Don't you guys feel there's missing some typefaces organiser in Photoshop? I mean, I know we have font managers and everything but those are outside of the app, you set your collections nicely and then, open photoshop and there's a bigg mess in there.
I usually set up like 5 or 6 fonts for web, some for printing and so on, but photoshop displays all of them together, and, to be honest, I'm not interested in having arabic and japanese typefaces in the list to choose.
So I'm making this small extension, to create sets of typefaces you can access quickly.
There's one more feature that I think you guys will love, and it is to apply a selected type to all of the editable text fields in your file. It could be super useful to try some variations of your design.
I'm now wondering if I should brand it a little, or just leave it native, so it looks more integrated with the rest of the app.
What's your opinion? Do you find this one useful?
pd. I hope to have it ready to download by the end of the week :)

I could use that :D
Definitely, this is useful. Great @Miguel Oliva Márquez
I love the idea, and I would use it. Also I prefer it as it is, native look.
@Alvaro Nistal +1 for the native then! :D
I'd leave it native. IMO all the other extensions that have different styles and brandings look very out of place in ps. I get it that they want to differentiate themselves from the rest but still...
Yes yes. Very nice idea. Very useful.
Great, this is exactly what i need indeed !..
BTW "native" rulez !..
Where can I get this and why hasn't somebody done this for PS before?
This is awesome and it is looking perfect. Leave it as is.
awesome and +1 for native from me! :)
Nice idea! Keep us posted.
I think you're on to something. I would definitely use it.
@Stan Gursky I agree with that. I hate the different look in extensions, but, on the other hand, looking so native might get you the wrong impression that the extension came with the software itself, and takes away promotion opportunities...
@Marian Brchan just designing the landing right now, this is coming out pretty quick :)
Looks nice, you'll beat me to launching mine!
@Nathan Powell which one is yours? :O
You have a plugin icon, that's all we could ask, cool idea, native look is the best!
I love this... really amazing and feel the same pain you express every time I click the font drop down in the character palette. So many useless system fonts to sift through.
The only thing that I am curious about is the "set all" option. So, in your screen shot, would it change all the font layers to BentonSansF because that is the "active" field? I don't know if I would want all my type to be changed to one specific typeface. I usually use different type for headlines than body, etc...
Better not to work with type in photoshop, you going to get ugly fonts anyway. That is why so many people move to Sketch in our days.
@Anthony Fonte I hate the useless system fonts hehe. The "set all" would, indeed, transform all of the editable text fields into Benton Sans, the idea is that if you have tons of text defined in one font, you could try and see how the whole composition looks like with a different one. Of course, there are some fonts you wouldn't like to change but, if you used Helvetica as a base font and want to check how Open Sans look, it could be a quick shortcut to achieve it. Does that make sense?
@Tim I know, I know, the rendering of text is sh..t but... when you don't have any other choice, all you can do is turn your head down and say "It'll look better on the web"
@Miguel Oliva Márquez did you tried Sketch?
@Tim just once, I thought the UI was good but I still don't find it as a real competitor to Photoshop. It's quite fancy and has some strong points but PS is still a "standard" and nobody in my company uses sketch so...
