Font menu is microscopic - can I change it?

The font menu in the Effect Controls panel is so small that the preview (the word "Sample") is useless. Is there a way to enlarge that, like in After Effects?

 

I'va attached a screen shot of the PPro font list. I haven't scaled it down in Photoshop to 25% or anything, even though it appears so!

Looks normal to me.

What is your screen resolution?

It might be "normal", but it is totally useless. There is no way to properly see the difference between, say, Kinesis Pro 3 and Land Rover - two entirely different fonts. Compare it to the After Effects font menu, which I screen-shot on exactly the same 4K 32" screen (with no Windows scaling/magnification - the system is set to display at 100%). As well as being tiny, some of the Premiere font samples are not even anti-aliased, like some pre-Adobe Type Manager bitmapped Macintosh System 7 fonts! Compare Liberation Serif at the bottom of the list.

In an ideal world, Premiere would use Illustrator's font menu, whose preview can be made massive:

I have the same problem. The font menu is like a a gimmick. Completely useless. I'd also appreciate if it was possible to make the font previews as large as needed, without having to go the extra step of using a different application.

I don't see what the problem is:

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

 

:microscope: I think I'll use "Parchment" - that looks like a good choice in that list.

(it's not even anti-aliased!)

If you highlight the text in the EGP you can scroll through the fonts with mouse/page up-down.

In whatever fontsize you want.

Thanks. I tried that, since I'm used to doing it that way in Photoshop, but in Premiere the text doesn't change until I hit enter. Then I need to highlight it again, move the cursor back to the font menu and select the next font and so on. This takes a long time.

Thanks for following up. I checked again. You're right. I had misunderstood the instructions. It works using the mouse wheel. Solved my problem, thank you!

Pick your font in Illustrator then simply bring it into PP.

Like Ann said, if you select your text in the program monitor, just a simple click, then when you scroll the list of fonts, you'll see it change on screen. And you could enlarge the text etc, to see it any size.
