Thanks for the input Alastair, for now I think I am going to have a button launch the Font Book.app and have a text field in the GUI beside it that I can write my font choice in. Most certainly not an elegant solution, but for now I think it might work. I think this is something worth exploring getting a GUI node for. I will look into your suggestion on using a shell script though.

But you're right not having a native UI tool for fonts or one that can build a drop down menu for selecting form that list is problematic. I really hope this gets added soon.

Font selection from list for use within composition - Is this even possible?

I am trying to make a GUI that allows for some customization of the text output in a second window; so I'm wondering if there is a way to have Vuo make a list of all available Post Script fonts on a system for use inside the running composition (not the editor) so a user can select a font they want to use from a list somehow? Kind of like how Photoshop (or any other application) that works with text will give you a list of available fonts and allow the user to pick the one they want to use.

That sound great! Looking forward to it.

I will have to sift through my comp to see if I can determine why mine is acting differently.

I had a look at my composition and there isn't a Window attached to the Keyboard Buttons node however the composition only works when the Window on my Primary screen is the active one.
