feature request: File Path column in main fonts view

Post by hlff »

Please add File Path as an optional column in the main fonts view.

This would show the full path and filename of the font.

This has been requested before, but a font file can be in hundreds of folders.

Excellent point.

Perhaps in the situation where an identical font exists in multiple folders, the proposed column would show:
"Font exists in multiple paths. Click here to view list."
If the user clicked, a list would pop up showing the various locations, which could be selectable for copy/paste.

Since more people have requested this, we will consider it.

That is already how contextual menu item "Open Containing Folder" works if the font is located in more than one resource.
