Font field preview inconsistency: creates unwanted undos!

Previewing selected text in different fonts, by highlighting the Font Field in the Options bar and using the arrow keys to scroll through the font list, works as expected: no undo steps are created in the History window for each previewed font.

However, scrolling through the Character window's font list with the arrow keys DOES create a new undo step for each previewed font. This is a serious problem since previewing fonts this way quickly fills the History window with identical History states (i.e. "Set Character Style"), eliminating legitimate undo steps a user might actually need to use. This inconsistency needs to be fixed!

Furthermore, font previewing should be allowed by arrow-keying through the font lists as well, not only through the font fields.

  • frustrated that so many harmful inconsistencies exist, not only between CS programs, but within individual CS programs as well!
