You can't. This is a feature that works on the Windows versions, but does not work on the Mac Versions.

And no, it hasn't changed in CS4 either.

And that's just bloody ridiculous.

Let me add a post script.... it hasn't been changed in the late beta version of CS4 I've seen. I can't speak directly for the shipping version. But I agree, it should have been fixed.

I never thought it was a problem. Click on the Font Menu arrow in the character palette. You get a font list that extends from top to bottom of your screen. There are little arrows at the top and bottom of the list. Mouseover these arrows and the list scrolls. Move the mouse over the list and it stops scrolling so that you can select the font you want. At least that's the way it works on CS2. Suits me fine.

If a font in your list is highlighted first, Then you can toggle using the arrow keys.
