OS X :: Font Options In Safari After Installing Some Downloaded Fonts?

Feb 23, 2009

The other night I pulled some fonts that I downloaded a few years ago off of my external hard drive and installed them one by one into Font Book to the User profile. Right after I finished this, I noticed that now about 80% of the text on pages in Safari now appeared as the Yahoo font, instead of what they used to be (I visit about 10 different sites on a regular basis, so there's probably a variety of fonts that normally appear, but now most things appear as the Yahoo font). I don't have any style sheet selected in the Safari preferences, and the font preferences are untouched from what they are when Safari is installed. Not only are a lot of sites now hard to read because of the mess that the Yahoo font around size 10 is, but its just flat out annoying to read that crazy font.

OS X :: Font Options With 10.6.2 - Duplicate Fonts?

Nov 10, 2009

I noticed on both my machines after installing 10.6.2 I had a bunch of duplicate fonts (looks like most were duplicates of Microsoft Office 2008 versions).Anyway, just letting people know. I was having weird font issues in Firefox and had to basically clear my font cache, resolve duplicates and reboot to get the fonts working correctly again.I know for a fact these fonts weren't duplicated prior to 10.6.2.

OS X :: Font In Firefox & Safari - Rogue Font Has Hijacked My Web Fonts?

Aug 1, 2009

I just got some internet going again after having moved. I've had my new Octopus for a few weeks tho. So much to my surprise, I open up my gmail account and it's practically unintelligible. Some weird cartoon like font is my default font. As far as I can tell, all the default fonts are activated and all the settings point to the activated fonts, but this is driving me absolutely F__KING bonkers. Has anyone ever had this problem? Now to be fair, I did install some fonts from a semi questionable font disk a week or two ago, so maybe some rogue font has hijacked my web fonts.

MacBook Pro :: Downloaded Around 1000 New Fonts & Installed Them - But Cannot Works Fine In Safari & Chrome

Sep 20, 2010

Yesterday, I downloaded around 1000 new fonts and installed them, all fine yesterday, but today, Safari, Firefox and Chrome are all using really whacky fonts from those that I downloaded. It happens in google and some webpages, but it's really annoying. I've been through all the preferences, defaults, fontbook (and deleted all the ones with major errors) and I deleted the font that it was using, until it chose another one, trying to fix it but with no luck

OS X Mavericks :: Why Does Font Book Keep Disabling Fonts

Jun 25, 2014

I've recently installed Mavericks (10.9.3) and noticed I have the same persistent issue I had in Mountain Lion (10.8.4), and if I remember correctly in Snow Leopard as well. Font book keeps disabling some fonts (mostly .ttf fonts though there are exceptions). I always reenable them, but after a reboot they keep getting disabled. I read somewhere that the font book preferences are easily corrupted but my install is just a few days old? Even so, I have place the plist pref file on my desktop, but to no avail. I have removed duplicate fonts, and Suitcase. I have cleared my font cache, after which some of the "problem fonts" disappeared altogether and some fonts were enabled as they should be. After closing and reopening Font Book all fonts were present but were - again - disabled. They're not some fonts I found on a dodgy site, but Google fonts, as well as some "respectable fonts" such as Futura. And it's not just the entire font family, but a couple of weights.

OS X :: Font Aliasing On New NEC Display / Fonts Not Falling On Pixels?

Oct 26, 2007

just purchased an NEC Spectraview LCD2690WUxi2 display (1920x1600 26" LCD SIPS panel), and fonts are aliasing strangely, almost as if they are not falling "on the pixel" in the OS. It's not a "big" problem but is clearly noticeable in my transition from my 23" cinema display. This is particularly evident with small fonts or italics. I'm really hoping that there are settings either in OSX or on the display that can fix this issue. Images look absolutely fantastic BTW�tack sharp, no banding, phenomenal color. In that respect this blows my old 23" Apple display completely out of the water. So it's likely something in the OS, no

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Permanently Enable Fonts In Font Book

Jun 27, 2012

Until recently, all the fonts I have installed have been permanently enabled then a few days ago, I opened Pages and was informed that some of the fonts I regularly use in most of my documents, Optima Bold, Optima Italic, Optma Bold Italic, were not active - Optima Regular was. 

I went into Font Book and found that there were many fonts which were no longer enabled. I enabled them all and carried on with my work. 

But now, I have discovered that every time I reboot, these fonts are disabled again. Surely there must be a way to permanently enable fonts.

OS X :: Irritating Copy Protected Fonts - Can I Screen Them Out Of Font Toolbar

Jul 26, 2009

Some free fonts that i have downloaded refuse to be saved as PDF's due to copy protection issues. When downloading new fonts I now look for info on this, but I have downloaded many before and some are annoyingly PDF resistant ! Can I disable all fonts that are copy protected in one go so they won't appear in the Font Toolbar? or alternatively, can I disable the copy protection segment of font? Fonts are for personal use but would like to print them off.

OS X Mavericks :: (10.9.4) Can Font Book Load Fonts From Custom Folder?

