|Summary||0009990: Feature request to easily edit font list display|
|Description||The idea would be to have a dialog for fonts with some of the features of Edit Colors, with the capability to work with a reduced set of fonts.|
Potential features might include:
Ability to add/delete individual fonts from list (not from system)
Import a font list from another document (± warning if a font not on system)
This is not the same though has some overlap with Styles. Here we are just talking about a way to reduce the size of the selection list which shows up in various locations in Scribus, such as the Text tab of Properties or in the Edit Styles dialog.
|Additional Information||This is based on a complaint by Louis Desjardins at LGM 2011 about the challenge of working on a document when you may have hundreds or more fonts on your system, yet generally are only going to use a few.|
yes this would be great. Actually i do this by editting checkfont.xml but it could be easier ;) I've already tried to do some research on it but internal for fonts are understandable to me. First i dea i had was :
1. add an deselect all fonts in font>preferences (add check all fonts too :) ), the user could just then reactivate the one he'd like from here or fom font preview
2. optionnally : transparently reset font list without having to relaunch scribus
||Another possible solution could be option to show only fonts used in document, but in Style Editor all fonts should be available (if not disabled in preferences).|
||See this clip: https://vimeo.com/94580770#t=2m44s explaining it took him '45 minutes' to go through the process of unchecking fonts.|
What about different font lists for different projects - like you can do with colors?
Or a favourite list and a more-button?
So you could get one or more short lists and if you need another font, you get the whole fonts. (And the possibility to add this font to favourites or a project if you notice that you need it more often.)
would something like this be a solution: https://giphy.com/gifs/3oKIPpYKwhgqKZlL9K/fullscreen
I could make and submit a patch for that.

djfun, this is nice work. The users would need it. I hope the others agree with me.
||I guess what this is showing is using the Shift key to highlight and then Select/Deselect?|
