In a previous tip, I showed you how you can increase the size of the font previews in the Font menu in Photoshop, but what if you don’t want to see the previews at all? Maybe you know your favourite fonts already – and the preview does slow the menu down slightly. So here’s how you switch them off.
Choose Edit > Preferences. Choose Type from the list of preferences that appear.
Then simply, click on the Font Preview Size to turn off the preview. (The checkbox should be empty after you do this.) The previews are now removed from your font dropdown menu.
