Scrolling through fonts has become impossible

It seems like a very fundamental task in photoshop has become fairly impossible : auditioning different fonts for your project via scrolling through them in the character panel.  

 

I usually select my type layer and then use the arrow keys to scroll through the font list and view different typefaces.  However, whenever I make an edit, and come back to the fontlist, it jumps all the way back to the top of the list, no matter if I try to start it where I left off or not.  It's as if it is impossible to scroll through fonts from anywhere except the top of the list.  This seems downright insane for photoshop?!

 

I have found a couple other users on the forum mentioning this to no avail.  How are you all testing many different fonts in your project if this basic function does not work anymore?!

Hi! I understand your frustration. Have you looked through this help doc on troubleshooting fonts? https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/troubleshoot-fonts-photoshop.html

 

Also, a shortcut I've used to get back to where I left off is to hit the corresponding letter. Like if I left off at Garamond, I will hit H and it jumps to that letter somewhere in the list. It's not a fix, but a handy way to get around.

Which version of Photoshop is in question? Which OS?

Not a solution but, other than the suggestion of mglush, maybe you can use a font manager:

Great advice to try. I also favor a font manager. They are lifesavers in all of these programs.

I have the same issues now. They need to release a patch/update. This disaster happened after the last update.

Photoshop 23.4.1 and Big Sur 11.6.5.

Ditto here.   That feature is crucial when you're having to match up a font on something you're working on.

I am having the same issue. I cannot scroll through the fonts any longer. Its not related to the glyphs issue but a whole new ball game of instability.

I literally searched for this issue just to make sure I wasn't going crazy! Yes! Please fix immediately. This simple function is critical to finding the perfect font.

This is aweful.  Not only can I no longer index through my fonts with the use of the arrow keys, the font menu covers most of my workspace and I can't see my workspace.  Macbook Photoshop 23.4.2
