scroll through fonts with arrows (v17.0)
In version 17.0 it seems like the ability to preview fonts with the arrows keys is, once again, broken. It's crazy how much this slows down a workflow. Can we get this fixed please?
This is fixed in our 17.0.1 update, available now.

Please fix this font scrolling issue in Version 2020!
The font panel pop up is useless and slows down the workflow completely.
We want to see THE TEXT changes in real time in the Project preview.

Selecting fonts in character panel doesn't update in the view panel. This used to work in CC2019. Even using scroll doesn't work every time.

This is Jessica from the AE team responding about the new breakage in the November 2019 release. We are aware of the issue and are working towards a fix.
Thanks for taking the time to report this to us.
All the best,

I'm using CC 2020 and After Effects won't let me scroll through my fonts again...

Hi, this functionality seems to be broken again in CC 2020. I can't preview my fonts when scrolling in the font list with up/down arrow. Same for you ?

Works for me too.
This works for me in Ae 15.1 x 166 (public GM Build).

Fix font scrolling! Where you used to be able to "audition" fonts in your comp by selecting the font name in the Character panel and using the up/down arrows. It is RIDICULOUS that you broke this incredibly essential feature.
