    Hi

    I have a G4 operating in OS 10.3.

    I am able to operate Pagemaker 6.5 in Classic but am limited to about 6 fonts. I can see the other 100 but they will not work and appear bitmapped on screen and in print.

    Has anybody experienced this problem? Can you help.

    Move your fonts to the Fonts folder of your MacOS 9 System Folder.

    Were you using any kind font management in OS9, like Suitcase or ATM? If you put the fonts in the system folder in the "Font" folder (In the Classic System) they will appear after rebooting. I have successfuly used Suitcase in Classic and OSX and have no prblems seeing all my fonts. Make sure you have both the Screen font suitcase and the printer font (IF using Postscript type 1 fonts) in the same folder or they won't appear correctly or print. If they are True Type fonts, just make sure they are in the folder and reboot the machine, sometimes just rebooting Classic will not work.
