One of the planned improvements is to add a dialog to the font sampler gui to 
select the samples point size and also the actual sample strings to be 
printed out but unfortunately I have not had time to add this feature to the 
script yet.

It is quite easy to alter the font point size in the script but the height of 
the samples text frames may need to be adjusted too. The existing sizes were 
a compromise chosen to get 3 different fonts sampled in popular sizes onto 
each page using both A4 and the shorter US Letter paper.
