    I have 567 fonts in Windows, and have had more. (I’m a designer among other things, and collect fonts.)

    This issue also bit Mozilla, as MS library code in Windows builds was tediously enumerating fonts, which did nasty things to Firefox load speed on Windows. Mozilla had an open ticket with MS about it. IIRC, the same issue bit Chrome. (I don’t recall the resolution, and would have to poke around in Bugzilla to see what was done.)

    If you want to do a build that skips the font list build, I’ll test it. It might be best to skip the enumeration on load, and only do it if an operation that uses font requires it.

    Hello, I just noticed that the latest post on the Forum was posted on 28 September last year. Is the development of Wordtsar still progressing?

      Yes, still active, though slowed down a bit. I use it everyday.

      What is slowing things down right now is a re-vamp of the core routines to make them thread safe. The current version has an issue where if (for example) you turn on line spacing:

      .ls 2

      The screen is immediately updated with the line spacing. However, the page count doesn’t increase, because WordTsar only updates the current view, not the document. So, I need to background thread the document formatting stuff.

      It’s not as easy as it sounds, since all GUI work under Windows must be done in the main process, not in threads. Figuring out font sizes (which is, of course, critical in layout) is considerred GUI work.

      I’m getting there, but need a bit of patience.

      I think what I’ll be doing is moving the current WordTsar binaries to a more public place, let more people download and use it as it currently stands.
