What sorting options would you like to see here? We need more input to understand the needs.

I would LOVE to have some option to search for fonts of certain styles like “calligraphy” or “serif” etc without having to manually drag them individually to a collection

Sort by Name / Foundry / Date Added would be useful. While you’re working on list functionality, I’d really like the ability to start typing a name to jump there

I would love all of that.

You can do that now, if entering “tags: serif” in the search field for example.

This topic is more about the ability to re-order the list of already found fonts, like order by date, order by name, order by number of styles, etc.

When all the fonts are sorted alphabetically, those that start with A get used the most. A randomizer would be great to sort randomly, thereby giving all fonts A to Z, as well as your creativity, equal opportunity.

Hi! The suggested option seems not (or no longer) working for me. Do we have any workaround for this? Thanks.

Try using the SuperSearch and then Serif it will add the tag to the search bar and show then fonts.

You need an Awesome subscription to be able to search tags. Searching for tags in the free version does not work.

My supersearch doesnt have that!! It just has stupid graphs which mean nothing for style…

Tags working between 2 computers on the same account would be awesome.

I would really like to see the ability to merge into a font family group, for example at the moment I have Apple Garamond & Apple Garamond Light showing separately, I would like to option to be able to put them under the same Family.

I’d suggest sort by any possible tag. Whatever you have. If you have weights, foundry names, whatever. Alphabetized. Simple dropdown menu for what tag to sort by, and up/down arrow toggle. It’d help to show the sorting value somewhere in the font preview box.

The ability to sort by script, I work with multi-lingual fonts, I’d love to be able to sort the arabic, cyrillic and latin automatically without having to create a tag or collection

Hello all:)
Glad to say that as of v2.20.1 FontBase now includes the ability to adjust font sorting preferences :partying_face:
Clicking the button on the right of the search bar will show the available sorting options.
Thank you all for your input and helping us making FontBase better with every update :pray:

PS Closing as being resolved.
