    I somehow installed iLife 06 and now my fonts are messed up.Can someone please help me or help me find a way if i can restore this font by the name of "Sand"...Most Macs should come with it. I tried reinstalling my iBook Software Restore but it can't be installed for some reason. I need this font as i used it in the front cover of my assignment and a few pages and I've printed those pages out and the assignment is not complete and i need that font. Anyone knows a solution for this one?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fonts_in_Mac_OS_X#Font_List

    Sand is located in there with a preview...

    Obviously this does not help you at all but I don't have this font on my OS X 10.4.4 installation so I wonder if this really is a "standard" font. It's either that or I have missed out on this font myself...

    I don't have that font either. On further investigation of that wiki article
    it says Sand was included with 10.0 - 10.3 but it is not listed under
    10.4. Maybe the OP lost it when upgrading from Panther to Tiger?

    The bizarreness continues: I have Sand available in fontbook but I can't find where the font file is (running Panther). A finder search for "Sand" comes up with nothing.

    try font cache cleaner first - they renamed the app to Font Finagler

    If you can't find Sand when you search in Finder, i guess u can make a search Font in Finder and probally it should be there i think...

    I found it -- it was in the Mac OS 9 system folder. Apparently "find" doesn't search there.

    Wierd...what format is it?
    When i try to open it with Font Book, it doesn't seem to work. What do i need to open it with if not Font Book?

    Anyone out there with the Font file for sand? Please send it to me. Thanks in advance...

    Thank You!

    THANK YOU! You've just saved my ass at half 3 in the morning. And from all the way back in '06 as well ;)
