Faster Font Lists
So, how do you like those font lists in the newer versions of MS Office programs?
I love them! There’s nothing like seeing the font name displayed in the font itself.
But, do you ever find that your system is running a bit slow and then experience a delay when you try to pull down the list?
Does it happen frequently?
Do you ever wish you didn’t have to wait for the program to display all that different formatting? You know, maybe have the font list as plain text so it pops open faster.
Well, if so, you’re in luck, because that’s a wish easily granted.
You need to open the Customize window. (Tools menu, Customize choice or right click on any toolbar and choose Customize from the bottom of the menu).
At this point, we need the Options tab.
Uncheck the “List font names in their font” option.
Voila! A plain text font list that is displayed quick, quick, quick!
