It would be great if there was an option to have the text size as a slider and not a drop-down. This is the biggest disruption of my workflow in almost any project I'm working on.

Thanks.

Agreed. Being able to slide to find what size fits would be a huge quality of life boost. I'm tired of guessing font size numbers.

YES INDEED! The missing slider is not good at all. The way it is now, it reminds me of Adobe! Ugh!

Also I would like the text tool and the styles tool to always be visible and side by side with color adjustments and effects. In EACH and EVERY workspace. (Are workspaces necessary?

As a perhaps not ideal workaround, you can Option-scroll the text size field to change the size of text.

We'll see what we can do about a slider!

Looking forward to the slider. In the meantime, thanks for the (not ideal) option tip!

+1 for a text slider.

+1 for a text slider as well.

For what it's worth, I like the FCPX-style draggable text fields next to the slider (similar functionality to @Andrius “workaround” - minus the option key) - which provides 3 ways of adjusting text size: Image

But I know I’ll love whatever you come up with! Thanks!

We're trying to see how we can get the best of all three worlds (steppers + text entry + slider) in one simple interface. It's a bit of a challenge but I think we'll get there.

Andrius! What would life be without challenges? AND, I know you'll make it!

You are an awesome team!

Merry Christmas!
