Allow manual substitution of missing fonts at startup
A common problem I have is when a font is missing, and currently, on startup there is only the option to find it on Adobe or accept the default font. It would be so helpful if you could select a font in the list and manually choose one from your system fonts to use instead. Otherwise you are stuck with the default font through a potentially large project.
Another common example which happened this morning is that I have Futura Bold installed, but the project I've been sent says Futura Bold is missing (as the spelling is different) - if I could manually select that font and replace it with Futura from my system fonts that would be so helpful. But now I have to go through 20+ comps and change it.
+1 And it's been a long-time coming! And let's stop relying on scripts, this should be built-in.
When it comes to font and asset management, both Premiere and AfterEffects should take a leaf out of InDesign's book - which was the whole point of Create Suite (and now Creative Cloud). Consitency of experience - Right?
