While working with some text in Inkscape, I found an unpleasant behaviour of the text
selection field (the field above the font selection drop down menu): it is case sensitive.
When I type "Arial" in it and hit enter, the selected text's font is changed
to arial as it should. But if I type "arial" or "ARIAL", then I get a
warning that the font is not found/installed.
The expected behaviour is that no matter what case I enter in (like aRiaL) it must find
the font I'm looking for (this is the behaviour of Illustrator, Indesign, Corel,
Photoshop, Openoffice and many other programs).
Although it is not a real bug, it is IMO a usability issue.
By the way, I'm on Windows XP sp2. Is it the same on Linux? Mac? And should I fill a
feature request or a bug report?
