I want to audition fonts.
I create a text box, change font size in the dialogue on top of the text box, add text, select all text - and then go to the fonts dockable window and try to change the font. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, and sometimes only one line of text gets affected (while I have both lines selected)…
What is going on?
How can I get both methods to sync and affect my selected text?
I have a wild guess: carefully note if one or both lines of text are selected.
It’s a mistake I often do

No no … as I said, both are selected
The tools options/general font selection apply to the default text. When you apply a change via the on-canvas dialog, the selected text is put in its own bubble and is isolated from the general settings. If you want to remove the bubble and put the text back under the general control, select the text and hit the
Clear style of selected text button:
Thank you! so if I change the box parameters (and have the text selected) the tool parameters are useless?

Yes, if you changed all your text that way.
Hmmm … sounds more like a bug than a feature to me …
I don’t see the use - do you?
