    Latest versions of ID AI and PS (2019) are now installed and although they made changes to the font drop-down — being able to see a larger preview of the font and showing your actual selected text — The list still does not focus on the selected font when you have recent fonts showing, but instead goes to the top of the list. Just dumb behavior. If Corel has done it for 20 years, you think Adobe could do the same. It is a very useful feature. Adobe must think so, because they implemented it, just in a very non-productive manner.

    Just installed the latest updates to ID, AI and PS. Yes, you can now set the recent fonts to 0 (zero). However, if you do set it to 1-15 it still performs the SAME WAY! It will pop to the top of the font list. You have solved only ONE PART of the problem—giving AI users the ability to turn off recent fonts. (FYI - works the same in all three applications)

    Unless you move to the selected font in the list WITH the recent fonts at the top, recent fonts is essentially USELESS! Nobody is going to use it.

    Please get it right! Make the list go to the currently selected font WITH the recent fonts showing. Only then will it function correctly. CorelDraw has done this for 20 years. If you can't figure it out, buy Corel Corp., and implement their code into yours!!

    I completely agree with this FIX! I have used CorelDraw for many, many years and this is the default behavior for the drop-down font list. Make it work this way in AI and ID!!

    The latest build of AI does, in fact, have the ability to set the recent fonts to 0 (zero). This allows the currently selected font to be highlighted when selecting the font dropdown list. However, that is only PART of the solution.

    You need to be able to have that action—jumping to the currently selected font—even when the recent fonts are showing. In other words, have the same action happen when the recent fonts are showing or not. In my mind, the fix in place is only a temporary fix until they incorporate the above-described action.

    The recent fonts list is great, but every time you select the drop down, it defaults to the top of the font list. I realize this is being addressed with being able to set recent fonts to 0 (zer0) again, but why not just make the list jump to the currently selected font in all cases, with and without the recent fonts list showing?

    This is the default behavior for CorelDraw and has been for many years. The same issue exists in InDesign. But currently, you can set the recent fonts to 0 in ID.
