Make font selections easier

Hey, guys. Having recent fonts at the top of the list is very helpful.

But when I'm trying to match a font, or experimenting, I need to go through the whole list,
one by one, until I find what I'm looking for.

That's a lot easier if, when I go into the list, the current font is pre-selected.(Which of course, creates a dilemma: Doing that takes the user away from the recently-used at the top!)

I'm not sure how to resolve the dilemma, but right at the moment it is getting pretty painful, trying to match a font. The further down I am, the further I have to scroll next time!

You can wait for an implementation of favorite fonts OR you can download the free Nexus font that runs as a stand alone on Windows machines. You can have collections, load folders, and have a multiple folders with a few favorites i.e. scripts, Christmas fonts etc which you never have to install
As long as the program is running, the fonts are available to you in any program
If you have folders with 19,999 fonts in them it will load them but you will wait and things will bog down ... but you would expect that anyway
Since free is a good price, try it out but do read the docs first so you get the idea of folders collections etc and how to set them out without a lot of frustration
