When selecting an available font family in the drop down window I can see the font style Sample.
Why do the Asian font families show Asian characters instead of the English Sample when the font is English letters?
I have been using Photoshop products for 10 years and until now have had no reason to care, but I am looking for a specific font style and the lack of a "sample" is annoying.
Is there a way to deal with this? The same can actually be said for font families in C:/Windows/Fonts.

"Sample" is just there to show you how the font would look like when you use it for your text. Though Asian fonts often come with English alphabet letters, they are primarily used for Asian languages - hence they don't show "Sample", but e.g. "서체견본", "書体見本" or "字体样本" (all which also seem to just mean "sample").

Note that this is just my assumption. I could be wrong.
Thank you for the quick response. I had also noticed that this format is also shown when browsing Windows fonts. And I decided since there are similar fonts I can hide yhe Asian font familes from PS as I am only a hobbyist and I don't need that many fonts.
As I can't seem to edit my reply, let me add, I have found an open source font editor that I can supposedly change what font is shown on the folder view. I haven't learned how to do that just yet, I will mention it here once I do, in case others might like this information.
