OpenOffice Scrolling Through Text Fonts


I am wondering in OpenOffice Writer or Presentation how I can select text and then scroll through the different fonts to decide which looks best.

Naturally, I can select the text, scroll down the font-box, click on the font desired and then start the process all over again to select a different font. However, this is very very annoying.

The drop-down menu remembers your earlier font preferences and changes the order of appearance of fonts.

For what you want ... see kfont...
