List Fonts


“List Fonts” is a fonts utility script using the JSON Action Manager scripting library.

This stand-alone script written in JavaScript opens a dialog box with a text field containing a JSON object listing all fonts currently available in Photoshop. You can copy or save the generated JSON text.

Font families and styles are organized in the same way they are displayed in the character palette or in the type tool bar.

List Fonts Dialog (Mac OS X)


  • In Photoshop CS2, the above dialog is omitted, and a standard save file dialog is directly displayed instead, asking where the generated JSON text should be saved.
  • In Photoshop CS, the generated JSON text is directly saved to a default file located on the user’s desktop.


This script can be used in Adobe Photoshop CS or later. It has been successfully tested in CS and CS4 on Mac OS X, but should be platform agnostic.

Download the Zip file and unzip it.

Move the script to the Presets/Scripts folder in the default preset location of the Adobe Photoshop application. On next launch, the script will get directly accessible from Photoshop’s File menu: in Photoshop CS or CS2, it will appear in the File>Scripts submenu, among all other scripts sorted by lexical order; from Photoshop CS3, it will appear grouped by category in the File>Automate submenu.
