Today's question is from Darius Gasior:
On a Mac, is there a way to cycle through the fonts, changing selected text as you go. Photoshop has this functionality (select text, highlight font name, and use the up/down arrows), and it seems like it would be a no-brainer to have it in Illustrator... I haven't found it yet, am I missing something?
SIGH. Photoshop does have this feature. And wouldn't you know it, Illustrator ALSO has this feature -- but only on Windows. For some reason, it doesn't work on Mac. It might be a side-effect on how interface elements work on the Mac, but unfortunately, if you're a Mac user, you're relegated to manually switching between fonts -- arguably a grueling task if you're trying to do some logo work and want to step through many different fonts quickly.
Wish I had a better answer for you. Maybe in CS3? Let's all hope.
