Font Selection Dialogue sluggish

Recommended Posts

Hi @ all!


Recently whenever I use Leopard's built-in font selection tool in iWeb, Pages, Numbers, Mail (Or any other Application that uses it) it behaves extremely sluggish. Sometimes taking as much as 30 seconds before it updates when I for example switch font collections. More often than not the host application from where the requester is called just crashes after I select a certain font.


I have not installed new fonts when the problem occured it just started behaving that way with no reason known to me. I have used Fontbook to check all my fonts and deleted those which are markes with a red cross as damaged, but nothing helped. I trashed the font cache (using ONYX) but that does not help either.


Any of you guys have any ideas what to do?

I'd try another font management app like FontExplorer X. Version 1.2.3 is free and works great. http://www.fontexplorerx.com/download/


You could also try trashing Font Book's prefs and making sure all but the system required fonts are off and see if you still have issues.
