    Hi all,
    I've been searching for a few hours online and to no avail to an odd problem I'm having.

    Basically, my Dashboard widgets have become impossible to read. The text now looks like a crappy GIF image of just the outline of the letter.

    I suppose I deleted an image or something dumb. I tried looking for the Dashboard plist to restore default settings but couldn't find it. I then reset dashboard settings with Terminal:
    defaults delete com.apple.Dashboard
    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thank you!

    I had such problem long time ago but I'm not sure if it works the same this time in your case.

    Simply go to FontBook and inactivate all the Fraction fonts in the Helvetica family. That worked for me in my older OS before. Hope this helps.

    o... maybe the Outline fonts of Helvetica, too!

    As I remember, I disable all other fraction and outline fonts.
