I am hoping some one can help me with this issue. I have looked around the forum and found of couple of threads with similar issues but I haven't seen anything solutions that have helped me. I am running a fresh install of OSX Snow Leopard, and have been trying to install some the of the fonts I was using before using Font Book. The fonts are being added successfully and validating and are enabled. They are not showing up in any of my apps however, whether that be Photoshop, or OpenOffice etc. It seems that all types of fonts have issues, Opentype, TTF, etc. I have tried manually adding folders to the fonts library under the user as well (this seems to be where Font Book puts fonts I add through that app). I even downloaded FontCase trial version and when i try to add fonts to library with that app, no matter what font or font type i choose i just get an error with the location of where the font was being brought in from...not very helpful at all as I have no idea what is causing this issue. Could i be experiencing some sort of User or permissions issue? I was thinking of trying to reinstall the OS...as a last resort.
