    Hi Guys,

    Last nite when i was cleaning up my unused fonts, I screwed up with deleting some sort of fonts that belongs to the OSX default. Is there any chance to restore the fonts to the default?

    Many Thanks....

    Three options: if you have a partition/spare drive, install the OS and copy the fonts into your folder on the active drive. Second: If you know the font, ask a friend with a comp to send it to you. Third: try to find the font online.

    Or PM me with the name of the font and I can send it to you if I have it.

    There might be, I have no idea, but it's just easier to grab them yourself. The ONLY gripe I have about OSX is that it's a pain in the ass to access individual packets (though not impossible, there are shareware apps that will access the packages on the install discs, I can't remember the name of the main one offhand, though I know it is available on sourceforge)...
