Shared media

I just downloaded the latest version and it appears it no longer supports shared media. Specifically importing fonts. I have no problems with any other addons except for this latest version. Anyone else have a similar problem?

It never should of worked in the first place... just luck if it was. Carbonite is self-sufficient (for now) and has no external libraries like libsharedmedia.

I could be completely wrong about this tho and they manually supported it in the addon somehow, I just haven't come across it yet.

I must be one of the lucky ones.

I know Carbonite has been like this for at least the last two years, because that's how long ago I decided to change the fonts that displayed the various Carbonite information in its' interfaces. I wanted it to match the rest of the displays in my UI. Luckily, the font I wanted to use was listed in the fonts menu, so.......

By the way, I'm currently using Carbonite 5.0591, but the BETA displayed the fonts the same way while I was using it.

I've always used Wow font folder method to change font's to the ones I want to use. Since it's an everywhere change, the new fonts show up in Carbonite as well.

Excellent fix....thank you. I got lucky with it before and never put much thought into a solution.
