Why is my type not updating to new font selection?

Why is my text not updating to new font selection when I select from "Type > Font", not "Character > Set the Font Family"?

When I go Type > Font > and select Ari for example it doesn't update.

    Have you tried selecting one of the 4 listed in the small window?

    As Larry suggested, your screenshot shows that you haven't selected a font yet, but only the font family which doesn't apply a font. The font menu lists fonts and font families. A font family has an arrow at the right, and when selected reveals a submenu with the fonts in the family. You have to select one of these in order to select a font.
