How do you change Sort default

Post by greenie19 » Wed Apr 13, 2011 9:46 am

Hi there,

I was trying out this software and I was wondering if it's possible to change the Sort default. Right now when you click on it to change it to something else, "By File Name (Default)" is always at the top. I'd like to be able to set "By Font Name" as the default, is there a way to do that?

The file name sort order is the default in version 10 and earlier versions of FontExpert, because sorting by font name requires gathering additional information from all fonts in the list (requires reading font name from all font files). So if you preview folders with hundreds or thousands of fonts it could be annoying to get a message "Gathering font information, please wait...." every time you select a new folder. (FontExpert needs font names of all fonts before it can prepare a sorted list.)

But we are planning to implement this feature (saving sort order) in the following version of FontExpert.
