The on-canvas text editor works /very/ differently from the earlier
"in its own box" text editor. The first thing I would try is
opening the image, selecting the text layer I want to work on,
activate the Text tool, and click on the text to bring up the
on-canvas editor. Then /select/ all the text with the mouse, then
/change/ the font name in the small on-canvas control box.
