I often vary my fonts when creating documents, and find it difficult to find the ones I often use in the drop-down menus due to the large amounts of foreign scripts, etc, that are automatically in there. I do not want to completely deactivate the other fonts (as you can do with font manager), because I want system fonts active and I like having foreign fonts available when browsing the internet, etc.

So, is there any way to block certain fonts from showing up in certain programs?
