I have over 1000 fonts and not the room to store them all on the home drive
I use a mac running OSX (snow leopard) so I moved some fonts to an external drive.

Now what is the best way to use these fonts with inkscape - currently have 0.48 but use 0.47 now & then with my black cat cougar electronic die cutter
A short term solution is I drag the font I want to my fonts folder but it would be nice if I could access the external drive fonts from within inkscape as I don't always know what font I want until I am part way into the design.

Can I do this or am I just going to have to either bog down the system with the fonts or drag them over as I need them and re-start inkscape every time?
