    Installed the latest beta yesterday, and now Font Book has just a blank window (aside from the toolbar). Anyone else experiencing this?

    yeah looks broken. it's possible it's one of my many custom fonts that I have installed, maybe i'll trash them all and see later.

    Yeah. Font Book isn't working for me either. I installed Font Explorer Pro and I've been able to add and remove fonts on my laptop for now using that instead of Font Book. It has a 30 day free trial so hopefully this gets resolved before then...

    Why do so many people use Font Book? I mean I've used it like once before to add a font I downloaded, but I certainly wouldn't notice it not working in these betas.

    I rarely use it. It was just an odd coincidence that I needed to almost immediately after DP4 came out.

    Now it's working, but the app I needed to peek into Font Book for doesn't work on DP5 ...

    Some of us use more custom fonts and like to disable all the duplicate unicode range fonts that clog up the font lists (I don't need 10 different arabic script fonts...). Font Book is great for this...

    Some people do work in design and need a font manager ;)

    Whether they should be running beta software or not is another argument
