Is there a way to select certain fonts as favorites?

At the moment, every time I select a font and write a word in it and change the tool afterwards, it snaps back to Arial, and I have to look for the font again I have just written in.

How can I stop this behavior and have the artistic text tool remember the last used font - and how can I select favorite fonts where I have a shortlist of 4 - 6 fonts I regularly use, so I don't have to browse through all those comic sans funny symbols chalk scriptures and impact stuff to find the fonts I want to use.

thanks!

In the font drop down list there is a heart shape at the right side of each font entry. Click this to make the font a favourite.
At the top of  the font drop down list there is a button to only display favourite fonts.

You also can set defaults for the tools. I think this was explained in other threads already. It works for the text frame tool, too :)

I'm going to work on the default settings of tools. That's my next task to learn with this software.

You're welcome. The default settings of tools is pretty usefull. It just takes a little to find the most practical (= universal) settings for oneself :)

Is there any way to lock down fonts selection to 'Favorite'. At the moment it goes back to 'Recent'. I think I know better which fronts I want to see and if I'd want to see 'Recent' I would simply change to it.

Hello @Keram and welcome to the forums.

This is an interesting suggestion but I am not aware that there is a way to make the dropdown to always first show 'favorite' fonts. In contrary to what you write for me it always switches back to 'All', though.

Cheers,
