• Core Font Protection

Post by MikeW » Sat Feb 15, 2014 7:17 pm

Like FontExplorer, it would be nice if core Windows fonts could be locked or indicated by a color. Maybe even have the option to hide them.

Maybe the ability to lock fonts of one's own choosing would also be a good feature.

Nice request.

I'll add this to the to-do list for now.

If other users of our font manager like this feature, or have a similar request, do let us know!

I think its' an important feature to add. However, it should be possible to override the lock though in some way.

MainType now identifies these as system fonts, and doesn't permit them to be uninstalled, unloaded, or deleted.

Arial, Calibri, Cambria, Consolas, Courier New, Georgia, Marlett, Segoe UI, Segoe UI Symbol, Tahoma, Times New Roman, Verdana
