Clear Recently Added Font List

Post by jpeni » Sun Apr 19, 2020 10:36 pm

How do I clear the "Recently Added" list in MainType?

Your program requires the user to add a Font Folder even if they only want to display and evaluate a font.
Once this temporary font is no longer needed - they have to DELETE the font's Font Folder.
The temporary font remains in the "Recently Added" list.

Since I open some fonts just for display and evaluation - how can I permanently remove unwanted fonts from the "Recently Added" list? I know you can individually DELETE the fonts from the list, but it would be useful to be able to CLEAR all fonts from the "Recently Added" list when temporarily displaying fonts.


P.S. It would be helpful if MainType allowed viewing, displaying and evaluating single fonts without the
font being listed in the font Folders lists.

I understand your point, but MainType is designed to work this way.

The only way is to select the fonts you no longer want (be it from the Recently Added view, or any other view or group), and delete from known file systems and MainType.
