Same problem also in changing font in "Text properties", as a publishing tool not able to change font in program is quite important issue.

I tried another faster computer, it will not hangs but very very slow to change the font type, here are the capture which I compared with the 1.5.2 version.

Note that changing Chinese font type seems slower, I installed the Google Noto Chinese fonts and other asian fonts like Japanese and Thai where I need to create the document.After several click on changing the font it hangs and I have to kill it.

I found that if only changing the font without using the dropdown, change font will not have performance problem (lagging in UI/no respond issue). It seems the dropdown in 1.5.3.svn can preview the fonts and it causes a performance issues in Windows (Win10 is using here). I tried removed all Chinese font, since normally these fonts are larger in size, then the fonts' dropdown works again, but the font dropdown is obviously slower than 1.5.2.
