I cannot understand the design, all the other icons look pretty fine but this one looks really meaningless and ugly.
Hi, Sraw

Just change it.

How is having other language support fonts on your system an actual problem?
Hi, Portreve

It's a pain to constantly scroll through them because they slow down the workflow and give no real benefit to those who need only roman fonts.

Hi, MadmanRB

The release notes cover the topic very well. It's always a good idea to read them. I read them and had zero issues installing for an RTX 2070 and an RTX 2080.
