DON'T LIKE THE FONT PREVIEWS? TURN 'EM OFF

I know everybody and their uncle has been waiting patiently for years to get font previews in the Font menu, but personally, they drive me nuts. Maybe it's the type freak in me that has led me to memorize what my favorite installed fonts are, but whatever it is, I hate seeing those previews (plus, it does slow the Font menu down a bit), so I turn it off. If you have the same level of disdain that I do for font previews, here's how to turn them off: Press Command-K (PC: Control-K) to bring up Photoshop's Preferences, then press Command-9 (PC: Control-9) to jump to the Type preferences. Now turn off the checkbox next to the Font Preview Size pop-up menu, and they're wiped from your Font menu.
