Adobe Illustrator - Avoid Scrolling When Searching For A Specific Font (10/CS/CS2)

Scrolling through a long font list in search of a particular font is a definite waste of time. To eliminate this extra scrolling hassle, Illustrator makes it easy to locate the font you want. Here's how to do it.

To quickly change your font without scrolling:

  1. Select the text you want to change the font of.
  2. Click to the left of the font name in the Control palette or Character palette.
  3. Type the first letter or two of the font name you want.

Your font will jump to the first font that matches the letters you typed.
