Print My Fonts
On this page, you can find a short introduction into the program PrintMyFonts. If you should be interested in an explanation of a specific function, you should have looked on the page functions.
Your first Font List
After you have started the program, you should see something like it is shown in the screenshot below this text.
On the left, you can see a list of all fonts that are installed on your system. This is the list, that will be printed or exported later (of course, you can also filter this list). On the right, you can adjust some settings. For example, which text should be exported and in which export format.
When you have the desired fonts in the list and when all settings are okay, you can click on the button "Export". With this, the export is executed.
Select and Filter Fonts
If you only want to export specific fonts, there are two possibilities for you: You can select some fonts and the list and remove them by using the DEL key or the right mouse button. Or you can use the field "Filter" on the right. In this field, you can type multiple search terms separated by a comma or semicolon or you can use the minus sign in front of him to exclude the term from the search. Both possibilities can be used to reduce the list and accordingly only export or print the fonts that are left.
In the section "Which text should be written", you can determine which text should be outputted in the corresponding font and which text should be outputted in the uniform default font. Using the checkbox, it is possible to only write one of those text types into your list. You can use arbitrary characters or sentences for both texts and in both texts, you can use placeholders that I changed to an individual content depending on the font and the position within the list. For example, the placeholder %name% will be replaced by the name of the font and %num% will be replaced by the number of the font within the list.
Choose Export Format
The section "Which export formats would be used", you can specify whether the list of fonts should be printed or saved as image or document when clicking on "Export". In the menu "Settings > Export Print / Image / Document", you can change the default settings for each export format type.
Fonts from Font Files
Aside from the fonts installed on your system, with PrintMyFonts it is also possible to display fonts from font files that are not installed yet. Font files can just be dragged onto the application or you can use the button "Manage Font Files" to search folders or to remove fonts from the list again.
First you should download the program from the download page. The file is packed into a ZIP archive that you normally should be able to unpack with your computer. If you can not open the file, we recommend the free program 7-Zip which also can handle many other files. You can download this software from the page 7-zip.org for free.
After you have unpacked the program, you can already use it. An installation is not required. If you nevertheless would like to make a shortcut for the program, simply click with the right mouse button on the icon and choose "make shortcut". You can move this shortcut to an arbitrary place on your computer.
This application is offered in several languages. If the program is already supporting the language of your operating system, it will try to start with this language. You can also change and save your preferred language under "Settings > Language" every time during runtime.
