    Hi,

    I've got an issue with loading any of the Office 2008 suite.

    When i go to loading, i get the Word popup loading screen and then it just stalls on that and never loads. Same for all the other apps.

    I've uninstalled deleted the prefs which worked, but now it's back again.

    Can anyone help please?
    Thanks
    Darren

    have you got the latest office updates installed? Also, which OS are you running?

    You might try disabling WYSIWYG font menus in Preferences. You may also have corrupt fonts.

    It's most probably this. Check your Fontbook, search for duplicated fonts and warnings.

    Just to confirm...... Cleared the fonts from Suitcase Fusion and reloaded them and that fixes the problem.

    Thanks guys for your help, much appreciated!
