A Better Font Selector

I often have to search beyond the basic fonts for my projects, and more often than not, I find myself typing out my text in a composition and then bouncing through hundreds of fonts looking for one that works. During this process, I know basic information about the font I'm searching for (ie- it needs to be serif and condensed), but there's no way to filter through my installed fonts with this metadata to view only the fonts I need. The Adobe font library available in a browser gives me this ability, but it involves a second step and doesn't include the fonts I already have installed on my computer. If I could get a similar interface within after effects (and it could be something available in Premiere, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign as well), it would dramatically speed up my workflow and result in higher-quality video, since I could more easily screen potential fonts.
