Font Name vs Full Font Name

Post by mshubes »

Why does Maintype display the font name as family + style rather than the full font name (not postscript name)? This would be very helpful when viewing the list. As it stands, I have to turn on the full font name column in order to quickly differentiate the style variations. (See screenshot.)

You can use this as preview text:

{FULL_FONT_NAME}

This common font variable is missing in the help and manual, but will be added with the next upcoming update. Another new variables is {SAMPLE_TEXT}.
