Re: Can I cache only particular fonts from WINDOWSFONTDIR

Sorry for the late reply.

I'm afraid there is no way to do it. because we don't know much
detailed information without reading metadata in fonts. If there is
something we can do for, that may be to implement excluding particular
fonts by filename and directory name even if it is in the target fonts
directories for caching. However, I'm concerned if it may introduce
some confusion.

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...
