Description steve.sottong 2020-09-07 15:44:56 UTC
The Libreoffice installer adds something like 50 fonts to Windows. For people who don't want those fonts, it's an intrusion. I end up deleting them. Couldn't installing the fonts be made optional? Or an installer without the fonts be offered? The latter would be a great benefit since it would mean a much smaller download with a shorter install time. Please consider this. I don't always update because I'll have to then go back and delete the unwanted fonts.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the update
2.Go to the control panel and remove all the fonts the installer just shoved in

Actual Results:
About 100 unwanted fonts

Expected Results:
100 unwanted fonts

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
If you make the fonts optional, a shorter install time and no unwanted fonts. Better yet, an installer without fonts for a much shorter download time and shorter install time.
