    Hello :)

    Is it possible to change iPhoto's default font? I am running Lion and using iLife 2011. As you can see in the picture below, Turkish and Japanese characters appear bolder, which is super annoying :mad: This wasn't the case in the previous version of iPhoto. The other iLife applications don't have this problem as far as I am concerned. I think the default font that iPhoto is currently using (because the font was different in the previous version) is causing this. Is there a way to change it?

    More likely you have some font corruption. Open Font Book in your Applications folder and look for duplicates (Edit -> Look for Enabled Duplicates) and validate your fonts (Select All, then File -> Validate Fonts). See if that comes up with any problems.

    Thanks for the tip Mal. But I already did that a while ago. I opened Font Book again and did as you told and there were no duplicates or warning signs next to any font.

    Any other suggestions?

    Ok so I reinstalled Lion and iLife 2011 from scratch. I checked the Fontbook again everything seems to be fine there. Aaaaaand.... Turkish and Japanese characters still appear bolder :( But I discovered that when I select "Large" for Source Text under iPhoto>Preferences, all characters have the same weight. I would prefer the text smaller but I guess it's better than some characters appearing bolder than the others. Oh well...
