Display all installed fonts (Word) using VBA in Microsoft Excel

The macros below will display a list of all installed fonts. Note! If you have many fonts installed,
the macro may stop responding because of lack of available memory.

Sub ShowInstalledFonts()

Dim fontName As String, i As Long, fontCount As Long, fontSize As Integer
Dim stdFont As String

        "Select Sample Font Size", 12)
    If fontSize = 0 Then Exit Sub
    If fontSize < 8 Then fontSize = 8
    If fontSize > 30 Then fontSize = 30
