I presume you're talking about e.g., Show Fonts -> Extras -> Edit Sizes -> List and Slider, which is an option as you say in "[typical] Cocoa applications". Keynote provides something it calls the Text Inspector (see http://www.darwinsys.com/training/keynote/text-inspector.jpg if you don't have Keynote yet) which does not have this feature. BUT the one you're referring to is in fact found where you'd expect it, under Format -> Fonts -> Show Fonts. You'd also want to up the "Minimum" size there from 72 if you're using it for copy-fitting larger titles.


So, thanks for the tip.
