Hiding system fonts

Hi,

 

I am looking for a startup script which would be able to hide system fonts in the dropdown font menu. I know that I could select the other fonts and add them as favorites, but since I have more than 500 Macs to manage, with different sets of fonts, it is obviously not possible. 

 

Thanks!

Thanks Mike,

 

I have this document. Since our machines are running on Mac OS 10.15, the System Integrity Protection forbids to remove the fonts, unless if the system is installed on another partition and it is not an option for us.

 

Thanks anyway!

I'm not a scripter but it seem like it would be possible to script the creating of a favorites list that excludes the system fonts.
