If this feature is available, I'm not seeing it. It would be hugely helpful if the Browse Fonts feature allowed for a font style to be chosen in the filter, for example italic. I'm trying to find a font with a nice italic, but can't filter to see it in the preview, I have to click into every font to see what it looks like.

Hi Stacy,

 

Sorry for the delay in response. It looks like you need a fonts with a nice italics. However, in order to search for the font variation, we need to first search for the font and then you can view the family of the fonts which has all the variations in it.

 

For example, If am looking for a Samantha Italic font, then i will search for Samantha font and then go to view family. There it will show all the font variations as shown in the screenshot below.

Please let me know if this is not what you are looking for.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

That's exactly my point. If I knew what font I wanted, I wouldn't be searching. It would be nice if I could browse all fonts, by their italic. To have to pick a font, click to view the whole family just to see the italic variation is extremly time consuming. If I can browse fonts by type - sans serif, mono, script, etc. - why can't I also browse by italic, bold, light? It seems to be a completely rudimentary function, one available in pretty basic font management software.

Hi Stacy, I just want to add my support for your point. I've just gone into the Fonts search page expecting to be able to pull up lots of examples of italics. But, although all sorts of searches are possible, many I am unlikely to ever need, such as a narrow width, light weight, slab serif, art deco face (Niagara), there is no facility to search for italics. It's a big omission, I think.
Can I ask Adobe to add this feature asap. Thanks.

Thanks Mark,

 

I wouldn't hold your breath on this. I feel like Adobe provides these forums to give the appearance of monitoring, but they sure don't seem to take their user's concerns very seriously. As you see above, after their initial, unhelpful reply, they vanished.
