That text+fonts plug basically turns the title tool into a dumbed down version of Boris. Use Boris. I get stuck using the other a lot because a client prefers it-- they've got a bunch of editors who never bothered to learn to use Boris. Ugh.
Just so you know, there is one reason that I know of to use the default text tool. if you're doing subtitles, you'll be able to export an xml file and with the right software, convert it to a file that you can import into dvdsp or many other programs. AFAIK, this won't work with Boris.
