I add that even on AROS x86 Wanderer doesn't have these "important" functions and there is no tool to swap icons or modify its functions.

Wanderer needs Built-in Icon Exchange.
(On a separate thread)  ;)

Magellan already has that feature.

I don't know how to contact Mazze, if you can do it I thank you ! it's just a matter of time.

I'll probably have no time before Saturday.

@deadwood

There would be another major problem on AROS 68k, the Font Prefs often crashes the system when you want to try and set some system Fonts.

Also it is not possible to change the Font color, very important when choosing a light background, white fonts do not have a good visibility on light backgrounds

Does this happen on ABIv0 as well?
How do you trigger this problem?

New ROM: https://axrt.org/development/aros-rom-20211216.zip

Two changes integrated:
Modified path copying in CreateNewProc() so that it was compatible with Workbench
From Gunnar von Boehn - Changed default mouse to something more Amiga like <-- you can observe new cursor in early boot menu for example

I rejected as few changes. A also submitted two fixes to ApollOS repository.
All in all there is only one more change related to improvement in early boot menu left.

No on AROS x86 ABI-v0 there are no system crashes, however it lacks the ability to change the color of the fonts

It seems to be stable Fonts Prefs in your distribution and your new ROMs, I should test them more time to be sure.
The problem could also be caused by the Request Preview Fonts, but I may be wrong.

On my system with your new ROMs the Crash with Fonts Prefs still happens.

@Deadwood:

You should commit new changes & fixes in the MASTER branch, so that it can be downloaded from the usual place: http://www.aros.org/nightly1.php

With your new ROM today Fonts Prefs seems to be stable also on my AROS One 68k
