Default Font versions

Hello,



Is it possible to create a macro which generates a list of fonts and versions used in a document?

As an example, listing the fonts as follows:

Arial = version 6.8
Arial Narrow = version 2.40
Times New Roman = version 6.7

Ideally, the font list/version should be generated in a new Word document or it can be simply generated in a separate .txt file.

Thanks!

Whilst getting the font names is quite straightforward, there is no VBA property for returning a font's version. In any event, the font version is usually of no consequence and tends to change with each Windows version.

Sadly, the macro in that link is incredibly inefficient - it could even take hours to run on a document that uses only one font...

Instead, try the code I posted in: https://www.eileenslounge.com/viewto...=26652#p206556

Yes, you are right; it is also mentioned under the code on that page.
