View a sample of all installed fonts
Authored by: cobbe on Apr 26, '07 04:40:00AM

I'm not able to see the script, let alone run it. If I understand the original post correctly, "Create Font Sample" should appear within the Font Book application as an item under the scripts menu (that is, the menu who's name is the unrolled-scroll icon). Is that correct?

I can't find the script anywhere within Font Book -- Spotlight finds it in /Library/Scripts/Font Book, but I don't even get the Scripts menu. The script doesn't appear in any of the other menus, either. What's going on?

OS X 10.4.9, PowerMac G5, with all security updates.

To get it to work for me I had the enable the Script menu item.
/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/Script Menu.menu

Or you can enable it with the AppleScript Utility

There's an other way too

I normally just about never use any scripts, and I don't want the ScriptMenu to be active all the time just for the occasional use of this script.
So I just looked for the script in Applications/AppleScript/Example Scripts and double-clicked it.
This will op ScriptEditor, with the chosen script open.
However, instead of editing the script, just click the 'Run' button, and that's that.
Hope this helps.
