Seeking tool that does this.

Seeking Windows software that will inspect all my fonts (truetype), installed or not, and show the meta information (name, family, foundry, character set...)

AND

allow me to export that info into Excel or CSV

I already have a Font Manager tool that lets me inspect and manage all my TrueTypes, and it shows - on the screen - all the information I need in a tabular format. But for reasons that remain mysterious to me, it won't allow me to cut/paste the info out of it, and there is no built-in "export" feature.

if you've ever seen a tool like this, can you educate me? thanks

I found a simple PHP class that can extract metadata from a TTF. Not quite what I was looking for, but it did the job.

I read it could crash your fonts folder as its still in beta. But users have made copies of their font folder and had success using it on the copy.
