    I was trying to install some fonts and fontbook crashed all the way :D
    Now every time I start it it closes immediately! I went to the Finder, Get Info on Font book and it's only a 7mb app so if anyone could send it to inpulso@gmail.com I would be grateful. Thanks in advance.

    PS - By the way, I already repaired permissions and erased all the preference files that matched "font book" in the spotlight, nothing worked so far :)

    It's 6.4MB for me. I don't think reinstalling the app will necessarily help. Have you removed the fonts that crashed Font Book? :)

    The thing is, it installed no fonts on the User/Library/Fonts, the only fonts are in system/library/fonts, and in those I'm kinda afraid to touch because it also contains system fonts and whatnot :eek: I need a font managing app, care to help? :eek:

    Is this after removing the new fonts? Also, it's always best to close all apps when modifying the fonts (adding or removing) to avoid overloading the ATSServer. :)
