• Show Group entries in "Columns"

Post by Brother Gabriel-Marie »

Hello!

I think it would be nice if in the Columns view you could see what groups each font belongs to. I used a program called (freeware) "AMP Font Viewer" which would tell you which of your fonts was NOT assigned to a group. That was REALLY handy. Perhaps the Column would tell me which Groups each font belonged to.

Thanks!

I second this feature request very much.

I am trying to organise my fonts into groups. Being able to display a 'Groups' column in the Active and Browse tabs in the Fonts pane would allows users to:

--confirm that a fonts is already categorised into a group(s)
--identify uncategorised fonts
--sort fonts by group

Please would you consider this for the next version of MainType?

This request sounds really useful, so we certainly try to include it in a future release.

Hello, y'all! I hope nobody has forgotten about this idea! I still don't see it in Build 417.

There's now a Groups column that says whether or not a font is included in a group or not.

There is also a column for Tags, which will show a list of all tags that have been applied to a font, so I think we can say that this request has been implemented.
