Intel Mac :: Restore Fonts In Library?

May 17, 2012

When I download a font, I drag & drop it in to Macintosh HD - Library - Fonts.†I basically want to restore the fonts in this folder to the ones that came with my Mac, so I can start from scratch, and catalogue where I get fonts from, make sure they're from a reputable source etc.¬† So how do I do this?¬†I thought I could restore from Time Machine, but I can't, as I imported everything across from my old iBook & the fonts were messy on there too.¬† I tried logging in as Admin rather than my user, but they're not "original" there either.¬† I also wondered if I could do it from the original install disk, but it looks like I'd have to reinstall the whole system, which I don't want to do!¬†I could manually delete the ones that shouldn't be there if anyone has a list of the originals..?¬†

Intel Mac :: How To Restore Missing System Fonts

May 22, 2012

I recently installed a couple font management tools and ever since I have noticed that I don't have the full list of default system fonts. Below is a screenshot of what I have. I notice that there are a lot of missing fonts that should be there such as Georgia, Trebuchet, Verdana and many more. Is there a way to reinstall them or restore them? I tried the restore Standard Fonts option in Font Book but says no problems encountered. I also downloaded a program called Pacifist but don't know what to do next.

Software :: Missing System Fonts - How To Restore Them

Feb 16, 2007

A couple of weeks ago I had a mess by copying fonts on /Mac HD/Library/Fonts. I Used Lynotype Font explorer to "Clean" my system folder. The problem that I have found is that it has erased (or I Have Erased) some of the files thst should be on this library/fonts folder.

Now Im getting a lot of Not found files. Doing a Spotlight search I connot find the files in My HD. Checking one by one from a list published by someone in this place I have manged to identify at least 15 without even getting to the letter D.

The question is... Is there a way to "Reintall" this fonts from the DVD's without having to reintall my whole operating system?

OS X :: Microsoft Folder In Fonts Library

Feb 28, 2010

I've been cleaning some stuff from my computer and noticed Microsoft folder in /Library/Fonts folder (not in my user Fonts folder). I figured it was from Office back when I installed it and the uninstalled it but it obviously didn't unistall these fonts. Many of the provided fonts are already available on the OSX so I figured it is safe to remove that folder. But it wasn't. Firefox lost all the text so I had to restore that folder and then everything was OK. Is it possible to remove link with that fonts and leave it to OS fonts?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: TextEdit 1.7 Will Not Display Users/Library/Fonts

Mar 14, 2012

Having upgraded to Lion 10.7.3, the TextEdit 1.7 (289.3) application does not display any fonts placed in Users area: Mac HD/Users/Library/Fonts.  But the same fonts are OK when placed at Public area:  Mac HD/Library/Fonts.  Tried Repairing Permission via Disk Utility with no joy. Although fonts placed at Users area don't display in TextEdit, they do display in Quark XPress, FileMaker, OpenOffice, Illustrator etc, etc.

OS X :: Restore Library From Backup

Oct 9, 2009

My friend told me the above happened to her. She has all old pictures, but nothing from this month. This occurred after she got a message asking if she wanted to update the library -- this message came from out of the blue and she answered yes. I am trying to restore the library from a backup, but every time it tries to restore it says there is no permission to access the iphoto library. When I click on get info I see that she has read and write permission, but still she gets the message. Can I change the permissions on a time machine file? She is using Iphoto 9 and Snow Leopard.

ITunes :: Restore Library From Ipod

Aug 22, 2010

I opened itunes today and all my music was gone for no reason. The files were still there, so I imported the itunes music folder. That would have worked, but most of my music is in .wav, so all the albums and artists got lost leaving a big jumble of songs. Everything is still intact on the ipod. Is it possible to restore the itunes library from the ipod or am I stuck re-ripping all my CDs?

ITunes :: Can't Select Library To Restore?

May 15, 2012

I have followed the steps for restoring my iTunes library from my Time Machine backup. When I go to choose the library (which I copied to my new computer), the file remains grey and can't be selected. I copied two companion files that had .itdb labels as well as the library file (all were from the most current backup and showed that I had opened them the last time I used my computer before it died). I could not find any .xml files related to this iTunes library (some of the help said there would be files like this as well). My old computer was running iTunes 10.6.1, same as my new computer. Suggestions? 

The old computer is a 2008 MacBookPro. I can't get it to start up at all, but have the Time Machine backup from the last time it opened (last week). I'm trying to open the library on a 2011 MacBook Air.

OS X :: Restore IPhoto Library With Time Machine

Nov 28, 2009

I use a white Macbook running 10.5.8. Alright, so this morning, I tried to restore my iPhoto library using Time Machine to about 2 months ago, since I had deleted some pics. Long story short, it didn't seem to work, so I restored the backup from this morning at 11 am, the latest backup, since I had just uploaded some new photos today. Now my iPhoto library is empty. There are just outlines where my pics used to be, and it seems to remember events and all, but there are no pics or videos at all. Everything is gone. I'm just lost and feeling a bit nauseaus that I may have lost 40 some gigs of photos.

ITunes For Mac :: How To Restore Library To Music Folder

Dec 4, 2014

I've just had to do a complete restore of my iMac.  It was acting very oddly, so I chose to restore the Applications and the System Settings manually, especially as a full restore did not fix the problem. 

