Printing font Examples?

I am using Font Explorer X which by the way is the best FMS I've used so far, and it's free. I find it a lot better then Suitcase Fusion, but anyway, I have one question. My font collection has grown tremendously over the years, and I am looking for a way to print out like a font bible of all the fonts on my computer. Is there an easy way to go about this? I have been looking, but haven't been able to find anything.

    well I was hoping there was a way to get like three colums on one page with 30 lines thats 90 on one page, and it would be 180 if i did it back and front. It would take me 25 pages to get all my fonts out on paper, and it would make my life a hell of a lot easier. sitting down withsomeone flipping through a book would a lot better then flipping on a screen.

    I used to print out font books, but that was so many years ago. It's such a waste that I don't mind a little extra time spent scrolling through a my screen. Plus, if you have something like Adobe Illustrator, you can see the font names in the actual font... I can't really think of anything like you describe otherwise.

    Yes, but only the activated fonts. If you have like many designers a zillion fonts on your computer, it's a little harder.

    A solution might be Veenix Font Tools. It prints a complete Type Book if you want. And you can safe the forest by making it a pdf instead.

    How does Font Book's File -> Print not do exactly that?

    Font Book leaves all of your fonts activated. If you have a lot of fonts, this is not the best thing in the world. That other app looks like an other FMS, I would hate to need to move to another one just to make a .pdf or print out a book. I guess I'll keep doing what I've been doing see if anything comes up. Thanks for the help though.
