Im struggling with the way the font selection tab works in the character menu.
When i scroll down the list and select minion halfway down the list, the next time i click on the font tab, the list starts back at the top of the list making me scroll down the list every time i want to look for a font.
Can anyone offer some suggestions here?
You can't do it exactly the way you want, but if you have InDesign CC or CC 2014, you can set fonts in the Character panel or Control panel Type menu to be Favorites. Click the "star" beside a font to set it as a favorite. Then at the top of the menu, click the "star" filter to show favorites in your list instead of a list of all the fonts.
This may help a little... Place cursor in font family field and start typing out the name of the font you want to select. This at least avoids the scrolling through a long list.
