Adobe InDesign Font Catalog

This JavaScript for Adobe InDesign creates a font catalog of all fonts from the InDesign application font directory. System fonts and user fonts (in Apple OS X) are not included. All styles can be changed by character and paragraph formats. The colors and the layout is similar to Adobe's Type Library Reference Book.

This is almost exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks very much for making it available.

The only issue I had was with the way the script deals with overset text — it deletes the last font entry from the bottom of the text frame, but does not reinstate it at the top of the next frame (ie. the font doesn't get added to the catalogue).

I added "i=i-1" to the 'if' block and that seemed to fix it (sorry, I don't know proper javascript-speak).

Anyway — thanks again for sharing this with us. You Rock.
