    So, today I was doing a graphic design gig for this kid at my school, for his rap group. Bad news is that the font he wanted was non-accessible. I checked my fonts folder, and all my fonts are still accounted for, but they're just not working. I checked Font Book and it says that my user fonts are disabled. When I try to enable them, nothing happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS: BTW, I tried repairing permission.

    Okay, I figured it out. First I moved the fonts folder located in /Users/username/Library to the desktop, logged out, and then logged back in. A new Font folder was created in the user library folder, so I copied the fonts from the old Fonts folder into the new one. I don't how or why it worked, but it did.
