    does anybody have the problem when scrolling through fonts in illy that it gets hung up on one font, then skips to the end, making it real annoying to scroll through fonts? thought i fixed it by hiding or deleting the fonts that were getting stuck on and it worked for about 20 min. but then it just started getting stuck on different fonts. i think it might have something to do with downloaded fonts but im not sure. Any ideas?

    I figured this out once.
    In your type preference Uncheck Enable Missing Glyph Protection

    I have the same issue in Inkscape, I think it's because it's trying to render so many previews at once from so many different files. Now that I think about it, could be similar to how big files take longer to load if they're fragmented, where the fonts are all scattered around the hard drive and it has to look all over like crazy to find them all.

    I've found that most adobe products are plagued with a lot of bugs and are inferior for most design work. I never hear anything good about it :)

    I believe this issue is due to poor typefaces, as the OP hinted.
    If I understand this correct, the protection's designed to keep lazy designers safe from choosing a font that's missing something in the copy
    i.e. parentheses, quotes-marks, commas, an entire lowercase.....

    I have also had this problem in illustrator... To fix: Edit>Preferences>Type> make sure "enable missing glyph protection" is checked. This seemed to work for me.

    I always hated that - figured it was something I just had to live with.
