Moving fonts between OS 9 and Classic 9 System
Today I noticed a bug (feature?) in the manner in which Classic 9 handles fonts added to its system folder. Theoretically, this should work just as it does in OS 9 - drag the font into the Fonts folder, and any non-running application that is then launched will see the new font. In copying over a number of fonts from my 'real' OS 9 to my 'Classic' OS 9 today, I noticed that they weren't seen when I launched my Classic application. After a bit of troubleshooting, I found the answer.

To make the fonts usable, I had to restart Classic, not just the apps running within Classic. Once I restarted Classic, I had all my new fonts available. I can't decide if this is a bug, or a limitation of how Classic works. In either event, install the fonts first, then launch Classic to save yourself a Classic restart (at least, that's how my machine is working!).
