...the ini file is already present in the app folder (I use the app now for 3 years). The tools from SoftwareOK at times are really slick and thin, but occasionally... this one seems really buggy (see my comment about font-compatibility)

@zorro: Tried moving the ini file to the app folder? At least that's what has to be done with some other SoftwareOK apps.

The last version writes to "Appdata\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\FontViewOk.ini"

Unfortunately FontViewOK is totally unreliable - I work a lot with different (commercial & free) fonts and the program has severe problems with most commercial open-type-fonts. Actually I have 586 fonts installed - NexusFont shows all and only struggles on some broken ones (showing the phrase in Arial) whereas FontViewOK shows only 142 - "Helvetica Neue" for example doesn't show up at all although I have the whole family (51) installed. Not really useful.

Above stubborn "preset window size" bug (feature?) still crawling as of v3.75

lautrepay: I am very familiar with INI files. What I am saying is that this app does not store the window position you set in the INI file. No matter what you change the windows size to, it will always open in a preset size next time.

@shodan816: Settings are saved to FontViewOK.ini in the app folder. The ini file is automatically created after the first launch. Perhaps the folder where you've installed the app is read-only...

Surely I am missing somehting. I know it's early in the morning, but I cannot find a way to save settings, such as window size, position and color preferences in this app. Anyone?
