The font dropdown should probably show more than five lines. I have 
someo hundreds of fonts installed, and scrolling to see them all is 
tedious. All your installed fonts should be under the new entries.

My interpretation of the new font entries is that if you assign, for 
instance, "(System)" to a field, it will inherit the default system font 
for the OS currently running. You probably don't see any change because 
the IDE has already assigned that as the default font, but if you run 
the stack on Windows you'll see the Windows system font instead. I'm not 
sure what (Styled Text) or (Message) would do.
