We need custom font filters / tags
We have Favorites in Font Family drop-down list, but that's not enough. Allow us to create our own custom filters / tags and manage them.
@Skilltech, it has been merged with an older request about the same thing, which had more votes. When this happens, the post is converted to a comment and all attachments are also merged.
Thanks Egor. But why did my attachment (illustrator-font-tags.jpg) move out of my post?
A gorgeous mockup, mate!
Font TAGS INSIDE ILLUSTRATOR's FONTS MENU (not in CC). An extension to the fonts menu with an ability to create CUSTOM font tags and easily find "those" fonts you always waste too much time finding.
I can't stress enough how important is to LET DESIGNERS CREATE THEIR OWN TAGS. No predetermined Adobe tags!
Example: Tag a font with an e.g. "Slanted" custom tag, then click on "Slanted" tag in the Tags menu and only the "Slanted" fonts would be listed.
There would be options to:
• Create new font tags
• Assign existing (or new) tags to a selected font
• Filter fonts by tag(s)
• Select filtering type (correlation)
For multiple tags applied, there would be a "Correlation" switch button for filtering, with options "And" and "Or". Let's say we select tags "Tag A" and "Tag B", then:
• "Or" option would show both "Tag A" tagged fonts and "Tag B" tagged fonts
• "And" option would only show fonts that have both "Tag A" AND "Tag B" tags

Since you have added the Star system to set favorite fonts, it would be an amazing addition if we could create custom lists and add as many fonts as we need to filter them according to our designs and our personal style. That way we will save tones of time by filtering very easy what we need.
The new "Find more," under the character tab, is awesome, and it would be really cool if there were a way to apply various colored highlights to fonts I'm interested in per project, so I can easily access my alternate 'maybe fonts' without having to add them to favorites, or remember them as I scroll by, which has become pretty impossible, given all there is to choose from under this new feature. Love the new "find more"...thanks so much.
