What is FatFontMenu?

FastFontMenu is a Control Panel which speeds up the building of the Font Menu in most applications. It does this by sorting the font names in an internal array, rather than insertion sorting them in the menu the way older versions of the MacOS did . It also caches the list. This has two benefits. The first is that it'll be MUCH faster for every font menu after the first, as long as your fonts haven't changed (applications that have fonts in their resource forks will clobber the caching, but they've been warned not to do that by Apple's Developer Support for more than seven years). The second benefit is that after the first time, the memory requirements of FFM are much smaller. If you were seeing problems in a control panel or desk accessory, you should no longer see them as long as you've run anapplication that builds a font menu first.
