    Fonts on 4K Dell g3223q

    Hello, I just bought a 32inch 4K monitor for my 14inch Macbook Pro as I was trying to go for the best option that has at least 120Hz refresh rate and will give me sharp fonts.

    Why is macOS 'hiding' fonts?

    Since High Sierra, or possibly earlier, macOS has been bundling fonts in /System/Library/Fonts that are 'installed, but hidden'.
