OS X :: System Messed Up Fonts

Sep 27, 2009

I installed a load of new fonts, but unfortunately a lot of them were corrupt, so I had loads of crashes and hangs.I used Font Book to validate all my fonts, but when I clicked the remove button FB always crashed (due to a corrupt font, no doubt...).I tried FontDoctor, which claimed to have sorted out all my problems, but although things had improved FB still reported over 2,000 minor errors.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Reinstall System Fonts

Apr 19, 2012

Trouble with fonts from the "Get Go". Now fonts are disappearing in my Adobe CS5 font lists while I'm working. Noticed in my System Fonts folder some fonts I had not noticed before. Is there any way to reinstall my system fonts without reinstalling the entire system. Also all the fonts  in my system folder seem to be Windows True Type fonts. Is this correct?

OS X :: Missing Fonts In Snow Leopard - How To Fix It

Aug 30, 2009

I have run into after installing Snow Leopard on my machine. It is really the first complaint I have since I put the OS in on the 28th and I am just having time to sit down and toy around with it and I discovered this issue.

When I was playing around in a few Adobe applications, specifically Flash, it warned me when opening a project that I was missing a few fonts form the project and that they would be substituted.

Going into my font Library I looked for the fonts that it said were missing and confirmed that they STILL EXISTED in the folder. After double checking, I realized that a lot of my fonts were missing from the application.

After opening Word 2008, I noticed that a lot of my fonts missing from Word as well. I shut down Word and tried rebuilding the Font Cache by dragging the Word font cache file out to the desktop but Word did not rebuild it's font menu with the missing fonts.

Here's where it gets interesting. When opening an Apple application like Mail, all of my fonts that are present in the font folder show up. This is INCLUDING all of the fonts that are missing in Adobe and Word. Opening a program like Adium also shows that all of the fonts are there.

Applications :: Microsoft Fonts On Snow Leopard?

Jan 12, 2010

I did a search and I found soem sort of compatibility pack by Microsoft for Office 2004 that includes fonts like Calibri. My problem is I don't use Office, I use NeoOffice. I tried taking the Calibri font from my Windows 7 machine and dumping it into the fonts directory on the Macbook, but it doesn't look right Is there a special font pack I should download? Here is what it looks like - Calibri on the left, Arial on the right. I could use Arial, but in my next class I'm going to do alot of group work, and if I work on a file in Calibiri, and send it to everyone else in Arial they might get annoyed. Or if the formatting is changed due to changing a font I'll look like a dope ruining everything with his Mac.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Fonts Not Available In Applications Although Installed?

Jun 23, 2012

There are a few fonts (OTF/TTF/PSF...) I have installed with Font Explorer X, what won't show up in ANY application.Even Text Edit won't display them.However this isn't a problem linked to Font Explorer because before this I had Suitcafe Fusion 3 and had the same problem.What makes it strange is that there are a few fonts of some families that DO show up although they are JUST THE SAME as the fonts that won't show up and are from the SAME family.

I cleaned my cache numerous times with applications like Font Finagler and checked everywhere for font corruptions or duplicates with applications like Font Doctor but nothing seemed wrong or corrupted.If I go and check the fonts in System Profiler it clearly says they are valid and enambled. 

Now what makes it even more unexplainable is that when I install the fonts trough Font Book and shut down the font manager, they DO show up...Howevery I'm not really happy abouth that because Font Book is a crappy font manager and I paid money for a good one...

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: After Upgrading To 10.6.8, Apps Can't Find Fonts

May 13, 2012

I recently upgraded to OX 10.6.8 (MacBook Pro). Now Quark Xpress and Microsoft Word can't find the fonts. They both see the same list of fonts. The fonts are all windows true type fonts (.ttf). The list of fonts available does not include all the .ttf fonts in the library. There is no font folder anywhere that has only the fonts that these two apps see in it. The apple apps I tested see all the fonts in the library.  How do I make the fonts available to the non-apple applications?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: User Fonts Missing From Book But Still In Folder?

May 8, 2012

My user fonts suddenly don't show up in font book. I've tried all the standard fixes.- restarted in SAFE mode. - cleared the font cache- verified the disc- repaired permissions- reinstalled both font book and the user font folder from an older version in Time Machine- Verified all the fonts.

I haven't tried tossing them in another user account yet because I find the idea of having to reset up the entire user account alarming. Is there anything else I can try? These fonts all worked just days ago.   

