changing subset fonts in the Control Bar
On occasion, when changing the subset font (or font variant) via the upper Control Bar, the change doesn't register on the document. The character palette also doesn't register the change (they should match).

Please try to work after enabling the font preview from Preferences, if it is disabled.
You can do it by going to Edit->Preferences->Type->Enable the option "Font Preview".
