The following will at least get a list of ANSI fonts and sort them in
alphabetical order for you:
put fontNames() into varTempPreProcess
put the number of lines of varTempPreProcess into varTemp
put 1 into varCounter
repeat varTemp times
put line varCounter of varTempPreProcess into varTempFont
if the fontLanguage of varTempFont is "ANSI" then
put varTempFont & return after varFontMenuBuild
put varCounter + 1 into varCounter
sort lines of varFontMenuBuild
the variable "varFontMenuBuild" now holds the sorted list of fonts.
From there you can either make your own font dialog, or maybe a menu.
There are probably other ways of doing this, but this is what I have.
I've only been using Rev since late 2005, so I'm not an old pro at it
yet like so many others here. ;-)
