#3717 closed enhancement (fixed)

Remove "Fonts" tab from Fonts preferences applet

Unless I am missing something, the "Fonts" tab in the Fonts preferences applet (see attachment) does not seem to serve any purpose. If that is the case, it would make sense to remove it.

Fonts is missing under the Preferences component in Trac, so using User Interface instead; feel free to change.

I BeOS, the Fonts pref had the 'Fonts' tab and a 'Cache' tab. If a cache tab, or another font utility is to added at some point in the future, it might be more economical to leave it as it is.

That would make sense. If that will be in fact the case, perhaps this bug report can then be closed.

There will be more options in the future, like configuring overlays and such. When the Font preflet is rewritten to use the layout-management (some work is being done), then it would be easy to comment out the tab-view in the layout tree for now. Leaving this ticket open until then...

I implemented this suggestion in hrev30594. It will be easy to revert to the tabView when more tabs are needed in the future.
