    Hi all,
    I'm the system admin and I was tidying up the fonts, and copied Arial somewhere and then back, deleted the other Arials in Fontbook, and everything was fine. Then I looked in my Main Library Fonts folder, and Arial is named Arial copy.ttf! I thought this would be no biggie, but then tried to click and rename and it will not let me. Am I not the Admin? Am I not Zeus, commanding it to do my bidding? :confused: :eek: I just want to rename it normal Arial... because. Because I don't want COPY in the file name! Because I want it fixed. Because I'm a bit OCD and this stuff keeps me awake at night.

    Any ideas about Maverick messing up some Admin authorities?

    Try Terminal. Finder has been getting increasingly persnickety about permissons-theatre for years now.
