Feature Request: Preview for *.TTF Files

It would be brilliant if X1 can preview *.TTF files (True Type Font files).

I happen to have a huge folder of *.TTF files, and need to see them one by one right now, since X1 doesn't preview these files at the moment!

Given that the people who write the viewer for X1, and just about anything else that moves, already support ttf files, this might not be that difficult.

Actually, have you tried adding the directory?

If you do so, then double click the ttf file you will see the fonts.

Does this achieve what you want?

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

My guess is that what he would like to do is bring the files up in the results pane, then scroll down one by one to see what comes up in the preview pane. That would be much more efficient than opening the files from the results pane one by one.

Then probably better to get a font viewer.

X1 is a search engine with a viewer built in. Fonts don't even have sane filenames that you can search for.
