Make an A4 font catalogue of your system using In Design

Uncategorized

If you want to have a simple catalogue of all the fonts on your system and fonts currently in the In Design fonts folder download and run this script.

Once you run the script a document will be created listing all fonts. The script will put down the name of the font, the style and the look of the characters in caps and lower case from a to z and 1 to 9.

Example:
Arial Narrow Regular
ABCDESFGHIJKLMNOPQRTSUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 123456789!@#$%^&*()

Export the document to PDF or print it as a reference document.

To install the script go to Windows menu then down to Automation and select Scripts.

Right click on one of the folders in the scripts tab and select the Reveal in Explorer option. Extract the script from the zip downloaded and copy it into the folder.

To run the script go back to In Design and double click the script in the scripts panel.

    That’s a very good point Boris. If there is enough interest I might give it a go for the next version.

    I recommended it on stumbleupon. The only thing that it’s missing is a bit of speed, the pictures are appearing slowly. Anyway thank you for this blog.
