Hi,

I am using InDesing CS6 on Windows 11.

 

Is there a way to preview the fonts in the paragraph styles editor?

I know I can preview the fonts in the menu [Type]-[Fonts] but I am mainly using styles.

The easiest way is to create a text frame, to fill it with text and to apply the paragraph style you are building.

No you can't see the preview of the font in the Paragraph Style editor not even in the later versions of InDesign. The closest you could get to this functionally is as described by @jmlevy
