Flip Through Your Font Families as Fast as an Arrow

You’re trying to select a font for a new ad campaign. So you type a headline in a frame across the top of your layout, but how can you quickly preview it set in all the font families that you have open on your system?

Let your arrows point the way. Select your headline, and in the Character palette, click anywhere in the font family name. Then use your up or down arrow keys to apply various type families to your text moving up or down in your font listing depending on which arrow key you hit. When you find the font family you prefer, press your tab key, then use your down arrow key to apply the various styles within that family. That’s fast!
