Ok, so I went through my list, followed your instructions, and now I'm down to 49 fonts which I believe are new in Lion. Rather than type them all again, I'm going to post this screenshot:

I had neither of those two fonts (Raanana and New Peninim) in my clean install of Snow Leopard. They only appeared since installing Lion.


I specifically want to know, which Fonts are new to Lion and didn't come with Snow Leopard. I think my list of 49 is pretty accurate.

I don't know why your SL install would be missing them. These two Hebrew fonts have been standard in OS X since at least 10.3 and installed by default since 10.4

They are also on the non-Apple list of 10.6 fonts (optionally not installed) at

May I add-on?



It seems to me that the list of required fonts grows with each new version of MacOS, and thus the number of fonts visible in app font menus.


(I think "required" =~ the set of fonts that Font Book refuses to disable, yes?)


My preference is to have the absolute minimum number of fonts enabled, because that's all I use. Some apps get a bit balky when called upon to display a huge, long list of fonts.


Taking care to leave alone the totally mandatory fonts, currently


Geneva.dfont

Helvetica.dfont

HelveticaNeue.dfont

HelveticaNeueDeskUI.ttc

Keyboard.ttf

LastResort.ttf

LucidaGrande.ttc

Monaco.dfont


in the past I have used the command line and sudo to move fonts I really can't imagine needing out of the system font folder to an archive location, but this gets a bit tedious, and I'm not quite certain what I'm risking.


Is there a better way?


Alternative wayof asking: No offense intended to the speakers of these languages, but I have no conceivable use for the Arabic, Pashto, Persian, and Urdu characters in the Geeza Pro font. Why can I not at disable it?


TIA

Hi Hen3ry,


I've written a long article on fonts, the first part of which is a list of minimum fonts in each version of OS X from 10.3.x forward. baltwo linked to it in the second post of this thread.


As you found, there are certainly more fonts that Apple/Font Book consider "required" which are not. Braille? Not having any problem with my vision, why would I need those? Any of the Asian Kanji fonts? No use to me.
