Anything which does a good job of this? For many, many fonts?

I have Font Agent Pro, which does this, but not what I'd call a good job. It doesn't do page breaks, which I consider a pretty basic necessity when it comes to printing font samples.

there used to be many good apps, and I even looked for them a while back...

I think it depends on what kind of samples you need. Finding character mapping turned out to be tres difficile but there are many that will do simple alphabet/quick brown fox etc.

Have you tried using FontBook? Using the Repertoire setting under Report Type will give you all glyphs in a standard page layout.

Thanks all for the replies!

I did try Font Book, but for whatever reason it's totally borked. It won't print.

I found this, which seems like it will do the trick.
