Can I customize 'Line used with font listing'

Post by PaperPrincess » Mon Oct 09, 2017 2:52 pm

I would like to print a font list, either full or compact, but with custom text. When I go to the print dialog, is there no way to change the selections in the 'Line used with font listing' drop down? I do wedding invitations and I would like to easily print the bride & groom's name in all the selected fonts to allow them to make a choice (and see if there's any ugly characters!)
Is this possible?
Don't want to have to print a separate font info sheet for each possible font...

You can change the text used by font listings on the Text tab of the Print dialogue.

To restate my query, I would like to print a font list , either full or compact, but with custom text.
I think the text input box you refer to is only used by "Font Information" layouts, which print one font per page with lots of extra info that I don't need.
Just want one or two lines per font.
My old (mac) font application did this.
