Summary0009346: Inconsistent sorting of fonts in dialogs
DescriptionThe sorting of fonts in Scribus is inconsistent between dialogs, which can become quite inconvenient when a large number of fonts is installed on a computer:

Purely Alphabetical
- Preferences/DocSetup > (item) Tools: alphabetical
- Font substitution dialog (brought up when loading a doc): alphabetical

Alphabetical with Uppercase fist
(e.g. AMS Medium is listed before Adobe Sans,
CMU Serif before Caslon Roman,
Zapfino Italic before "the dead saloon regular")
- Preferences/DocSetup > Fonts > Available Fonts/Font Substitution
- Extras > Font Preview
- PP > Text
- Style Editor (F3)
