Description jlbraga 2015-03-22 21:07:53 UTC
Hi. Wouldn't it be beter if, when we click the font selection menu, the font we are using appears not only in the top of the most recently used, but also highlighted where it is placed on the list, with that place centered in the list menu, so we don't have to scroll the menu to find it again?

It does seem a bit strange for it to jump to the alphabetical beginning of the font list.

I'm not saying it jumps, I'm saying it also appears in the top of the 5 most recently used. But when we want to choose, say, the next on the list just to try it, we have to scroll down. But if the font we are using not only appears in the latest top 5, but also highlighted in the proper place in the font list, we just have to click the next one.

Well I agree with you and that's why I set this report to NEW. I was just referring to the current behavior of the view jumping to the beginning of the font list.
