Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Text enhancements & styles, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
Photoshop CS6 includes a handful of text enhancements, including a new type menu…and both Paragraph and Character styles.…I'm going to start things off by selecting the Type tool, which I can get by…pressing the T key and incidentally, if you're working inside the sample file,…note that it contains a couple of text layers that are set to a font that may…not be included on your system.…If you get a font warning, just accept it and change the text to whatever font you like.…Now when the Type tool is active, the Options bar starts off with a Font menu…that includes previews of each font over here on the right hand side.…
If you want to change the size of those previews, you can go up to the new Type…menu, choose Font Preview Size, and set it to whatever size you'd like.…I'm going to choose Extra Large and that will give me much larger previews as you can see.…All right, now I'm going to drag inside the image with the Type tool to create a…text frame. And notice if you go up to the Type menu the final Command is Paste…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
