Font selection panel is really zoomed in

Hi

 

My font selection panel has always shown really zoomed in and makes it so I can't access Adobe fonts directly. See below:

I also have a lot of trouble with the index system - I can't seem to search for a font with any more than the first letter of it's name.

 

For example, if I am searching for a font called 'Creepster' - I type the character 'C' in the search box, and all the fonts begining with 'C' show.

 

When typing the next character 'r', all fine. But, everytime I type the 3rd letter (in this case 'e') this happens:

As you can see, only the first font that applies is shown, the correct font is actually hidden below it out of view and I can only access using the keyboard arrows.

 

Any suggestions of how to fix would be great - this issue has been present ever since I installed illustrator CC on my machine.

 

Thanks

 

Harry

 

 

Hi Harry,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing version of OS & Illustrator? Also, are you using Illustrator on a second monitor?

Mohammad is absolutely correct about resetting preferences. Please find more information about resetting preferences on help article https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html#setting_illustrator_preferences

 

**Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.

Let us know how it goes. Looking forward to your response.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Hi Harry,

Which system are you using ?

if everything was working perfectly and suddenly starts behaving in an abnormal way,

I highly recommend resetting the preferences :

 

Hold Cmd-Opt-Ctrl-Shift when restarting illustrator if you are on Mac 

Hold Alt-Crtl-Shift on if you are on windows

Hi there

 

No it wasn't working perfectly before - I don't recall it ever working the way it should. I'll try this now.

 

Thanks
