I want to see "resent" fonts when choosing, be able to type letter to get down the list quickly, group similar fonts, etc. Maybe have a magnifying glass attached to cursor to see fonts better.... Why have this not been done? Or am I so ignorant that I haven't figured it out?
You need a font manager like FontXplorer or Suitcase for this. Asdobe apps have no built-in font management. They solely rely on operating system functions
