[Closed] Dialog box for substituted fonts every time after open new file

As reported by Sprinterdriver in the 1.2 release announcement:

If a file that contains text elements are opened in Inkscape 1.2 (portableapps) - then it always pop up a message that list the fonts used.

Example
Font 'Bahnschrift' substituted with 'Bahnschrift'
Font 'Franklin Gothic Demi' substituted with 'Franklin Gothic Demi'
Font 'Gill Sans Nova' substituted with 'Gill Sans Nova'

OS: Windows 10 Pro, 21H1, 19043.1645

I've tested the original version of Inkscape (downloaded from inkscape.org) and cannot reproduce at that. Therefore this looks like an issue only affected by the portableapps version of Inkscape 1.2.

**To reproduce**
* Use previous version of Inkscape to create a document that contain the fonts mentioned above (other fonts may or may not be affected).
* Run Inkscape 1.2 - portableapp version.
* Use dialog box file --> Open, find/select the file created in step 1

Settings Change

Is this possibly due to a settings change from 1.1.2 to 1.2, possibly where the installer might update a new setting to not show a thing but the default is to show it?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Possibly base app and/or font config issue

This appears as though it may be an issue with the base app, or possibly a font config issue. I'm trying to replicate it, however haven't yet been able to.

There's a couple issues that are similar that have been reported to the publisher.

Can't Reproduce

I created a new drawing in Inkscape Portrable 1.1.2 Release 2 and created a new text element with Bahnschrift and saved it. I then opened that svg in Inkscape Portable 1.2 and it opened without issue. Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 19044.1766 English US.
