When I open pages it always uses helvetica as the default font.Can i set it to a different one like times new roman as a default.I mean you can tell it to start up by default to a specific page style, why not a specific font also?
I was given a disk full of fonts today, which I installed using fontbook...As I'm visiting various sites, I notice some fonts looking strange...well I soon realize flash text is now showing up in this crazy font as shown in the screen shot from youtube. This happens with all flash content, not just videos.I'm assuming some default font was overwritten? Does anyone know which one? Any ideas on how to restore the old font?
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.
Questions 1) How do I change the fonts back to how they were? 2) How do I add fonts without having this problem?
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.
In Mac OS, it seems that Helvetica is a common-default font (Mail, etc.) and I really like the look of it, etc., but I am wondering if my Windows-using-peers will be able to see the same font when I send over Word/Excel documents in that font? Or will it convert to some other font for them?
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.
I'm having more problems with my new MAC than I ever did with any PC! I loaded new fonts onto my MAC today and now when I go into Safari and browse the internet, all of the fonts on any website I go into have been changed into some ridiculous font! Why would this happen and how do I restore the default font settings?
A friend passed on a G4 laptop with a very weird problem. My own mac will never be updated beyound 10.3, the version on this laptop looks like 10.4.
All system fonts have changed. Some windows are still okay, like About this Macintosh. As for the rest all are the same capital A with a square around it. I know OSX won't let a user change the system font like Classic did. I read Tinkertool most likely won't do the job. I verified and repaired the permissions. Tomorrow I'll try MacJanitor and Onyx. I'm not comfortable with the Terminal. I do not yet know if another user on this laptop, which isn't created yet, might have the same problem.
Any idea how to solve this? Ever heard of a similar problem?
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.
I just noticed that the fonts of some of the italicized words in a few pdf documents have been changed. This just happened suddenly for no reason. Does that mean my Mac has been hacked or Apple has changed something on the previewer (version 4.1, 469.2.2) which came with Leopard? I also noticed that the wireless network connection has been very slow for the past two days.
I am having trouble with fonts in safari, in the advanced menu --> special needs --> never use fonts smaller than. I cant change this font, its locked to zero. What can I do? I got the latest version of safari. I've tried downloading safari again but can only download version 4, and that version cant be installed it because there is a later version installed.
on my mac I have noticed on the menu bar the drop down menus font has changed when you hover of an option. But it is only on the Finder or right clicking on the desktop or right clicking on an app icon.
the font on google has changed by itself? i thought it mightve been the preferences but theyre the standard ones times and courier.. so i downloaded firefox and its also happening on google on that too... but when i was downloading firefox i noticed it changed the font on the mozilla site too.
If I download fonts from the internet from sites like it doesn't install them. I was able to do it originally when I first bought this mac book 2 yrs. ago, but recently when I download them and try to install, they never show up in font book.
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.
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 BTWï¿½tack 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
Two questions on fonts:1. The list of fonts on the drop-down menu in MS Word 2004 for Mac shows 3 fonts which are not in Font Book:Helvetica CELucinda Grande CYMonaco CE.I do not use them, so how can I remove them from the Word menu?2. These three fonts ARE in the Font Book, but even if I disable them, they still show up on the drop down menu:Courier CEGeneva CETimes CEI have removed all but five fonts from OFFICE/Fonts. They are: Arial, Monotype Sorts, Rockwell, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS) Is there another location for Word fonts?
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.Â
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.Â
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.Â

I added a new font to my Font Book but cannot find it on Word. I installed it, enabled it, and added it to the collections that show up on word but it still isn't showing up there. How do I use new fonts in word?
All of a sudden I restarted my computer and the dock didn't show up and the fonts for the clock and battery were different. The widgets also would not show up. Also missing was some of the icons for random programs (applications, illustrator, pictures etc.) I am thinking I might have deleted some of the systems files? In safe mode the dock and widgets work and the fonts are correct however the icons are still missing.
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.
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?Â
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.Â
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...
