Okay, maybe this should be multiple enhancement requests, but they all have to do with the font handling.
1. Activate/Deactivate: allow an added font directory to be "deactivated". In such a case the fonts would not be listed in the font menus/dialogs, though if used and such text is selected the font would be listed at the top of the font menu as it is now with a non-available style.
2. Auto-Activation (of fonts): proposed default behavior is that loading a document with a font in a deactivated directory does not add the font to the font menus/dialogs, but this behavior would be controlled in the font preferences. Three options: auto-activate just the font (a used font is listed in the font menus/dialogs, but none of its compadres stored in the same font directory), the entire font directory or no auto-activation.
3. Detection of font-in-use removal: before actually removing a font directory check to see if a contained font is in use by any open document. If it is give a warning (PageStream has detected that the following documents [...] use one or more of the fonts [...]. Do you really want to remove this font directory? [Yes] [No]). If the font directory is to be removed popup the Font Replacement requester and handle the fonts that way so that the PageStream won't crash trying to render a non-present font.
4. Preferences option to group or submenu fonts by font directory (using the containing directory as the name). This allows font manager-like access to fonts. For example, I have font directories Arabic, Runic, Sans Serif, etc. This would allow easy drilling down to the font I wanted rather than wading through a long list. I see 'Grouping' as being sorted by group then name with group names as separators.
