Hi Tony --

The changes are live. :-) Here is how you can install a font:

TTCFont class >> #installFromFileNames:
TTCFont class >> #uninstallFontNames:

There is commentary in both methods. Let me know if this helps. Maybe also take a look at the class side of TTFontFileHandle.

Will do!

This isn't urgent - I have a solution that's working well enough for now.

I need to script it, so the FontImporterTool is out. And I need to load
it into the image.

For now, I'm happy to wait for the finished product :-)
