Upgraded to Snow Leopard and CS6...Why So Many Unsupported Fonts?
February 12, 2013 10:23 AM Subscribe
After switching to a different (and recently upgraded) Mac at work, FontDoctor is finding bushels of "Unsupported Fonts." We're talking big name fonts, too: some of my NeutraText weights, a bunch of Futura and Helveticas, Times CY, and many others. When I try to add the unsupported fonts to a set in Suitcase, the problem pops up as "Missing Printer File."
Is there a reason that upgrading from 10.5 to Snow Leopard would have rendered so many fonts unusable? Did I transfer over the wrong font files or something? How the heck are the fonts working on one Mac, but not the other?

Other variables: I do have both Fontbook and Suitcase Fusion 4 installed, but although people have reported issues from having two different font management software, it doesn't seem like that's what's happening here. I also cleared the font cache, and ran a permissions verify, and restarted. All that good stuff.
