    Hi!

    I just received some fonts from a professor, specifically a very nice set of Helvetica Neue. I tried to install the font using Suitcase and I get a warning sign saying that the name of the new font conflicts with that of the Mac OS X System Font that is necessary for reading text. I'm wondering how to get around this...? Can I have both versions of Helvetica Neue installed, or do I have to deactivate the system font? Can I do so?

    I would really appreciate any advice!

    Thanks!

    What do you hope to gain by installing a second copy of the font?

    fonts

    This is a much more robust version of Helevetica Neue, with more styles, like Roman, different weights, etc. The system font only has four styles! So limiting!
