Font picker

Post by zaphodikus »

Is it possible to tell VS2019 to not list every single font on my computer in the font picker?

I'm missing a trick here, because scrolling in a tiny little picker list with no shortcut takes far too much time when titling, since every title just chooses the default font and you end up pasting properties you your titles just to get some speed up. Is copying clip properties the only way to save time titling?

/edit I also notice that the font picker drop-list "drop" or downarrow of the control is not actually clickable. That's frustrating and inconsistent, is it accidental?

It's an issue from the dark ages. I think it's mainly OS problem
Your best option is to save few titles as favorites and drag them to the timeline

Hi
I agree with Asik1
Create a title showing the Font and Size, add as much detail as you need, Animation etc. then drag to the Favourites to save the as a copy.
Drag to the timelines to reuse at any time, just changing the text.

Actually that makes a lot more sense. especially since I like to tweak my animations on my text titles almost to death. Sweet.
