View a sample of all installed fonts
Authored by: craigw on Apr 25, '07 06:23:58PM
I highly recommend the free FontDoc app mentioned above. As a frequent user of fixed width fonts I find it baffling that FontBook does not include this property in a font's info. It should have smart collections, and monospace or variable width should be one of the available criteria! So I have used FontDoc to find all my fixed width fonts, And I now that I see this script, I have modified it to do the same. Simply replace the entire "try" block with something like this:

try
    tell paragraph paraIndex
        set font to psName
        set size to 14
        set characters to tab & "1111hhvviiiillllIIIIjjjj  -  " & psName & return & return
    end tell
on error
    set success to false
end try
if success then
    set paraIndex to paraIndex + 1
end if
try
    tell paragraph paraIndex
        set font to psName
        set size to 14
        set characters to tab & "kk77WWWWxxxxXXXXmmmmPPPP  -  " & size & return & return
    end tell
on error
    set success to false
end try
