OS X :: Browser Fonts Showing Up As Outlines?

Aug 6, 2009

I seriously thought that this was a new trend of some sort....I noticed a lot of sites lately have Helvetica showing up as outlines rather than solid letters.Today I just happened to bring it up to a friend of mine and asked him what he thought of this new trend showing up and showed him a site as an example and he said "what are you talking about" and showed me a screen shot....his looks normal....mine looks like outlined letters.

Does anyone know why this would be happening? It happens in both Safari and Firefox for me....I'm thinking it might be a font installed on my computer somehow overriding a default font but how would I look into something like this or fix it?lease help - now that I know its not some new trend to have outlined letters....I want it back to normal!Heres the same images we swapped...mines the dumb looking one.Its not EVERY font....just THAT font and only when in bold.

Applications :: Chrome Browser Fonts Don't Look So Good?

Aug 23, 2010

Does anyone else notice fonts in Google Chrome don't look as good as they do in other browsers like FF and Safari? They look cramped and unkerned. Am I the only one? It's distracting after coming from FF and preventing me from using it. Though that's not the only reason. I do like the speed of Chrome though.

Applications :: Of Outlines Are Drawn To Scale, But Illustrator Wont Open Them?

Jun 15, 2010

I draw alot of car graphic designs, the eps's of the outlines are drawn to scale, but illustrator wont open them. I think this due to car outlines being 1:1 scale. Is there anyway to open a eps where the artwork is bigger than the artboard (if the artboard is set to max, if there is a max?) in illustrator?

Dec 4, 2014

My email messages for one Google account no longer show up in my OS X Mail client.Case info:This may have occurred after I enabled the 'All Mail' to Apple Mail for the account, then removed it once I saw it was adding every single message I deleted since the beginning of time. Still, that doesn't explain the following...My email messages for another Google account does show up in my OS X Mail client. They have exactly the same IMAP settings other than username and password.My email messages for the account that doesn't work, shows up fine on my iPhone/iOS and gmail.com.None of the messages in the inbox or folders/labels show up. The count is zero. However they all show up fine in folders in iOS and on gmail.com.There is an indicator for one new message in the inbox, but none show.

OS X :: Firefox & Thunderbird Want Fonts

Jan 12, 2011

I have been having this problem for over two weeks on my iMac 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, running 10.6.6. I am running FF 3.6.12 and Thunderbird 3.1. I mention Thunderbird, because the persistent request to install fonts occurs on both apps, not just FF. Clicking "Do not ask me again," has no effect.

The odd thing is the requests in both apps want to install on the volume "NEON," which is my SuperDuper (bootable) backup drive, and should contain all the fonts that are on my boot drive.

I have tried the tricks suggested for FontBook (move all User Fonts to the Computer Fonts ?), with no change in behavior. With some difficulty, I did install the fonts being asked for on both volumes, with the result that Firefox and Thunderbird began asking to install a new set of completely different fonts, although fewer in number that when the problem began.

OS X :: Fonts Taking Over My Macbook?

Sep 27, 2010

So, like a complete idiot i downloaded a torrent file with a few thousand font files. i installed them all and it has bogged down my OS and taken over programs like Safari, firefox and entourage (which i use for email). when i change the font in the preference menu in the respective program it will change the size but not the actual font style. another strange thing is that safari will not load pictures now either.

i want to just wipe the hdd but i do not have a disc because i bought it used. i can take it back to the guy i got it from as he refurbishes macs but i was wondering if i could avoid the trip if any one has a tip or two for me.

OS X :: Duplicate Fonts After 10.5.2 Update

Mar 13, 2008

I've been having problems with Logic Pro ever since the 10.5.2 update (and other updates that appeared at the same time). Some folks on the Apple discussion forums thought that font issues may be to blame. Most, however, still have problems after resolving their font problems. I went into Font Book anyway to see if there was anything I could clean up. I've already done the "resolve duplicates" thing with fonts that had the dot by their name. This time, I selected all fonts and validated them. I ended up with 42 'minor problems'.

After going through each one to see what the problem is, they all said it was a duplicate font issue. Now, I'm not the type to go deleting fonts willie-nillie. When I went back into Font Book, each of the problem fonts did indeed have duplicates when I folded down the little triangle guy. All of the duplicates were grayed out with the word OFF next to them. Should I delete these guys that are already off and disabled? Would that actually have any benefit, or is the fact that Font Book turn them OFF the proper solution?

OS X :: SL - Scale Fonts In UI Really Large?

Oct 26, 2009

I've got a spare Mac I'm setting up in the living room as an HTPC (Plex is VERY cool, BTW). But I can't figure out how to scale everything really big so it's visible 10 feet away. I've got 128 px icons, check. 16 px is as big as the text will go. But all the menus are regular size. This was easy to do in Windows - can it be as easy in Snow Leopard?

OS X :: Can Use TTF Fonts If Copy From Windows To Mac SL

Dec 8, 2009

My Macbook Pro will be arriving tomorrow so I'm preparing everything for the "big move" from Windows to Mac OS X 10.6.

Yesterday someone told me that copying over TTF fonts might pose problems on a mac. Something about it not being 100% compatible. Seeing I'm using Photoshop (and all my downloaded fonts) daily, it is important to know if this as the case or not.

Can anyone shed some light on this? Does or doesn't it work? Can I basically just copy the files over or not?

OS X :: All Fonts Deactivated But Available In Applications

Mar 22, 2010

I'm currently running snow leopard and I use Fontagent Pro 4 to manage my fonts. For some reason, even though all of my fonts are deactivated in FA, they are all available in Microsoft Office and CS4 applications! With ~3000 fonts, you can imagine that these applications take a while to start up (especially office - CS4 apps tend to be a bit speedier). I've tried everything I can find on - cleaning font caches, etc.

MacBook :: The Fonts Are Too Small?

Jun 22, 2010

I just bought a Mac book, it's a 13". The battery life is phenomenal and the trackpad is luxurious. However I find it really difficult to see the text on my screen. In the browser this wasn't a problem as I could zoom in, but the text in the address bar, and in all other applications the font is very small. I looked into changing the DPI for my Macbook and couldn't find a solution. I'm zooming in to see things but it looks distorted and obviously horrible.

Software :: Recognizing Fonts In OS 10.5

Mar 28, 2009

I tried to add fonts from a CD in OS 10.5. The system wouldn't recognize adobe postscripts fonts from the CD as fonts. I had to go to an older mac system (10.4.11) on a G4 and send them to myself over the network. Then it recognized them. Is there a way to make the mac recognize it by adding an extension? I tried the info box and selecting fontbook as the app. This CD was created in OS 9.
