Classic OS: Is there Switch about Font List, WYSIWYG vs Plain mode?

Hello everyone!  

Switch about WSYISYG Fonts View:

My question is for Classic Mac OS 8, and I am afraid of this question about old system.   But I can't figure it out by myself, so I decided to post here.  
When I am using SimpleText, ClarisWork4, and QuakrExpress4.1, Fonts are listed as rendered way (What-you-see-is-what-you-get = WYSIWYG).   It is convenient but when I use many different Fonts, it consumes memory-power.   So, depend on the situation, I want to turn it off to the Plain mode.   Is there any way to do that?   Thank you!     Mitsuru

Hi mkido,
       What you are wanting to do is FONT Management.  There are programs that do this for you, or you can do it yourself.   If you do it yourself, you would remove Fonts that you do not use often or at all from the FONTS folder and place them in a disabledFONTS folder or something, so if you do need one of them at some point you can move it back in.
     However, it is easier with a FONT Manager tool.
Here is a Shareware program

and if you can find a version of Extensis Suitcase 8  that is known as being a good application.

     However, to answer your question directly,   I do not know of anyway to turn off WYSIWYG in programs individually.

Thank you, sqatuart!  

I will look at your suggested link tomorrow.   I have Extensis Suitcase 8, but I haven't found the switch of ON-OFF about WYSIWYG.   It sounds this feature is integrated in Application Program.   Some show WYSIWYG, some don't;  some may have Switch, some may not have Switch.   This is my current impression.   Bye now.

I close now.   I think my understanding is probably true.   WYSIWYG is integrated into Application software, and it all depend on it.   Many may not allow the switch.    This switch doesn't appear to be at OS level.     Thank you for the link.
