Howdy Joao,

Actually, we have very similar functionality already with the CCX Libraries function.  When you open a document with type, we automatically create an instance of each "style" of type used -- that is to say, the font face, font size, font color, etc.  You can then examine these styles or use them in your document.  Check it out -- it sounds like it's pretty much what you're looking for.

Thanks,
David

Obrigado Joao,

It should happen automatically when you open a document using any version of Photoshop from the last year and a half or so.  When you open a dialog with texts, colors, layer styles, or smart objects, you should get a dialog from Creative Cloud that says "New Library from Document" -- see my screenshot.

Hope that helps -- feel free to ping me if you need more info.

Thanks,
David

Just to be clear, what version of Photoshop are you running?  You can find this as the first line displayed under Help > System Info.

I have last version of Adobe Cloud CC. I've never noticed character styles were included in library import. My apologize. Thank you very much :D
