Default Too many fonts - Not enough time

Attached is a Word file I made sometime ago.
You must enable macros.

To use, download the file, open in Word, enable macros.
Do a Ctrl A to select all (which is merely so the macro works).
Alt F8 and run the macro NameFonts.

The macro will find all the fonts that are on your computer and paste the entire alphabet and symbols into the document.

The document itself is formatted as landscape and three columns.

On my computer, it resulted in 12 pages.

Now you have examples of fonts that potential sign customers can pick from.
And please, no ALL CAPS Old English signs!!

Of course, after getting all the fonts into the Word file, you can delete those you'd never use, change the columns to 2 instead of 3 and increase the font size.

Hope it works for you.

Ralph ~ For those of us who use Word but are leery of changing our macro settings, I raise this question: If we enable our macro settings and download your font macro and save it to our hard drive, can we then reset our Word program back to the default (which blocks all macros) and still run your application. There is a good reason for having the MS Trust Center to block macros which might contain viruses. Thanks.

Good point.

I have Word 2010 so I can answer for that version.
Go to the Trust Center and set the macro setting to Disable with notification.

File, Options, Trust Center, Trust Center Settings, Macro Settings.
Choose: Disable all macros with notification.

Now any Word document that has VBA macros, the enable macros will be your choice each time. If the highest setting is chosen in the Trust Center, you would never be alerted to the existence of the macros.

This Trust Center settings for each Office application (Word, Excel, Access etc) are separate. You can set each to a different level. My Excel and Access settings are the lowest as I program primarily in Excel and Access.
