Font Toolbar

Why can I not preview my fonts in the font pull down menu? Or, when I try scrolling through the menu with my arrow keys with text selected in my project, does font selection skip all over the place instead of going in order?

    1. Quit Illustrator.
    2. Rename the AIPrefs file (for example, to AIPrefs.old) in the Users/(user)/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator CS3 Settings folder.
    3. Start Illustrator. Illustrator creates a new preferences file.




    1. Quit Illustrator.
    2.Go to User/username/Library/Preferences/ Adobe illustrator CS4 Settings and trash the settings folder, the whole folder not just the contents of the folder..
    3. Start Illustrator. Illustrator creates a new preferences file.


    Other wise a corrupt font or font cache file or conflict with a plug in or other software.


    It works fine here.It does not update on the canvas on a Mac.
