Using PowerShell To List All The Fonts In A Word Document

Recently I was challenged by a coworker to use PowerShell to list all the fonts in a Word document. It turned out to be easier than I thought it would be… but also slower than I thought it would be. Here’s what I came up with.

There could very well be a better way of doing this but this is what I came up with in a hurry. Line 1 declares a new instance of Word and line 2 opens the document we’re looking at. Then, for each word (which is handily a property of the open word document), we’re expanding the font property and selecting all the unique names of the fonts on line 3. Lines 4 and 5 close the document and quit Word.

So you can get something like this!
