MS Word-font preview gone!

By Ian Boothby ·
MS Word 2000 on XP Home - I used to get a preview of the font when I clicked the drop-down box in the toolbar, but this seems to have reverted to plain text now. How can I get the preview mode back?

see if this fixes it...snippped from mskb article 259583

To display font lists more quickly, you can set Word to list the fonts in a standard font instead of displaying each font name as a sample of the font.

NOTE: This setting affects lists that display fonts, such as the Font and Style lists on the Formatting toolbar.
On the Tools menu, click Customize, and then click the Options tab.
Click box to check the List font names in their font check box.
