Ok, I finally learned how to use Motion 3 (Ive only have it for over 1.5 years). There is just so far one thing that I cant seem to find out how to turn on. This should be a simple one. When I select the text tool and type some text, I hit Esc so my text is ready and bring up my HUD. Then I want to preview different types of fonts, normally you just hold your mouse over the different fonts or use the arrow keys and it should change the previews of the font. However mine does not. I must click on each font to see it. This is very time consuming, I have looked at all the menus I can find and dont see how I can make this happen.

Any ideas?

If you are holding down the mouse button and not letting go as you scroll and doing this in the HUD it should work. You may want to take a look at this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1885
