Text tool: Can font kind be live previewed?

Post by cadudesun »

Hi.
Using PL defaults, I couldn't preview font kind (text tool), but only see changes after a font is actually selected.
Since every filter/adjustment can be live previewed (eye icon active) in PL, I'm wondering:
Can font kind or font size be live previewed as well?
I'm looking for something similar to what is shown in this screen-recording: https://tinyurl.com/y6x89xgv
Thank you,
Cadu

I agree, it could be nice to have Preview by mouse hover.
Currently live font preview is possible, but in slightly different ways:
Option 1: Click on Font menu and use up/down keyboard arrows.
Option 2: Hover mouse to Font combo box and scroll.
Also it is possible to use native OS font selection window: Layout -> Text -> Choose Font...
Font size box use same logic as any other input boxes:
Hover and mouse scroll
Or drag with middle mouse button.
Or click to box and use up/down arrows
