Deciphering a Font’s Status in Corel

The Corel Font Manager can be a little confusing because heading each font listing is a color bar indicating the status of a particular font: green means the font is installed, yellow is uninstalled, gray is part of a family with mixed install status, and white is an online font not yet downloaded. These all make sense once understood, but at first glance can feel chaotic. 

Each computer’s system requires that certain fonts are present and installed – it’s good to not delete them! To discourage this, these fonts are locked and indicated as such by a padlock symbol on top of the color bar.
