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.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

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.

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"?

MacBook :: Installing Multiple Fonts To Support Illustrator

May 3, 2012

Just bought a used MacBook5,1 and need to load a bunch of fonts to support Illustrator, etc. Is there a way to select and drag multiple fonts over to the MacBook instead of installing them individually? Ideally, I'd like to replicate the fonts in my 24" iMac. Is this a simple copy/paste procedure?

Software :: Cannot Install Fonts On Mac OS 10.6

Jan 17, 2010

I just started work as a graphic designer and the company uses macs. I am used to using a PC platform. Anyway, the company bought a new IMac, from my understanding it is Mac 10.6 known as leopard I think? Anyway, the company saved all their fonts onto the database for me to install into my workstation. I tried installing it, and most of it did install. When I opened adobe illustrator and opened up a formor project it couldn't find a font, Century Gothic. So I tried downloading it and saving it from the other stations, but it wouldn't install. I then renamed it to century gothic.tff. Restarted my mac then it worked. Next day I tried opening a different project, and now it can not find the font Friz Quadrata.

I tried doing the same process I did for the Century Gothic font, it didn't work. I tried changing the file extension, I tried saving the whole fonts folder from the other station (as the files are .ffil and .lwfn) so I thought this might work. It didn't. I even tried downloading font finagler, that didn't work either. So I figure to ask Mac directly on how to solve this problem, as I cannot start any of the projects given to me which needs to be started ASAP. So basically I need a solution on how to transfer ALL/most of the fonts from the other mac to this new mac. There are about 600 fonts I think, or something close to that number.

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.

Software :: Fonts In 10.3.9 Don't Work On OS 10.4?

Nov 9, 2009

I created, in Mac OS 10.3.9, a series of thousands of templates I use in my business, with fonts I have gleaned from many sources over the yrs. It amounts to hundreds & hundreds of hours expended on my part to create these templates, which are invaluable to me. When I tried to transfer these fonts to 10.4.11. by using a test template on my newest iMac, I was told, in a window, they were not usuable. The written part of the templates, using fonts I have used for yrs., reverted to the default font Helvetica.

I have a current support contract W/Apple. When I called the tech people @ Mac they were unable to help my in any way. I also searched the net & found other people @ chat sites W/the same problem but no help. Then I found your site by accident when I was downloading SuperDuper. Can something like TTConverter solve my problem? Or is it only for the interface between classic or windows fonts (which none of these are but @ one time some of them were used in Classic, but later trasferred O.K. to 10.3.9. Or do U have an idea??I am going crazy W/this. I need to upgrade my older iMac. If I do it wipes out all the fonts I have used since OS 7. It would be too much work to redo them all over in fonts that 10.4 W/accept.
