    How do I rapidly try different fonts like I could in CS3?


      When working with text in a design, a common activity is testing different fonts to see which looks best. This was a very simple in CS3 with its Text Editor dialog:


      1. Right-click on text block, choose Editor...
      2. Click on font drop-down and start hitting the down arrow


      Every time you hit the down arrow, the text would update in-place, making it a cinch to find just the right font.


      When CS4 was in beta, this functionality seemed to be lost. I brought it up in the beta forums but never received a reply. Now with CS5, I was hoping this rapid previewing would be possible, but I'm just not seeing it.


      Can this rapid testing of fonts be done in CS5 or am I stuck with CS3 forever?
