Font Catalogue Custom.

JavaScript

I have to appologies for the delay but after loosing 500Gig of data I’ve been a bit busy. I have a new version of font catalogue available. This version not only allows you to enter custom text but select just the In Design font folder as the font source and also create any page size you wish.

dialog

1. Enter your own custom text or leave as default “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog “.
2. Select to exclude system fonts. This will allow you to create a catalogue of only the fonts in your In Designont folder.
3. Create your own page size, A1, A2, A3, Landscape, Protrait etc.

Download from adobe exchange.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any issues.

    I have written a similar script which lists all application fonts with an example text. I couldn’t realize it with your script, because I needed another layout with character and paragraph styles for a printing purpose. I’m struggling now with excluding the OS fonts. It would be nice of you, if you could give me a clue how you realized this issue in your script.

    Apologies Philipp for the late responce but been getting into Android development and have not been able to get to my site. If you look at the JavaScript reference you should find the option to flag non system font.

    Thank you for your reply! I have searched for hours now, but I can’t find this os font flag in the reference. There are just some examples of application fonts (including os fonts) and document fonts. Where do you mean?

    Hi Philipp I went back over my code the key is using app.fonts.everyItem().location this will return

    C:\Windows\Fonts\arial.ttf

    when you loop through your fonts check the location and if it has

    Windows

    in it you can leave it out if you wish. What you should get if you have fonts in you InDesign fonts folder is “C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS5.5\Fonts\#44v2s.ttf”. Hope this helps I will try and do a vid tut on this and post it. Been meaning to post some simple tuts this might be a good one to start on.

    Nice script. It works for me exactly as advertised. I noticed people were having trouble installing. On Mac in CS6 do the following:

    1) Open InDesign.
    2) From the top menu click to Windows > Utilities > Scripts
    3) Right click the User folder in the Scripts panel and click “Reveal in Finder”.
    4) Paste the unzipped FontListCustomDialog folder into the Scripts Panel folder revealed in Finder (zip downloaded and unzipped from Adobe Exchange).
    5) From InDesign Scripts panel, double-click the FontListCustomDialog.jsxbin file, which brings up the dialog to generate the font document.

    Do you know if this script also works with InDesign CS6?
