    I just upgraded to 10.6.3 and noticed FontExplorer X is no longer working. Anyone else having the same problem?

    I just upgraded an hour ago and it's working fine. It took longer to scan the fonts after startup, but then it was ok. Version 1.2.3(Build 833)

    Thanks. I talked to FEX support, and they suggested I deactivate and then reactivate my fonts. After doing that, no problems.

    I read a user report that 10.6.3 breaks FontAgent Pro, as well. Can't verify this myself as my main design station is still running 10.5.8 and I don't have FontAgent Pro installed on my MacBook which runs Snow Leopard.

    Fix the Type 1 font problems but break third party font managers? One step forward, two steps back...
