    PM me your email address and I'll give it a go. Have you tried reinstalling the combo update? I'm not sure if that carries Font Book or not. :)

    when you delete font book, does that effect (or delete) all the fonts in all your apps?

    It shouldn't. Font Book is just the GUI for managing these fonts. nevertheless, I wouldn't delete it all the same.

    dead phish head, I sent you the PPC version from Tiger. I hope that's the correct version for you. :)

    aoliver, do you have an Intel or PPC Mac?

    And did you try reinstalling the latest combo update (intel/PPC)?

    Another DumbDumb is here :p

    Hi guys,

    I'm a newbie here so, nice to know u all and Happy New Year :p
    I'm here for the same reason as the ones before, who for some reason deleted our font book. I would really appreciate the help for somebody to sent me a font book. I'm running on Mac OS 10.5.6 (Leopard). The reason I lost it because I replaced it with another version that did not worked on my Mac OS without backing up the one before... :p

    Thanks in advance :)

    help font book gone

    I'm hoping someone here can help me. I deleted the font book when I was cleaning out fonts a while back. I'm assuming that's why I can't add the fonts to my adobe ps3. I still have my font's just not in the font book.
    Is there a way to get the font book back?

    thanks

    It is always good to state the Mac OS X version you use, as there are quite a lot of them out there and Font Book for Mac OS X 10.4 is not the same as it is for Mac OS X 10.6.
    Here is Font Book 2.2.2 from Mac OS X 10.6.8.
