    Text is warping when scrolling
    Hey everyone,

    First off, I am a new poster to the forums, but I frequently visit them as I find them a great source of information about Macs. I just bought my MBP about 3 months ago.

    The problem I am having is that when I scrolling up or down on webpages in Safari, the text seems to "warp" or run together. Can anyone tell me what the cause of this might be? I have attached a screenshot below. Also, I have run Software Update and I have no new updates to be installed.

    Thanks!

    It appears to be a font problem. Somehow you have a font or fonts that are corrupted which are causing the overlapping of words. I'm not sure it's because you have Office installed although noting that MS Office installs a whole load of fonts.... When did the overlapping of words start?

    Regards.

    It started when I installed office now that I think about it. I just deleted office though and the problem has stopped. Thanks!

    yeah its becuz when u install office...office and safari have the same names for fonts and safari doesnt know which to use so it gets messed up...so if u re-install just dont check the box that says install fonts
