Re: Can I cache only particular fonts from WINDOWSFONTDIR

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Akira,

Thanks for this timely response. For example I would like to cache only Segoe UI and Tahoma fonts not the whole WINDOWSFONTDIR. Or more generally the question is - is there a way to cache only a given subset of fonts that reside in WINDOWSFONTDIR? The thing is that caching the whole WINDOWSFONTDIR is time consuming and I use only several fonts from it so I don't need all those fonts cached...

I've noticed that when I blacklist several fonts the cache file size remains the same. So I guess that whole WINDOWSFONTDIR is cached every time and then the black list filter is applied. So seems like there is no way to not cache the whole WINDOWSFONTDIR...
