Hey, community. I think I found some sort of a bug in Character dialog window. 
Basically i used to change any character parameter by scrolling on it's input field. It's super easy to change font, size, and other parameters. The point is that in Ps 2019 the only field which doesn't react on scroll is Font Style selection field. 

I think developers just forgot to set this option for Font style field. Otherwise i don't see any logical reason to disable this usefull option on this particular field. 

Thanks for support.

Just select a font with several styles, test with Arial.

Yeah, sure. Maybe Mac doesn't have such bug. The fact that it does work on Mac and Doesn't work on Windows is strange thing.

f no one reproduces the problem on Windows .... Maybe it exists only on your PC?

Howdy Eugene,

Hmm, curious.  You're right.  That control does not respond to the mouse-wheel on Windows.  I'm not sure if this is a bug or a limitation, however, as I see the same results in all instances where this should be possible.  It might be an OS limitation.  Either way, I did go ahead and put in a feature request for someone to look at this and see if it can be improved. 

Thanks for letting us know and sorry for the hassle,
David
