After installing a few word processing and graphics editing programs, my font list in LabVIEW is about 6 screens long and all I see without scrolling are some really useless fonts.
To select the ones I typically use (tahoma, courier, etc.). I need to scroll many pages, keeping a close watch on the alphabetically sorted names flying by when scrolling). Of course I could spend a day cleaning out my fonts, but I am never sure if something actually uses one of these.
Like most other applications, LabVIEW should maintain a short list on top, containing favorite fonts. This list could be auto-populated by the fonts used on the current front panel or just be a short history of recently selected fonts. There should also be a configuration option, allowing us to "pin" certain really-really favorite fonts to that area.
It could look as follows:
Of course what we really need is a modern text toolbar, but this idea would apply there equally. 😄
