    Trashed the wrong system font. Anyone know what font is used when viewing the keyboard viewer?

    I hate how all the Arabic, Chinese, etc., show in layout programs. But I trashed the wrong one this time. Just white blocks now.

    Guess I’ll have to reinstall HS and get all the trash fonts back.

    Take a look here. http://www.jklstudios.com/misc/osxfonts.html#requiredfonts
    Figuring out which of the fonts you can "safely" delete is not so simple, but this should get you started on what fonts you need, some you would not suspect are required for menus etc.

    Yep, saw it. I think Apple designer's used their native language and fonts to design the Apple System, so we are stuck with needing their font in our English language system. Meaning, I am stuck scrolling through all these weird fonts to find an appropriate English font for a design.
