How to organize fonts on windows?

Post by Jensensen » Wed 22. Apr 2009, 00:09

WHY on windows I CAN'T ADD FOLDERS TO THE WIN/FONTS DIRECTORY?
This limitation is really subterraneously awful, I think! :twisted: :roll: :shock:

Does anybody know any tools for font management on windows? :?: :idea:
Thank you! :!:

...perhaps this is something similar to what you are searching for?

Thank you! Will try it... sounds good:
▪ Installation of fonts from a folder (one by one or from a list).
from a folder == of/into a folder? Let's see...
▪ Installation of fonts temporally (until the program is closed).
sounds even better.

BACKGROUND:
Think about you're working on a new layout and you need to TRY ONLY a number of more than 36 new fonts.

HOW can you efficiently try, delete, keep - manage THESE fonts?
In the end this means a lot of fiddle fummel file-by-file -- on WINDOWS === TIME CONSUMING / TIME WASTING!
UNBELIEVABLE!


I DON'T WANT to manage a list of file names ADDITIONALLY of each single, LASTLY added new font. But you'll need such a list when you want to delete a font that you don't like. This would mean: fiddle, fummel again.
I'd like to move a folder - try out - delete not wanted == GO.

I really have NO TIME to (fiddle) SEARCH FOR EACH and any ISOLATED font file in the WIN/FONTS [Stone Age] directory.
And I even don't want to remember all the file names of EACH of the TRY OUT FONTS.
But I don't want to waste the WIN/FONTS [Stone Age] directory.

Hi,

Jens. Why don't you rename your font files to XXX_font.ttf then copy them to C:\YourWinDir\Fonts.
If you want to delete them, sort your fonts by filename -> your tryout font should be on the end of the list :idea:

Good luck, Heiko...
