Oh no. You never never never ever mess with /System. Never! Unless you want to render your system unbootable. Don't even put 3rd party fonts there. The proper place for 3rd party fonts is /Library/Fonts (if you want them accessible to all users on the computer) or in yourhomefolder/Library/Fonts (for just yourself).

As for syncing between multiple computers, what may be the best thing to do is make a symbolic link to your Fonts folder and put that symlink in your DropBox folder. Do the same on each computer. That should keep them all in sync.

As for how to make a symlink, the easiest way is to grab a freebie called SymbolicLinker. Follow the included install instructions.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
