How To Scroll Through Fonts With Sample Text

Post by 2Design » Fri Nov 07, 2014 4:42 am

hi Guys, I'd like to be able to set my sample text and then scroll through my font list with my down arrow key to view the variations of my fonts. I'm unable to do this. Right now, I have keep sel;ecting the green button beside each font family to open the drop down list and then click each font. This process is too time consuming. Have I overlooked a feature that allows me to get around this? Cheers.

Bhikkhu Pesala is correct about the grouping, see the green ellipse in the below screenshot.

Then just click within the custom preview text edit box (red ellipse), and type your own text!
