Custom View for "not grouped"

Post by nancygail » Sat Nov 17, 2018 4:04 pm

Hello!

I would like to set a custom view that shows only the fonts that are NOT in a group. Is there a way to do this? This would then allow me to sort by name while I'm in the organizing phase. I know I have a column that shows yes or no if they are grouped... I've used that but I can't sort by that and also alphabetically. I actually just finally purchased the software thinking that would be an option in custom view... should have looked that up first.

Thanks!
Nancy

  1. Create a new tag named "Ungrouped"
  2. Sort your fonts by grouping
  3. Tagged the ungrouped fonts
  4. Create a new view for fonts tagged as "Ungrouped."

There is also a predefined view named Ungrouped Fonts.

Yes, it is still there in the free version. It is not a custom view, but a default view.
