What fonts did I use?!?
I hope someone here can help.

For the past year I've been designing banners and other graphics for online shops. In the beginning I tried to save all the info that went into making the design in the image properties "comment" tab. Then I got lazy & stopped documenting.

Recently my computer died. It had to be re-formatted, so all data on the hard drive was lost. I had my work backed-up, so I didn't worry about it.

However, now when I open an old project, I have no idea what font/s I used. When I googled for a solution, I found this page:

I tried to follow the instructions to paste the given code into python, but got error messages.

Do you understand the instructions for using the script and can you help me to make it work? Or do you know of another way to find out the names of the fonts I've used?

Thanks for any help!

RE: What fonts did I use?!?
Thanks for answering - I thought that the script needed me to input some variables and that's why it gave me an error.

I do have the Python-fu console under Filters (it loaded so slowly I ended up opening 3 of them when I first tried the script). For "Filters/Render/Clouds/Fog" the word "fog" is there but grayed out.

Should I try to type each line into the Python console window? Not sure if I could get it right lol
