    wotcha;

    i'm using Indesign 2 and have a lot of fonts installed.

    i'd like to generate an (several sheets of)A4 quick-reference card/list thingo that would basically be:

    <font name>
    a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z [ ] \ ; ' , . /
    A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z { } : " < > ?
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - =
    ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ +

    in each of the font's i have installed.

    i thought Automator might help, but as i'm brand new to OS-X (and deadline looms) i'm not sure how to do it.

    any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
    cheers

    Oh, and there's also LinoType's recent FontExplorer. It's free and may be able to print sample sheets... I use Suitcase so haven't downloaded and tried it yet.

    thanx for the links, i checked VersionTracker and found FontDoc 1.1.2 which neatly fulfills my needs.
    cheers

    Have you tried the TextEdit App? :)

    Just for the record, FontParade prints a list of your fonts (one line of text specified by you). Means you can get a sample of all your fonts on 10-20 pages or so.

    And eBookfaces makes a fairly extensive character page, but you have to do each one separately.

    Anyway, glad you found something.

    By the way, just started using FontExplorer, and it is very good indeed....
