (such as
Temporary Items or
sw e.g.), and they'll be hidden at the next Finder launch.
