Maximum number of fonts in Worklist?

Post by Michael Fero » Fri Jun 02, 2006 4:54 pm

I run the "find fonts" utility and save the results as a worklist . . . so far so good.

However, when I attempt to load said worklist on another occasion, the application locks up and I generally close it down.

One time, when I was going to be out of the office, I let it load unimpeded and upon my return it was okay.

My question: Is there a maximum number of fonts or a recommended number of fonts which the worklist can reasonably accomodate (i.e., doesn't take forever to load?

TIA

There is no limit to a number of files you can save to worklist file. Worklist is saved to an XML file (text file of very simple format). The only limit is free memory, as XML files when parsed are completely preloaded to memory. The problem you described is a bug report for us, and we will test it further with huge number of files in the worklist (and saved/opened to/from XML). Thanks!
