    This might sound extremely stupid, but I accidentally deleted Apple's "Font Book", and even more stupid of me, I emptied out the trash can. Does anyone know if I can retrieve it somehow...or download it again? Or will I have to bring it to the Apple store and ask an employee to fix my problem?

    Thanks.

    Get Pacifist to get (just) the Font Book.app off your Mac OS X (or restore) disk(s). :)

    From memory (I've only done it once, quite a while ago):

    Download and install Pacifist. Start it with your Mac OS X or restore disk in the disk drive. You should then be able to navigate the content of the .pkg file(s) on the CDs/DVD much like you navigate through Finder. Look for Applications generally and Font Book specially, and once found Pacifict should let you extract it.

    Basically...

    With a bit of luck someone (with a running version of Pacifist) might come by this thread and give you a better explanation...? :eek:

    Hmm...I guess I'll try it out later, if I can.

    Thanks! :]
