heres the problem-when we use our plug-in setting save function our fonts change and come back looking like this Fi.. Ed.. Set... etc. It happened on both computers. The only thing old in the new computer is our protools cards and our 2 barracudas 4.5gb.Our barracudas were on the external scsi on our old computer and now we are running them on the internal bus with a viking II as our system drive.The fact that it happened on both computers has really got us woundering if it staring us right in the face. But at this point i just don't know.Also we were running the fonts on chicago style and the monitor was on thousands of colors. we tried them on 256 and same thing happened
Please reply????
We have just upgraded to a new computer(g3/300 biege tower).we were using 7300/180 and we had the same problem plus a bunch of others too. Then we upgraded to a new computer with 4.3.1 and 8.5 OS

I was having a font basedcrash with system 8.6 due to a bug in the system which corrupts the font files in the fond (Spelt Fond) data fork of the font file or sometnig like that. In my font fault all text vanished from the machine, including folder names and pulldown menus.
The fix was to go back to 8.5 and remove all the fontsand re install no corrupted files. Although you are supposed to be able to get a program that will fix the corruption. I didn't bother cos you have to locate which font is corrupt by pulling them out and trying to make it crash till you identify it.

That's exactly the sort of thing I like to stay late at work doing, not

You need to get "Font Manager Update 1.0.smi" from Apple's site. It's said to fix font corruptions. Also, if you are running Mac OS 8.5 and higher, make sure that "font smoothing" is disabled in the Appearance control panel. These should help.

Working with a B/W G3 8.6 & PT 4.3.2 ,I couldn't let LOGIC 4.0.2 start with DAE .
Direct I/O was no problem & PT worked fine also . Contacts with Emagic didn't solve anything .
Aaaah..... FONT MANAGER UPDATE 1.0 solved the whole thing !
Also thanks to Norton Disk Doctor..
Anyone working with TOAST, there's also a 3.5.7 updater ,quiet usefull !
