Apr 29, 2012

Font Book is not disabling selected fonts. They continue to be loaded into any open application, causing slow performance. Besides removing the fonts entirely from Font Book, is there any workaround? I'm using OS 10.6.8.

OS X :: Disable Auto Mounting Of Selected Volumes?

Aug 30, 2009

I have a number of volumes on my computer and assorted drives, some of which I use very rarely, and I'd like to keep these from being mounted automatically, just to reduce the clutter in my sidebar.

Years ago there was a method of disabling the auto-mount feature of certain volumes, but I haven't the vaguest idea of how to do it now -- if in fact it can be done.

I've ordered Snow Leopard, but am still using 10.5.8 on a Mac Pro.

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 :: Getting Appleworks Fonts To Pages?

Mar 21, 2012

I finally have broken down and gotten Pages to replace all my AppleWorks documents, of which there are many. There are a number of fonts in Appleworks that are different in Pages or not there.  Is there a quick way to get them into Pages. I seem to forget how to do this as I'm getting old now.

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 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?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Disable A Mail.app Account?

May 14, 2012

In Apple's OSX Mail app, I've got a mailbox that connects to an  server that is no longer valid. That is, the address no longer works.  I'd like to have Mail stop checking that address. But I'd like to keep everything as is otherwise, if possible. In Mail preferences, I tried unchecking "include when automatically checking mail" -- but the account still gets checked when I hit "Get Mail" manually. I tried unchecking the box for "enable this account", too, but when I do that, all messages in that mailbox seem to disappear. Are they saved anywhere? I don't want to lose them and I still want to be able to search them.

MacBook :: Disable The Display In Snow Leopard (no Clamshell)

Feb 27, 2012

I have an original MacBook (1,1) that I use without the lid (the display was destroyed, and replacement was too dear, so I took the top off altogether). It's actually a pretty handy desktop. One problem is that sometimes windows go astray because the "Displays" setting is set for two screens (mirroring does'nt work because it reduces the resolution to 800x600). I am wondering if there is anyway to trick the macbook into thinking the lid is closed, and/or disabling the internal display altogether (basically so that only the external monitor is recognized).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable The Auto-eject Of A Failing HD

Mar 31, 2012

My kids HD just started to fail.  Apple replaced it this AM, however my kid's TM backup is about 5 months old.  I am trying to recover the data from the old disk. 

She put the old disk into an enclosure and connected it to her MBP.  As I try to copy as much of the drive as possible it gets an error, ejects, then reconnects and give an annoying message that I didn’t eject properly.  This is making it very difficult to get all the data off. 

I figured if I mounted read-only that it’d stop doing that, but it does not.  I’ve run fsck, etc… 

All I need is for this stupid machine to log errors and move on just like single user mode.  However, I cannot use single user mode because I am 2000 miles away from the machine.  And using Facetime to remote control my kid has pushed me to the edge.  There has to be a way to make OSX as “unfriendly” as Linux. OSX needs a “pro” mode. 

So, I ask again.  How do I stop OSX from auto ejecting a disk when it errors?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Way To Disable Autodiscover For Exchange In Mail?

May 8, 2012

I am trying to access my exchange server for work. The autodiscover sets the exchange server to the wrong site (whether this is a Mail issue or a server issue, I'm not sure...); I am trying to disable autodiscover so that I can manually set the exchange server in a permanent way. Is this possible? When I contacted IT at work, this was their response: "Mac users are pointed to a different server address due to incompatibilities with the Mac applications that handle mail (Entourage, Macmail). The issue is that an auto-discover feature within the application causes the software to connect to the incorrect address automatically, therefore you must change it each time. Unfortunately Macmail and Entourage cannot disable this function and we recommend using Outlook 2011 for Mac. There is a script file available to disable autodiscovery in Outlook 2011 and it will retain the proper mail server settings."

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Disable Cursor Hover Feature?

Was wondering if there is some way to disable the auto-open cursor hover feature? (Not sure what else to call it). It's driving me nuts.It's most disfunctional with Safari--for example when I'm trying to find a specific webpage in the Histor-- if I don't keep moving the cursor constantly, whatever URL the cursor happens to be over will just open and load.Then I have to start over again. This seems to happen sometimes on the desktop as well.
