2018-09-02 16:52:02 Hachmann description The font family selection dropdown in the text tool's tool controls bar stays sensitive for mouse movements even when the mouse is outside of the dropdown area. It moves as soon as the mouse approaches one of the borders, e.g. to select a font farther down, and it even autoscrolls horizontally, which is especially nasty, as one cannot see what the current font is anymore as soon as one moves the mouse into the right area of the dropdown. This means that it becomes very hard to select a font from the tool controls bar, as the contents is always moving, sometimes out of sight. The dropdown also doesn't close when one clicks on the dropdown icon again (just keeps scrolling). Only Escape or choosing a font leaves it.
