The Find a New Style feature has been made much less helpful
One of my go-to features for creating posts was the Find a New Style button, which rotates different text treatments on text you select. Recently, I guess it was updated but it's awful now. It doesn't provide as many different suggestions, the ones it does show are very odd (making some text vertical, different sizes, etc.) and with each iteration, it makes the whole object smaller and smaller. I really don't think this is what was intended. If it doesn't get fixed, I'm going to have to consider alternatives. I need this feature!
YES!! What has happened to this feature? It used to be so helpful and even fun and now it doesn't work at all and is downright depressing! Please fix it!
The new features are a nice addition, but as it is, it's a huge step back from the previous system, which was really good. I see that the font size changing bug into becoming smaller and smaller was already fixed. Other than that, the "find a new style" button seem almost exclusively centered around the new text layouts, rather than using all available features.
I was trying it again just now. After what felt like 100 clicks and only changing the new text layouts while leaving everything else unchanged, it finally changed the text font, shape and colors all at once. For the next "100" clicks again it's just changing the new text layouts.
Just from trying it right now, I had issues with black font on black background as well, making words disappear. It also seems like the text font eventually changes to "Raleway Heavy" without ever changing again.
I'm sure you're aware of all these glaring issues or at least I hope so.
Ideally, you revert the "find a new style" button to its old and really amazing version and keep working on the new version in the background.
Please just give us the option to *turn off* these newer text layouts. The old options (many of which I really liked) no longer even show up in the rotation when I click "Find a New Style"!

Thanks for reporting these issues.
The Find a New Style button now exposes some newer text layouts (Curved, Rotate & fit, Drop cap etc.) which may be less generally applicable. Based on your feedback here, we are looking into reducing the frequency with which these new layouts are suggested. As well as fixing some bugs in this area.

100% AGREE! I used to use this feature almost every day to find alternative styles and fonts. Not only is it completely unusable now, some of the variations it comes up with are laughable. Just today I gave it another go (mistake), and several of the results with positioned half way off of the artboard. Uh...really?
Completely agree. The old version was great. This new version is unusable.
