reload font library button

Registered by Victor Westmann on 2009-02-05

It would be awesome if a "reload font library button" existed because I am always testing new TrueType and OpenType fonts in Inkscape and I have to keep closing and reopening it only for the app to load my local font library. Is this button possible? It would be really lovely to have it. :)

Whiteboard

2012-05-27 Ran into this need myself. I have also needed this myself! +1 to this! TS

2016-10-01 VictorWestmann: maybe a small button (could be similar to a webbrowser refresh button) could be inserted inside the text dialog window for inkscape to take another look at fonts inside fonts folder in the operating system. Cheers!

2018-07-07 VictorWestmann: This is useful when you add / delete a font from your system. If we had a refresh fonts button we dould not need to close and reopen Inkscape for this. Just an idea.
