Hi Steve,

In addition to showing the typeface on the word "Sample", Photoshop will also show your typeface on your text in the layout.

  • Type tool
  • Select the correct Type layer
  • Do not make a selection or go into Edit mode. Doing so highlights your selection and it's easier to see if you skip this step.
  • Highlight the typeface in the panel, then use the up / down arrows on your keyboard to scroll quickly through the list.
