3. Formatting, Printing, and Table Hacks > 15. Sample Your System Fonts

Sample Your System Fonts

Your system probably offers more than 100 fonts. How do you choose the right one? If you rely on simple trial and error, you’ll quickly find yourself frustrated. Instead, use this hack to get a sample of every available font.

The tried-and-true method of choosing a font in Word is to select some text and then scroll through the Font pull-down menu on the Formatting toolbar until something strikes your fancy. But when you can see only about a dozen fonts at a time, as in Figure 3-4, it’s hard to compare all your options.
