    So I'm a graphic design student. I have a Dual 867mhz powermac, 1.75gb, Tiger, yada yada...

    I have a large library of fonts, most of which are "turned off." All of my Adobe and Macromedia Programs load just fine but any Mac Office programs bring up "corrupt font" errors and ultimately, will not load the programs. I'm somewhat new to Macs and am not sure how to handle it. Is there a way to isolate a library of basic fonts to open with these microsoft programs? Or perhaps a way to bypass something??

    :( ...Please Help. I'm running out of beer and I'm desperate.

    -Matt

    thought I should add...

    I've reloaded the entire Mac Office Program twice and have tried searching through their online support site. No worky.

    Use Font Book (in /Applications) to check for corrupt fonts, resolve duplicates and turn off unwanted (sets of) fonts... :)

    Yeah I even did that too. There were a few duplicates but those were resolved.

    Very interesting read ManchesterTrix. I'll try it out tonight.

    PS. I'm only using fontbook to manage fonts.
