Windows hidden Fonts are visible!

Recommended Posts

Hello ...

Windows has the option to hide the installed fonts ..

they are installed but you can not choose them from any list!

 

But in Photo and Designer every installed Font gets listed.

I think that "Windows" has a good solution by hiding all unwanted fonts ... without the need to uninstall those fonts. On Mac Os you dont have that option as far as I know. 
But this feature is not supported / ignored by many application.

A extra filter in the drop down menu would be great!

The reason it's unsupported / ignored by most applications, is that we ask Windows for a list of fonts, and it gives us all of them, including those hidden ones. It would make more sense if Windows didn't return those fonts to us, then every application would automatically support the feature. I'll see if there is a flag we can check on the fonts to see whether they are hidden.
