@Tav: if someone works on this, could they also please fix the issue with the selected item jumping to the top of the list?

I do not mean to not show fonts that are in the document at the top, that's useful.

But the font is then in the list twice, and if one is trying out various fonts, one loses the position in the list one was at, after hitting 'Apply'. This is a very time-consuming behaviour, because one needs to scroll down to the correct position in the list again, then select the next font, to see how it would look.

It would be much more useful if the selection stayed in its original position, so one can continue browsing fonts seamlessly (the preview is nice, but it's not the same as having it in the drawing).

I've read from many people that they find working with the font dialog cumbersome since the font list at the top has been added, due to this.
