To type French characters you normally don't need to worry about the font. With the US keyboard layout, just hold down the key for the base character and choose the accented version from the popup menu that appears (10.7 and later) or use the standard option key shortcuts you can find at http://symbolcodes.tlt.psu.edu/accents/codemac.html

You may be able to force Retina for an app with Retinizer: Retinizer is a small app I wrote that allows apps that aren’t retina ready and are displayed pixelated at 1x to display their UI widgets at ...

This works (at least in Yosemite Public Beta 2): Open Font Book, select "Custom" from the View menu, double-click in the preview area and type what you want. Then, close Font Book.

I have the same problem and desire to have Font Book behave the way it used to. I work in advertising and write headlines and subheads and want to easily scroll through a custom sentence while seeing the fonts change until one "leaps out at me" as the right one to choose!

I hope that helps in some way. ADDENDUM ...

The calendar app doesn't give you that level of flexibility. Apple has designed it to look a certain way, and that's the way it's going to look, bar some pretty serious hacking. Busycal is a calendar app that does use the calendar's color for the text, not just for the dot. The "Birthdays" calendar is a special one automatically generated based on the ...

To use it just choose the font** in any Application you want - including Excel.