Aug 29, 2014

I would like to ask is it possible to load fonts into the Font Book of a MacBook Pro from a custom folder location, not from the default one? 

Why I need this is because I work as a Web Designer and I would like to share all fonts I use with my design team, and when I add a new font or some of them adds it to be available for all of us. Right now what I do is we have a shared folder on Google Drive and every friday we update it by Copy & Pasting our fonts into that folder and then after all of us has done this we go in and Copy & Paste back all of the content, that way we keep our fonts synced. 

What I was thinking is that if we can load the fonts directly from the shared folder would work really well to keep it in sync...

OS X Mavericks :: Font Book Disables Fonts Every Time When Restart Computer

Jun 25, 2014

First, some info on my computer:

- OS X 10.9.3

- Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 version 7.5

- Office 2011 14.4.3

- Suitcase Fusion 5 16.2.0 

As a graphic designer, I've accumulated thousands of fonts. In an attempt to clean this up, I recently purchased Suitcase Fusion 5. I transferred the fonts by going into Font Book and selecting "Restore Standard Fonts." I then took the Macintosh HD; Library; "Fonts (Removed)" folder and added those to Suitcase Fusion 5.  

Then I went back, and added about five of the removed fonts back into Macintosh HD; Library; Fonts — just because they are fonts I use frequently — as well as the Microsoft folder of fonts. 

Now, for some reason, every time I start my computer (I shut down every night before leaving my office) about half of the Microsoft fonts are disabled by font book. The next day I enable them and everything works well and they all show up in both my Adobe and Office programs, but I'd really rather not play that game every morning. Again, almost all of the fonts being disabled are in the Macintosh HD; Library; Fonts; Microsoft folder, but only until the Ms or so, after which point they all show up as enabled and work just fine. And then there are a couple of outliers I've marked with an asterisk, that are just in the typical Macintosh HD; Library; Fonts folder that are also being disabled, the most confusing one being ThirstyRoughTextures.ttf, because the rest of the Thirsty Rough family is working just fine. (This single Thirsty Rough file is the only of the five-or-so fonts that I added back into my library after restoring it to standard fonts that is acting up. The others show up in all programs just fine.) 

Fonts being disabled:

Adabi MT Condensed Extra Bold

Adabi MT Condensed Light

*Arial.ttf (in Fonts folder)

Arial.ttf (in Microsoft folder)

Baskerville Old Face

Software :: Fonts I Added Replaced The Default Thai Font For MS Office / Yahoo Email?

May 9, 2009

A few months ago I installed some Thai fonts on my mac book. I downloaded them from this site, and dragged them into Font Book. Unfortunately, one of the fonts I added replaced the default Thai font (used to be Ayuthaya) for MS Office and the Yahoo email compose letter field. Furthermore, Ayuthaya no longer appears on the drop down for MS Office, even though it's in Font Book.

1) How do I change the fonts back to how they were?
2) How do I add fonts without having this problem?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Any Way To View Repertoire For Fonts Without Installing Them?

Jul 3, 2012

I want to be able to compare the full repertoire (all the characters) in fonts without installing them in my system. As far as I can tell there is no way to do this in font book. The reason I want to do this is that I am trying to compare different versions of the same font with different character support (e.g. Latin 1 vs WGL). At the moment I keep having to delete and then reinstall the font, which isn't great.

Software :: Apple Applications Freeze After Installing Fonts?

Feb 9, 2009

I am running 10.3.9 on a PowerBook G4. I installed a bunch of fonts (through Font Book) about 2 years ago, and since that time some of my apple apps freeze from time to time. Namely, Calculator, Text Edit and Safari. I also noticed that in this state, the AutoUpdates don't download. I found a solution of overwriting the required system fonts (especially Keyboard and LastResort), then rebooting. Normally, this sets it right.

However, now my Installer is freezing (trying to install a new Adobe product), as well as Disk Utility. (This means I can't fix those permissions or do First aid, since the Disk Utility freezes). I have not tried reinstalling OS X yet. Might this be related to "Helvetica Neue"?

OS X :: Installing Font Onto Mac (from 1001freefonts)?

Apr 29, 2009

I went to 1001freefonts and clicked on the Mac download button, and in the 'Downloads' folder (through the Finder) I could see the font, but with the extension .sit. Hmmm. Not sure what that is. I persevered and found where fonts are housed on a Mac (Finder-Library-Fonts) and dragged the font file to the Font folder (as per the instructions here - [URL] but didn't know what he was talking about with the whole suitcase thing.

But nothing happened. I can see the file under the Font folder, but I cannot access the font in PhotoShop or Word. I am assuming I've missed a step (I keep reading about 'unpacking' but I have no clue what that is), but I don't know what that step would be. Do you?

OS X :: Installing Multiple Versions Of A Font?

Jun 24, 2009

I just received some fonts from a professor, specifically a very nice set of Helvetica Neue. I tried to install the font using Suitcase and I get a warning sign saying that the name of the new font conflicts with that of the Mac OS X System Font that is necessary for reading text. I'm wondering how to get around this...? Can I have both versions of Helvetica Neue installed, or do I have to deactivate the system font?
