For now reloading swf button doesn't help when I've installed new fonts in Windows. I should close FFDec and open again to see new installed fonts in font characters import list.
developer
Implemented. I haven't test it, but if GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getAvailableFontFamilyNames() returns always the actual installed fonts, then it should be reloaded. Please test it when you have time.

Doesn't work. New font appears in list only after closing and opening FFDec (pressing reload button under "save as exe" has no effect).
developer
Yes, it is cached somewhere in Java. Then i think that it is impossible without process restart:(

Please try again. Now i'm added internal proprietary API (Win32FontManager), but it can be removed in a future release of Java, so it is not guaranteed, that will work forever.

It works but partitially. New font is shown after reloading but when I want to import font characters it imports not from it but from some other font like Arial. After closing and opening FFDec again it imports correct font characters from new font.
developer
Ok, then i'll revert the last modification, because however i'm able to get the updated font list, but java still thinks, that the new font is not available, when you try to load it. And i think it is better not to show the font in the list, when it can't be used. Do you agree?
user
Yes, reverting is better ("not to show the font in the list, when it can't be used") than to leave it as now.
