Font preview in AE CC 2024 not working

Editing Text in AE is very inconvenient and buggy.


The font dropdown menu where you can see the sample text only shows the actual font for the sample for some fonts, but the majority has the preview in a standard font.


I have to actual choose the font to see it in my composition - add to that that there's currently no way to scroll through fonts or go through them with the arror keys:

I have to click on a font, which closes the dropdown menu, then i have to open the dropdown again, find where I left off and click the next font and so on.


And after I pick a font, the name doesn't even appear in the window, it's instead replaced with a "-"


It's also missing some filter options that are available in Illustrator, like weight, serif etc. I can only filter by Adobe fonts. Screenshot 2024-06-08 at 09.31.00.png

I guess this is a mix of bug and idea for improvement. The text editing workflow as it currently is an AE doesn't work well.
