Font Sampler Script
Creates pages for the Scribus page layout program that contain blocks of samples for each selected font. Currently puts three fonts per page in an assortment of popular sizes.
This python script uses Tkinter to create a dialog. The dialog contains two panes. The left side lists all the fonts available to Scribus. The right side shows all the fonts the user has chosen to be used in the font sample sheets. The order of the displayed fonts can be adjusted with the up and down buttons.
- Creates font sample sheets in Scribus
- Shows fonts in a number of useful sizes
- Uses Scribus to create PDFs of your font catalogs
- Select many fonts to use at once by drag clicking with mouse to highlight, then clicking the ">" button. Other selection options are available while holding down the Control or Shift key.
