I do not use Google fonts because of privacy issues in Germany. All fonts used in my projects are installed locally on the clients webserver.
The way Blocs now handles local fonts is you have to install them globally using the font manager in the preferences menu. This is OK if you only have a few fonts installed, but it can get a bit cumbersome if you have 20-30 local fonts installed globally. It takes some time to scroll through the list when setting up the fonts for a specific project. Also this can cause organisational problems - esp. if your a chaotic person like me
SO my wish/suggestion is:
- Add local fonts on a per project basis. When a project is opened, only the fonts added to that project will be linked and shown.
- When a project is packaged and exported, export the local fonts associated with that project - much the same way as Adobe InDesign does. This is an added security, in case you delete the original font from your local drive (idiot proofing 4 me
That’s all for now
