Standardize Font Appearance

OK I'm well on my way to standardizing fonts. However I have run across a bit of an issue. Take the Google font Aclonica. On the MacOS it appears on the fonts menu in the property editor as Aclonica Regular. But on Windows it appears as simply Aclonica. That means if you assign the font using the Fonts menu on MacOS, the fonts WON'T RENDER on the PC. But if you type, "Aclonica" then it works on both platforms.
The workaround is to type the name of the font (in this case Aclonica) without the Regular instead of using the Fonts menu in the property editor.
BTW the Fonts menu in the Property Editor needs a major facelift! You cannot hot-type to get to the font you want or even near it. Scrolling is a pain. If I start using a font file while the property editor is open, the new font will not appear until I close and re-open the property editor. Bleh.
Anyway I'll get around to an enhancement request soon.