If I click on the fonts in the user folder they come up 'installed' and reappear. But as soon as I close and reopen fontbook they disappear again. Here's the general console readout (the short version, there is a lot more of the same.)   5/8/12 9:58:58 PM-Mac-JuniorFont Book[591]Warning##### ERROR:  Could not get CTFontRef for file:///Users/terri2/Library/Fonts/Edward.ttf#postscript-name=Besafe; resyncing Font Book and XType 5/8/12 9:58:58 PM-Mac-JuniorFont Book[591]Warning##### ERROR:  file:///Users/terri2/Library/Fonts/Edward.ttf#postscript-name=Besafe has no family name 5/8/12 9:58:58 PM-Mac-JuniorFont Book[591]Warning##### ERROR:  Could not get CTFontRef for file:///Users/terri2/Library/Fonts/Jagged%20dreams.ttf#postscript-name=JaggedDr eams; resyncing Font Book and XType

OS X :: Text Fonts Garbled In Safari And Address Book Snow Leopard?

Sep 26, 2009

System: clean install of 10.6

[B]Issues:[/B ]Safari has garbled menus/text and so does [URL]
Also the groups on the right in address book are garbled (the text looks out of place/corrupt ). The contacts look fine, it's just a couple group names, not all.

What i've tried: There are no duplicates in my font book. I repaired permissions. I've tried the demo of fontdoctor 7.6 but it says no errors, everything passed.

I'm completely stuck - anyone else have this problem?

PowerPC :: Strange Ibook Display - Disassembling / Reassembling Things?

Jul 6, 2008

also posted on apple discussion forums. My wife has a 12" ibook g4 1.33 mhz. It has been exhibiting the following symptoms with increasing frequency:

1) the display will completely dim to the lowest setting or cycle between bright and dim, as if pressing f1 and/or f2 repeatedly
2) some of whatever she was typing or working on at the time will be deleted
3) a string of repeated characters (usually q1aq1aq1a) will appear in her typing
4) often the desktop is brought to the front as if pressing f11 in expose
5) other than the problems described, the computer continues to work normally
6) problems are almost always related to moving the hinge position, but sometimes happen randomly, with no movement at all
7) it will sometimes occur many times a day, then not at all for several days
8) it seems to happen more often when the computer is not on a hard surface, but this may just be my imagination or some random bad luck

I am at a loss as to what the problem may be. I was thinking it might be the display cable because of the link to hinge position, but that wouldn't account for the random typing. Then I thought it was the motherboard, but the computer seems to work ok other than this. I did realize the other day that most of the problems are things on the left hand edge of the keyboard (display brightness, the q1a pattern), but this doesn't account for the deleted typing and the mysterious f11 thing. Does anybody have any thoughts? Am I looking at a display cable (hopefully this is it - I have no problems with disassembling/reassembling things)? Or is it the motherboard (probably means it would be more economical to get a new machine)? Or is it something else?

OS9/OS8/System 7 :: Collection Of Fonts Crashes System When Opened In Finder?

May 21, 2012

I have an extensive collection of fonts (60,0000+). Several hundred of them will crash my system when I open one of them in Finder (double-click the suitcase). I picked one at random for some serious examination. I looked at my sample with many font tools. My latest tool was FontDoctor (v5 and v7). FontDoctor reported "no problems found" with my font. Yet the crash persists.Any tool that can do a thorough job of investigating and repairing my corrupt fonts.

OS X :: How To Get Fonts To Display In TextEdit And Other Apps

Apr 30, 2009

When I select a font in TextEdit, it doesn't show what the font looks like; they all appear with the same, generic font. It does this in a few other apps too. In the Mac version of MS Office this doesn't happen. Is there a simple way to fix this as I'm appalling at remembering what a font looks like with just the name of it in front of me!

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
Raanana
Israel 

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

OS X :: Display / Graphics - Tiny Icons - Large Fonts

Jan 5, 2009

The display on the Mac computer at my work has been changed so that all the icons are very tiny, the fonts are very large, and when I move the mouse, the entire screen moves so that most of the time a part of the screen is hidden and I have to jiggle the mouse around to read everything - I'm not scrolling, it just automatically does it without me clicking. I am not really familiar with Macs but I do know how to get to system preferences, and I can't think what option might make the screen do that. It really makes the computer harder to use - does anyone know what it is? I also didn't see where I could make the icons bigger or smaller, it doesn't seem like the Desktop/Display really does it.

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
