Font weight menu to toggle (feature request).

Previous topic - Next topic


When working with the Story Editor in Scribus, all the user gets is the drop down menu to toggle a font of choice. It would be helpful, as well as save time/aggravation, if there were also a font weight menu. That way, if I select a font for a document, the next logical step is to arrange all the font weights, whether it is a business card, brochure, or booklet. Most pro layout designers tend to work in various weights of one font for a document. When I type out Sarabun, the menu defaults to Sarabun Bold, and I have to make the extra steps if I want 'regular', or 'SemiBold'. When trying other layout programs, it was such a relief to have the font weights menu.

Also, i am not sure if it is a bug, but in the story editor, when I pick a font and then adjust the size or alignment, the font toggles back to default and I have to re-select the font. This happens 100% of the time.If I pick a font in story editor, it ought to stay that way unless I direct otherwise.
