This is the issue I have [the above "text"]. I updated my OS last night, and then this morning I discovered this. Since then, I have cleaned my font caches and checked to make sure no system files were missing... to no avail. I'm at my wit's end, and I would greatly appreciate any help whatsoever! Thanks! ---------- I've also had issue with flash setting text for a while. (Long before OS X Mavericks). This was easy to ignore, but maybe it's relevant. You tell me... please!
