(Re: Adobe Illustrator 24.1.3 Mac) It is a constant irritation, here in the year 2020, to be forced to deal with a a modal panel that looks like a relic of Mac OS 9. I am referring to the non-resizable Find Font window, which is so tiny that it cannot even display the full name of most fonts, forcing one to use the control-click preview to find out which style is being referenced. Note in this screenshot the two entries for "Myriad Pro Semibold Conde..." — and this isn't even a long font name. Imagine if it read "Berthold Bodoni Antiqua Semibold Italic". I know this isn't a huge bug, but it is a constant daily annoyance, and it seems like it would be an easy fix (and should have been fixed circa 2005). For example, the same window in InDesign (see second screen shot) has a much wider fixed width and uses a smaller font. It also uses a different method for selecting the replacement font that is arguably much more user-friendly. So why doesn't the Illustrator team just adopt that version in the interest of suite consistency?
