    Apparently this process is different on Mavericks that previous versions of OS X whereby you had to replace 'LucidaGrande.ttc' in 'ProtectedFonts' as well as in 'System/Fonts' for it to work.

    Mavericks no longer has 'ProtectedFonts' and now the .ttc collection in Mavericks has four fonts instead of two.

    Anyone know what is safe to change? :confused:

    Bump. This irritating. I updated today and I have been looking for the folder. The interesting thing is, I decided to delete my LucidaGrande in /System/Library/Fonts/ and relaunched the Finder. Some of my fonts (dialogue boxes, clock and desktop font) reverted to the Helvetica Neue from the 10.8 it upgraded from.

    Still Looking. Any ideas?
