    Issue #1211: Load fonts in background after startup. · 89c829a2
    Jehan authored
    Fonts should not be blocking startup as this provides a very bad
    experience when people have a lot of fonts. This was experienced even
    more on Windows where loading time are often excessively long.
    We were already running font loading in a thread, yet were still
    blocking startup (thread was only so that the loading status GUI could
    get updated as a feedback). Now we will only start loading and proceed
    directly to next steps.
    While fonts are not loaded, the text tool will not be usable, yet all
    other activities can be performed.
