|Summary||0011789: Change fonts with arrow keys|
|Description||It would be useful if we could change font simply by using arrows keys. It would help find the right font when not knowing exactly which one to use. Following those steps :|
1. Select text
2. Go to Text tab of PP
3. Select the font list or use a shortcut for it
4. use up and down arrow to change the font
Actually, it selects the text which makes the changes impossible this way
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||Seems to work as expected on Windows...|
||Works as expected on Fedora 20 as well.|
on OS X 10.8.5 using 1.5svn r19168 this does not work. It works if one 2-finger scrolls (aka 'smooth scroll') though while the font dropdown is activated. The outcome is also of a imprecise scrolling through several fonts at once without knowing which font was which.
||Seems to work as expected on openSUSE 13.1 with 1.5.0.svn (19220).|
||Indeed, i've just tested on a fresh build of 1.5 on Debian wheezy and it applies well. Just one thing : need to validate a first font change before the changes from arrows are working.|
Pygmee, what do you mean by:
Just one thing : need to validate a first font change before the changes from arrows are working?
I nominated this as a 'Most Annoying Bug' but I did so erroneously. I misunderstood the bug to think that it was referring to another behavior. The behavior I thiought this bug was indicating was to cycle through the different fonts with the arrow keys and see the text selection on the canvas change based on that font selection. Is there a bug open for this already ?
On Linux Mint 17, with scribus 1.4.3 (I did not test the developer branch), it does not work either which is: even after choosing a font, using arrow keys won't loop through the available fonts (whereas in Story Editor, or using properties).
It seems as though the text is always the active widget, which makes sense somehow, but prevents looping through list widgets with keyboard. Would be nice to either allow these list widgets to get the focus, or else providing a shortcut to loop back and forth through font list and see direct render.
Also it looks like people are saying here, we should see the font rendered in the Story Editor? Because I don't even. My text also shows in some basic font in my story editor, until I exit it, which updates the canvas.
no jehan, by design the story editor does not show fonts.
it's in its goal: show the text unformatted.
When Pygmee said this bug was somewhat fixed except that it what remained was that it needed 'to validate a first font change before the changes from arrows are working', I was confused (see 0011789:0032167).
So I'm thinking of cloning this bug to a new issue because I initially thought this issue was about cycling 'through the different fonts with the arrow keys and see the text selection on the canvas change based on that font selection. Is there a bug open for this already ?' How can we do this in scribus right now?
