Too many god damn fonts 

Why are in word processors and always just a flat list that you need to scroll through using a hilariously small drop-down list? Every computer I've used since 1995 has had an absolutely stupid amount of fonts installed and I've never wanted to use more than like four of them.

When is someone going to make the UX of font selection a less tedious, bare-bones affair, like maybe first picking between serif and sans-serif, then narrowing down with another feature, or something like that? Can I get an OS-wide exclude list of "I will never use these fonts, never show them to me"?

@noni macOS font book kinda does this

@noni yes oh my god GIMP is literally the worst with this. There's like a thousand different dialects of Noto Sans I have to scroll through on my computer

Font Manager might be helpful:

@noni @bob Yeah, it could be much better. Someone should make a service which allows people to tag fonts with attributes. Something like discogs.com or themoviedb.org, but for fonts.
