I would appreciate some more refinements for the indicators
in the tiny font description line below the user text:

- The font location folder
- the size of the ttf file
- the date of font creation
- Is the font currently installed?
- If the font is installed: Is the font entered in the registry
AND in the windows font table or are there inconsistencies?
- When I right click on a certain font the context menu offers
Load AND Unload resp. Install/Uninstall.
It would be more helpful if only this context menu is
displayed which is possible. For example an already installed font is only uninstallable. Hence grey out/disable the "Install" menu entry and vice versa.

The next version will have this done a bit better.

It is possible, but degrades performance. Currently all the information is gathered dynamically, when needed, not everything in advance, when font listing is displayed. That speeds things up. Imagine now, you asked in another post you want to load 20000 fonts. You select them all then display context menu. Should I gather information for every font, then analyse all possible installation states etc? If several fonts are selected, they may have different states.

Already installed font is also unloadable. You can unload it, it is not available in current session any more, but when you reboot then it will be available again.

I see that potentially it may be cool to have this funtion. But in reality, if you know what you are doing, it is just low impacy eye-candy...
