Re: How to limit search to outline fonts

Hm. "Outline font" is typically another term for "vector font". I checked the Fontconfig source code, and the "scalable" and "outline" attributes are always set to the same value (see src/fcfreetype.c:FcFreeTypeQueryFace).

What am I missing, or is it really that hard to do this?

Since you're contrasting them to bitmap fonts, it sounds like what
you're looking for is "vector" fonts rather than "outline" fonts.  In
that case, I think the Fontconfig attribute you're looking for is
"scalable" rather than "outline".
