Cyrillic and Greek: sort out

Post by Wird »

Hello,
is it possible to sort out (from the Font Library/Groups) only those fonts, that support Greek and/or Cyrillic?
If not, would you consider to add such an option?

It would be very helpful, as my Library is quite huge and sometimes I need to search just for fonts with extensive multilingual support.

Please let me know,
Vit

No, but you can use a specific preview text which will show what fonts support it. This screenshot uses some Hebrew text:

Just be sure the "Show preview with missing characters in red" option is enabled.

Hello Erwin,
this is unfortunately not very helpful:

1) Let say I have 5000 fonts, but only 250 of them support Latin+Greek+Cyrillic (and I don't know which exactly)
This is not very pleasant way to find them.

2) The specific preview text - as you suggest is also not working very well:
It highlights "red" even the texts which are not substitued and therefore should be "black"

For now we do not have plans to add support for your request.

I understand, but that is the best for now. You could of course manually add tags to your fonts, so you can later use them to search for fonts supporting specific languages.

It is by design, as that way it is not easy to overlook.
