DONE: list fonts in MS Office documents
« on: April 20, 2006, 05:17:58 PM »
How about a small app. that can take a Microsoft Office document (word, excel, or powerpoint) and list all of the fonts that are used in the document?  I do some desktop publishing with submissions from multiple authors. I always end up with a complex document containing plenty of fonts - but no way to tell which ones were actually included.

thx!  Mike

 :) Try this one!
It's not perfect, but I think you can figure out what fonts are used.

UsedFonts - Show what fonts are in use by a Microsoft Word document.

Features:
- Run it to show a file selection dialog, add a file to the command line, or drag and drop a document on the exe file.



You'll find the downloads and more info at 1 Hour Software by Skrommel.

I feel a little silly, but I didn't see that utility on your page?

Skrommel-

I often embed the fonts in my files, but that makes them heaview, so this is great!

Can you also apply some type of Font substitution option? This way I can choose some of the more similar fonts (or fonts that were used previously and perhaps reside in traiiling spaces, etc) and switch them for something else.

Thanks!

 :tellme: I'm afraid that's too big a task for me.

The internal workings of the OLE 2 Compound Document format is way beyond my remaining brain capacity.

However, the recipient of your documents can use Tools, Options, Compatibility tab, then click the Font Substitution button to change missing fonts.
