Feature Request: option to prebuild cache of previews

Postby hlff » Sat Dec 17, 2016 8:50 pm

Hello,

In my line of work, speed of delivery is very important.

The MainType interface is high-performance, but I find that I often have to wait several seconds when scrolling through a font list for the previews to be rendered.

I would like an option which allows the program to pre-build and cache all previews for the current font list. That way, I could simply activate that feature, move on to something else, and then scroll through the font list without having to wait for any rendering at all.

We've thought about this, but there are numerous disadvantages so we've decided to stick with the current implementation.

It would take a lot of time to implement, and even then, such feature will cause more problems and delays.
