#16101: Allow using non-system fonts from files with BFont
---------------------------------+----------------------------
  Reporter:  calvinb             |      Owner:  nobody
      Type:  enhancement         |     Status:  new
  Priority:  normal              |  Milestone:  Unscheduled
 Component:  Kits/Interface Kit  |    Version:  R1/Development
Resolution:                      |   Keywords:  bfont
Blocked By:                      |   Blocking:  13361
  Platform:  All                 |
---------------------------------+----------------------------
Description changed by calvinb:

Old description:

BFont can only work with fonts installed into the system (packaged/non-
packaged). It would be nice to be able to load external fonts from the
filesystem.

Use case: private fonts for applications/games not relevant to the rest
of the system, applications like font previewers/installers.
