View Full Version : Word 2000 Sample Font List Macro

02-02-2004, 09:54 PM
Ho people.
About five years ago PC World published a neat little Macro for Word 97 which, when run, producd a multi-page sample of all the system's fonts.
A full A-Z in upper and lower case and the numbers, etc.
Now using XP PRO and Word 2000, I'm having difficulty compiling a Macro to do the same. Any help appreciated.

Try this,

Sub listfonts()
Dim listFont As Variant
For Each listFont In FontNames
With Selection
.Font.Name = "Arial"
.Font.Size = 12
.TypeText listFont
.TypeText Text:=Chr(11)
.Font.Name = listFont
.TypeText Text:=Chr(11)
.TypeText "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
.TypeText Text:=Chr(11)
.TypeText "1234567890!@#$%^&*()"
.TypeText Text:=Chr(11)
.MoveDown Unit:=wdParagraph, Count:=1, Extend:=wdMove
End With
Next listFont
End Sub

Russel & Babe
Much appreciated. I spent far too much time trying to modify the '97 version to meet 2000's requirements. Thanks again.
