Windows 7: Install fonts dialog

15 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Install fonts dialog

For fonts with filenames that are the same as the font name the new method is great.

The problem is that alot of old fonts have filenames which don't tell you much about the name of the font. Not having the dialog doesn't allow you to see the actual font name for those fonts before installing.
I have alot of old fonts like this and clicking on each one to find out if it's the one I'm looking for is extremely time consuming, e.g. I have a folder full of fonts where the filenames are: 0035A___.pfm, 0036A___.pfm etc. for Bodoni. Without the dialog there is no way to know what the font is unless I click separately on each one - and there are hundreds like this.

Do you know of a way to get back the dialog?
