    I updated to Mac OS Big Sur and I now have 101 Noto Sans fonts (unremovable OS system fonts!) in my drop down list under the “Ns”! The foreign language ones are not at the bottom of the list.

      Sad but true. The Noto fonts make navigating the font menus in all the Adobe apps a bad joke.

      And Apple has made it all but impossible for most people to remove those fonts. The only fix I’ve read is to boot from another volume and delete them, but part me thinks that even then Apple will have some way for the OS to detect they’re missing and automatically reinstall them whether you want it or not. That would be so on brand for them.

      I think the only hope would be to make a feature request at UserVoice and get as many people as possible to vote for it. It’s so infuriating that I think once most people experience it on a daily basis, it might actually get addressed.
