Hi Alex,

I think there is a technical and an UX aspect to this question:

Hi Tav and devs,

I'm currently looking into getting rid of the deprecated GtkAction usage in the TextToolbar.  It seems that the only sticking point is the use of the Ink_ComboBoxEntry_Action widget to select fonts.

It should be OK to migrate this to a Gtk::ToolItem, but before I do that, I just wondered if we had considered using the standard GtkFontButton (https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkFontButton.html)?

This would provide a summary of the font face and size, but would pop-up a font-chooser dialog (https://developer.gnome.org/gtkmm-tutorial/stable/sec-font-chooser-dialog.html.en) rather than providing an entry in a combobox.  This could result in a less cluttered toolbar, but I suspect there might be some "clever things" going on in our font support, and I don't want to break anything without asking!

Any thoughts?
