Learn how to solve your font problems today!
Are you suffering from a mysterious font problem in Mac OS X Tiger? Help is at hand, with troubleshooting steps and real-world advice for solving problems fast. If you've experienced seemingly inexplicable trouble with characters displaying incorrectly, being unable to type a particular character, fonts missing from Font menus, confusing behavior in Microsoft and Adobe programs, Font Book crashing, or Character Palette misbehaving, turn to font expert Sharon Zardetto Aker for help.
Read this ebook to learn the answers to questions such as:
- How do I go about troubleshooting a font problem?
- Microsoft Word keeps complaining about a corrupt font. What should I do?
- People keep telling me to "just delete the caches." What are they? Where are they? Why does deleting them solve a font problem?
- Why can't I install a PostScript Type 1 font?
- Why doesn't the Input menu show up in my menu bar?
This is a companion volume to Take Control of Fonts in Mac OS X, and although that ebook is not necessary for solving your font problems, we think anyone with enough fonts to be suffering from font problems will benefit from its detailed coverage of "healthy" fonts (which is why you can save $5 when you buy both). If you choose not to purchase that ebook, keep in mind that Take Control of Font Problems in Mac OS X assumes you're familiar with things like Font Book's capabilities, including enabling and disabling fonts, resolving duplicates, and font validation. (This ebook doesn't cover problems caused by third-party font management utilities, since they change too frequently to cover even in an ebook.)