In the process, I did not restore my Music folder and, to boot, the Time Machine backup files seem to have gone invisible to Time Machine as I cannot see them in Time Machine.  I can, however, see them in the finder and have been able to restore most everything from the backups.  I have been able to bring the iTunes file onto the desktop, but want to put it in the Music folder shown in the panel on the LHS of the Finder window.  The system will not permit me to put it there, or am I missing something?  iTunes runs just fine from the file, but I'd like it to be in the right place, and not on my Desktop.  This is all with the latest Yosemite.

OS X :: Backup - Restore Just A Couple Of Photos From My Iphoto Library?

I am using an Intel MacBook 2.4 Mhz 2Gb RAM and OS 10.6.5. Time Machine has never successfully backed-up so I have been using Backup which works fine. However I now want to restore just a couple of photos from my iphoto library. Is this possible because it only seems to offer the option of restoring the whole library?

Applications :: ITunes Music Library Restore From IPod?

Nov 4, 2010

My problem is this: A few weeks ago, the (not over-worked at all) HD of my two and a half year old MBP crashed completely. Fortunately, I have Applecare, so the HD was replaced without any difficulty and free of charge, and returned reasonably rapidly. However, all of my data, and perhaps equally upsetting, my entire iTunes collection (not far off 6,000 songs) has also vanished into the ether of cyberspace. (Did I have anything backed up? Um, no. Second moral of the story: Back-ups are Good).

Anyway, I have the entire music collection on two iPods, a classic (80GB) and a iTouch (64GB). My problem is how to restore this collection to iTunes, as syncing either of them at present may result in the further obliteration of the music collection. So, fellow denizens of MR, advise me please: What is the best way to attempt to restore - from an iPod to iTunes - a prized music collection? Senuti has been mentioned; is it recommended, and what does it entail? It was also suggested to me that I use the Classic for this attempted restoration, rather than the Touch.

Applications :: ITunes Not Restore All Files From Music Library XML

Nov 14, 2008

I had to move around my files recently so needed to change the location iTunes looked for them. I ran across a hack whereby you edit the iTunes Music Library.xml file and then intentionally corrupt the iTunes Library.itl file so that it reimports the next time you restart iTunes (I'm sure many of you may already be familiar with this hack).

It almost works. Problem is that it doesn't import all my files. I have over 10000 files but it only imports 6445 of them. I noticed that the original xml filesize is 16MB. After importing, it gets chopped down to 10MB. What the heck is happening here?

Applications :: IPhone Music Library Restore To ITunes / HDD?

Aug 18, 2010

Just a quick question, I have a friend who recently the HDD go out in her laptop. She has all her music in her iPhone, but if I replace the HDD in her laptop for her, is there a way to transfer the music from her iPhone to her computer? I think this is a pretty common questions but I just Googled it and found some random "sketchy tutorials" with self-promotions for random tools like "tansee iPhone -> PC" and the like...

Just wondering if there's a handy/favorite program you guys out there use? Windows or Mac software is fine.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Restore A Mail Folder In Library

May 25, 2012

When I try to restore the mail folder I get a permission error. Yet in info I have read, write permission for myself. I could not restore even a file in the library "mail folder. It maybe I cannot restore any file or folder because of permission problems.  I ran disk utility and di a repair permissions. I even tried to do the I tunes folder. Same denial, do not have permission.   

I started with a problem with my mailboxes I had in a import folder in mail. They did not list alpha and other querks.  Read on a help page that you need to rebuild mailbox.  The import mailbox was grayed out and I cannot rebuild.  Also, I cannot delete or change any of the mailboxes inside the import mailbox. 

Back to the rebuild, the site said to trash the envelope index file.  I di and know I cannot read any messages stored in the folders that were in the import folder. This is where I decided maybe I could use time machine and get a copy of the old envelope index and replace it.  No dice"not sufficient permissions. What a mess cannot read saved messages unless I go to library and find them.

Intel Mac :: System Fonts Won't Work

Jun 26, 2012

I have a set of fonts that I need to use for a client's logo design.  When I switched over from my MBP to this newer iMac, not all of the fonts in the font book are working. I've  gone to several tech blogs and inquired about the issue and have gotten good advice but none seems to be the answer to my dilemma.  In the FontBook, I can see the following: 

New Peninim
Ariel Hebrew
Corsiva Hebrew

But, when I try to engage them in either Photoshop or Illustrator,  nothing but blank boxes seems to come up.

Applications :: Deleted Entire ITunes Library - System Restore

Sep 23, 2007

I accidentally deleted my entire iTunes library. What happened was that I intended to delete all the songs from just one artist but for some reason, my iTunes deleted everything in my library which I have collected over the past 6 years. It gets worse because:

1 - I can't get my files back from my iPod because it died about a year ago
2 - I agreed to move all files to my recycle bin (at that point I had no idea I was deleting my entire library) and when I went to check the bin, none of the files were there
3 - I attempted a system restore but all it did was to return my folders with no files in them
4 - I tried to use a couple of undelete files software but none of them found the deleted files.

I'm really desperate to get my files back.
