Hmmmm. I do have an Apple ID and an admin user account (though perhaps not THE
admin user account, if there is such a thing as only one). Also, a couple of
other folks' replies on this thread have suggested better ways I can deal with
the GIMP font-list issue in itself. GIMP is pretty much the only program where
scrolling past a zillion system fonts is a serious problem. Adobe Open Office
also has some of them, but only as families. Three PingFang fonts in a list is
not all that big a deal. Eighteen of them is.
