Is it possible to change a selected piece of text with a font while clicking through the font character menu. I would love a more fluid way to view font types on a block of text until a preferred font has been chosen?
You can't click, so far as I know, but I do this all the time:
1) Select your text with the text tool
2) Select the font-name in the font dropdown. Don't pull it down; you just want the font name highlighted.
3) Use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys on your keyboard to scroll through the fonts
