Photoshop: Increase font size in font preview

Adjust the font size in the Photoshop font preview

Every now and then I have a handy tip for Photoshop that I would like to share with you. In this case, it's something I keep googling every time I switch to a new Mac, because the setting is reset every time I reinstall Adobe Photoshop, and every time I forgot where the option for it was hiding. It's about the font size of the preview in Photoshop's list of fonts.

Problem: too small font in the font selection

If you work a lot with hundreds of fonts, the default size of the preview in the list of fonts is often much too small. If you want to work quickly and efficiently, it is helpful to have a larger preview here, in which you can better assess the effect of the font.

How to do this, I'll tell you in this short guide ...

The default font size in the font list preview is relatively small. Here's how to get it bigger.

Font preview from small to huge

Via the menu “Font” in Photoshop you can find the item “Preview size for font”. This in turn offers the following setting options:

  • without
  • small
  • medium-sized
  • very large
  • huge

I set myself “huge” because even “huge” is not really huge, but just reasonably large.

You can use the "Font" menu and the "Font preview size" item to set the size of the preview.

Greyed out menu item? That's how it works!

The menu item "Preview size for font" is robbed if you are currently in a text field with the text tool. To solve that, press ESC to leave the text area and then try again.

It worked for me and I was able to change the font size.
