Individual character map

Post by MuzzIQ »

Imagine you are looking for a specific font. You want a special and unique cut on a special letter. You can then start scrolling through your entire holding of different fonts. But you are not interested in seeing all the different characters or fonts, but only one particular character. And don't have enough time. What are you doing? For my part, I have solved the problem in Excel. In cell A1, I enter a letter and when I hover over a letter in the sheet, the comment field shows the name of the font.
But I wish this feature was available in High-Logic MainType!

The request sounds nice, but for now there is a work-around:

You can enter the specific characters at the top of the font list, so it is used as preview text. Then increase the preview size, and you can scroll vertically.
