Summary0005643: Activation of freshly installed fonts without app restart
Description(Hope I'm getting this right, using Mantis for the first time...) Feature request: while using an external font mananger to choose a particular font or font set, it would be very useful, if doable, to be able to send some kind of a signal to Scribus telling it to refresh its font list after the font/font set is installed. As far as I can tell, Windows and Mac font managers can do it for InDesign and other soft, and even if they cannot, it would still be a great feature.
TagsNo tags attached.

From 0005846 comment 0005846:0017009
You should read note attached to 0005873 (specifically: 0005873:0016753) which give some tips. Here are others :
1) Scribus scans for fonts :
       a) on startup
       b) when deleting or add font folder in preferences with *no* doc open
2) Scribus does not use system font cache (ie system memory resident fonts)
3) Consequently any font management performed with a third party tool while scribus is opened won't be taken into account before scribus is restarted (0005643)
