    • To add a new size to the font size list, type the size in the New Size field and click Add (+).

    • To change the minimum and maximum values on the font size slider, type new values in the Max. and Min. fields.

    • To remove a size from the font size list, select it and click Delete (–).

  3. Click Done.

If you want to see what a font looks like as you adjust settings, open the Action pop-up menu (looks like a gear) in the lower-left corner of the Font panel and choose Show Preview.
