Strange Font Problems
Posted on 2008-11-05
I have a user who is running a Mac G5 with OSX 10.4.11. We've tried resetting the system font to correct an error in Mac Mail, and Safari, IE, and Mozilla where the default font in these applications was Alien League. Now everytime the user shuts down and restarts Mac Mail there is a different font being used. Sometimes it will remove just the first letter of a word, and sometimes a line of text will be condensed down to overlap the same area making it un-readable. The problem has spread to other applications such as Acrobat, Illustrator and InDesign where the file menus open but there is nothing contained in them, it's just empty space. Has anyone come accross this before? Could it be a virus? Could the system fonts be corrupt?
