Recent Fonts List Modification to maintain the last selected position
Currently, if you have Number of Recent Fonts to Display set to anything but zero (0), recent fonts appear at the font drop down list, but the drop down starts at the top of the fonts list no matter what your current font is.
If I am just wanting the next or previous font in the list from the font I am currently using, I now have to scroll all the way down to that font. When the Number of Recent Fonts to Display is set to zero (0), when the drop down is selected, it is positioned at the font you are currently using instead of the top of the list. This is preferable.
Can you combine these actions. When there is a recent fonts list, the drop down should be at the current font being used in the text that is selected.
This is something CorelDraw does and has done for years. Here's to hoping this would be an easy programming issue. Otherwise, I will not use that feature due to the amount of scrolling that needs to be done to get to the current font, or any other font I want to get that is not right at the top.

1. When designing in InDesign or Illustrator, etc., I often scroll down the text menu, pick a font, work with it a while then go back to the font menu to try the next font. Unfortunately the font menu always goes back to the top of the list. I would like the font drop down menu to pop back to the current font so I can continue where I left off in the list.
2. Failing that idea, at least add a scroll bar and maybe highlight the current font in the list so I can get back to where I left off more quickly.
Well, I have a simple solution. If you try to scroll down it will be back to the top after 10-15 font.
Now, reverse your mindset. Try it to SCROLL UP from down, it works for my indesign.
I just need to get used to....

I have this problem on my Macbook Pro as well. I've tried disabling Missing Glyph Protection but to no avail, still happens every time.

Can you please fix the font scrolling issue? When scrolling through fonts it jumps back to the top of the font list. It never used to do this in previous versions.
oh!.. you unknowingly helped me already with the issue I've been having since CC. I don't really care about the Recent-Fonts, so setting it to 0 solved my problem :) I didn't know theres a setting for it and it then behaves like before.
I voted anyway because I can see how it annoys ppl who still want to use the recent fonts feature.
Enable selected text in document also selected in font list so you can continue perusing list from that point on and not having to scroll down from beginning of list every time.
Please return the font list to as it was before the updates!
Every time I select a font and exit the font list it returns me to the top the next time I open it. Why would this be considered useful, it's cost me hours and hours since it was changed. It's like Adobe is deliberately sabotaging designers.

Just installed the latest updates to ID, AI and PS. Yes, you can now set the recent fonts to 0 (zero) in Illustrator. However, if you do set it to 1-15 it still performs the SAME WAY! It will pop to the top of the font list. You have solved only ONE PART of the problem—giving AI users the ability to turn off recent fonts. (FYI - works the same in all three applications)
Unless you move to the selected font in the list WITH the recent fonts at the top, recent fonts is essentially USELESS! Nobody is going to use it.
Please get it right! Make the list go to the currently selected font WITH the recent fonts showing. Only then will it function correctly. CorelDraw has done this for 20 years. If you can't figure it out, buy Corel Corp., and implement their code into yours!!
If you are using the Character window and you have text selected in your document, if you want to change that font, the fly up menu of fonts does NOT go back to the one you have selected. It starts back at the top with A fonts unlike Illustrator where the font list goes back to the one you have selected in your document. That way you can continue scrolling down to select the next font needed when you are trying to decide which font you want to use. See example attached. I need it to go back to the font used, not go back to A fonts...

I'm very sad, that I can only vote once for this! Thanks!
