When using the portable version of mIRC, in case of client transfer to new computer, the user is left with the hope that the new system will have the same set of fonts as the previous system on the other computer.

I suggest adding an option to mIRC so that can specify the path to a folder with your own local set of preferred fonts that will always be there.

For example, the user can configure: "$mircdir\fonts\". But if the folder is missing or empty, then by default use the Windows system folder with a standard set of fonts.

Can also extend the "/font" command to specify the folder path: /font [-asbegilunkdmz|window] <fontsize> <fontname> [path]

Khaled, thanks for implementing this function, although I described doing it in a slightly different way. Perhaps you misunderstood because of my poor online translation.

It was assumed that the user could choose how many and which fonts mIRC will use, taking into account an immutable the basic set (Arial, Courier New, Fixedsys, Tahoma, ... etc).

Also meant to mIRC had an option in the form of a checkbox, when enabled, an edit field next to it became active, in which you can enter the path to the folder with fonts.
Perhaps the user wants to specify such a path to the folder "$mircdir\my_scripts\fonts\" and he will be able to configure it.
If the checkbox is not checked, the default Windows system fonts are used.

Example of an options layout created in Photoshop, of what this might look like:

In addition, if the user forgot to look in the mIRC option, then is it possible to make an empty "fonts" folder automatically created when starting mIRC? So that this feature does not remain hidden from users who do not follow updates. The existence of this folder will hint that can add your own fonts to it. But to activate this function, will still need to check the box in the mIRC options.

I understood your request perfectly well :-) There no plans to extend this feature in any other way. Hopefully, you'll find the added fonts folder support useful in your portable installations.

Well ... at least I'm very glad that neural networks have become much better at translating text :-)

Very it is a pity that we will never see additional extend and improvement of this functionality :'-(

I just wanted to take care of users who recently had a problem with fonts and therefore suggested this idea.

In any case, I thank you for this useful improvement in mIRC, which will also be useful for me [Linked Image from i.ibb.co]
