Photoshop is all about using shortcuts, so why do we have to navigate through the long list of fonts, rather than being able to press a letter on the keyboard enabling us to jump down to a spot in the list. If I want to see fonts that start with the letter "r", I should be able to press "r" and jump immediately to that spot on the list.

You can -- just start typing the name of the font and the list scrolls to complete the name.

Chris, I check it again and my current Photoshop setup isn't working that way. Do I need do something in preferences?

No, just click in the font name field and start typing.

I got it now. I had been trying to make the selection after opening the font list. Thanks Chris.
