Font Preview jumping all over- Photoshop CC.

Photoshop CC Font preview: Unlike prior versions of Photoshop, the font drop down/preview box jumps (width-wise) as I scroll, making it VERY hard to read, to scroll, to find & select fonts. This happens on the top menu bar as well as the character panel.

=>I don't want to turn off preview entirely since I need to know what a font looks like (I don't have them all memorized), but it would be REALLY helpful to have a fixed size font display/drop down box that doesn't jump all over the place as I scroll, similar to your functionality in CS6.

The overall box could scale (and then remain STATIC) based on the font preview size, but not change dynamically for each font. For long-named fonts: you could put a scroll bar at the box bottom, or just cut off the display, if necessary. I use Windows 7 Ultimage/64 bit. Seriously giving me a headache, so going back to use CS6 . . . which isn't fun since I'm paying for creative cloud subscription for other products. :(

Hi Laron,

Could you take a video of what you're describing?  Or could we set up a web-hosted meeting where I can see your screen.  What you're describing shouldn't happen.  I'd like to help get to the bottom of this.
