    Why can't I install fonts by dragging them into the fonts panel?


    I used to be able to install fonts (ttf or otf files) by dragging them into the Fonts Appearance panel. Since a couple of weeks this doesn't do anything anymore (as in, nothing happens after dragging the file, not even an error message) and I have to install my fonts manually one by one. Which is not really a solution because I often have to install dozens of font types at a time.

    Has anyone had this same problem? Or does anyone know of a different yet efficient way to install fonts? Thanks in advance!

    :)
