Font Preview?

Swift Publisher is really a great program and I have enjoyed using for the past year. One thing that has always bothered me is the Font selection. It is not very straightforward. Mac Pages (and many other software) offer a font preview such as the attached screenshot shows.

I have a lot of fonts and often find myself selecting and selecting and selecting (so I can actually see what the font looks like, not just a name), and finally opening a different program to preview the font I want to use because it is more efficient. Am I overlooking something here? Or is it really this difficult to select a font.

Yes, it's something that is lacking - it's a feature that's been around forever, I remember using Claris Works which had it, probably 25 years ago!
