Recent Fonts at top of the list

(This idea is something we’ve heard from customers over time from several of our sources of feedback. We’re posting it here to gauge how well this fits our users’ needs. So please let us know what you think.)


When you use the same couple fonts all the time, it can get tedious to hunt through the list. A neat trick currently is to just hit the first couple letters of the font to jump to the general area. Or to just make a couple different quick styles with the desired font. BUT that can still be tedious and laborious upfront respectively.

It would be great if Snagit would remember the last 5 selected fonts at the top of the font list. Similar to how Office apps behave.

This make a lot of sense. In fact it’s become expected by a lot of applications. Having 3 to 5 fonts that you use regularly available without having to search for them would be great. A current workaround is of course to make a Quick Style or Theme with your regularly use fonts. But we hope to bring this to you before too long.

We've got this in active development, so I'm marking it as Planned! I'll be sending out initial beta invites today or tomorrow to the folks to participated on this thread. I just need to gather the email addresses together.

Again, thank you for voting!
