Add Italic (Oblique) and Bold to Preview

Hello
Looking for the opportunity to preview the Italic Angle (degrees) setting from Font Properties > Identification.

Thanks in advance,

If I remember rightly the Windows dialogue used for the Font Test window doesn't support the italic cursor.

The work around in this thread will also solve this problem.

Exactly. We have posted this in the Enhancement Requests forum as a result.

Workaround is working fine. Would need to see more of the enhancement requests implemented before we can justify upgrading to 9.0

This is a Windows control. I don't think it is something that Erwin can fix, unless he writes his own font test dialogue from scratch.
