Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching for fonts, part of Illustrator: 2013 Creative Cloud Updates.
Finding the right font for your design projects can be somewhat of a daunting …task, especially if you're someone like me who has 100's or even 1000's of fonts …installed on their system. So in this movie, I'm going to be …exploring the all new search capabilities that now exist inside of Illustrator, …which hopefully help you find the exact font you're looking for a little bit faster. …Let's go up to File menu and create a new file. …And I'm just going to hit OK, doesn't matter what size this is. …I'm going to grab the Text tool, and I'm just going to type out, Hello World. …And once I have that, I'll select it and let's blow it up to sometime like 72 …points, that way it's easy for us to see. There we go.…
I'll move it kind of over here to the side because I'm going to open up a panel …over here on the right. Let's go to the Window menu and bring up …the Type panel. Now, you could do this from the Control …panel across the top of screen. When you have a piece of text selected, …but I just want to bring up the panel so you can see it. …
