I scanned that article and it explains how to set the number of recent fonts shown at the top. But here's what I was talking about...
Let's say you're working on something and you have your text highlighted and you're working down the font list trying different fonts. You try a few A fonts, then B fonts, and so on, down the list. Well, instead of Fireworks bringing you back to the current font IN THE LIST, everytime you go to try another font, it starts back at the top, and you have to scroll down and find where you were in the list ALL OVER AGAIN EVERY SINGLE TIME.
In Illustrator, when you have the Character box open, it does exactly what I'm describing. If you have some text selected, every time you change the font and go back to the font drop-down, it takes to you to where you are. If Myriad is the font you are currently using, it doesn't start you back at the top when you go to the drop-down to find another font. It takes you to Myriad in the list.
Nevermind, I just unchecked that box that says Number of Recent Fonts (to show) in Preferences/Type. Then I restarted Fireworks, and it works the way I want it to. In the font drop-down, it takes you to the font you're using - where it is in the main font list.
Yes. That was mentioned in the article.
