    There has been this one little thing that bugs the heck out of me in Photoshop, every version so far....

    Sometimes when working on everyday things I like to select text, put the cursor in the Character window "Font" field, then arrow up or down to change the font of the selected text in question. It works great. UNTIL it comes across the wacky fonts like Braille or a few others mixed into my font list, at which point it makes the "dong" noise and I have to find my place again.

    Any ideas how to remedy this without having to go through my entire font collection and remove the offenders?

    I ran a text sample of my name through this using all of my fonts and I couldn't replicate it on CS3. When I got to an unreadable foreign language font, it showed those open rectangles for the letters, but no "bong of frustration". I never edited my font list and braille isn't there. Maybe I just don't "see" it...:)

    I think I know the problem you are referring to. Unfortunately, I do not have a solution.

    In my situation, it's not particularly "wacky" fonts. For instance. If I am in the text palette and I type the name of the font "DIN" it skips DIN and DIN Schrift and goes straight to Dingbat. If I try to use the up arrow to navigate up my list to where DIN is, I get the "donk" sound.

    If you ever find a reason or a fix, please do report back. I would appreciate it.
