Troubleshooting

I hope the above guide was thorough enough, but you may still run into problems. Just in case, here are possible solutions to some of the most common issues.

Fonts don’t show in program.

  • Make sure you installed a supported font format.
  • Exit all programs before installing new fonts.
  • Restart programs after installing new fonts.
  • If restarting the program fails, reboot operating system.
  • Were the fonts installed into the correct folders?

Issues with displaying or printing text.

  • Mac: To properly view and print PostScritp type 1 fonts, ATM is required.
  • PostScript type 1 fonts consist of two files: PFB (printer font binary) and PFM (printer font metrics). Both need to be installed in order for these fonts to display correctly both on screen and in print.

Fonts not available to applications running in Classic mode (Mac).

  • Install fonts in Macintosh TrueType or Macintosh PostScript into the fonts folder inside classic system folder.

Font only available to user who installed it (Mac, Linux).

  • Mac: Make sure fonts were installed into the system library font folder, instead of /Users/username/Library/Fonts.
  • Linux: Make sure fonts were installed into system folder. See instructions for details, eventually repeat the process.
