My Font Preview Tool on PSE 9 has suddenly become unstable and I cannot change the Font presently showing. When I press the arrow to the right of the Preview Tool there is a Flash of the Font Menu but it never comes to rest so that I can make a selection. I am "stuck" with the present Font. How do I fix this? Ed Weidman

This could be an issue caused by a font conflict. Have you installed new fonts on this system? Has the font list ever worked?

If you disable font previews (Preferences>Type, uncheck "Font Preview Size"), are you able to view the list?

Do you use a font management utility? If so, try disabling large groups of fonts and test the font list to see if a specific font is causing this behavior.
