Font preview
Published on August 30th, 2011

Unlike Photoshop, Illustrator won’t allow you to have a preview of the fonts on the Character Panel (Windows users only). For a preview of your fonts go to Type -> Font, or, with the selection tool or type tool, select your text, right click and choose Font. Make sure Font Preview in enable by going to Preferences -> Type . There you can also set the preview size.
