    New MacBook - trying to install a font in Font Book
    I'm trying to get some fonts over from my iMac to brand new MacBook.
    Most of my fonts I've downloaded free so I guess I can just go through that process again but I have one font called Remedy that was in a zip file
    that I transferred over andll the fonts in the folder have .bin extensions
    and I can't seem to get them into my font book. Any ideas? I am
    so lame about figuring this stuff out. Thank goodness you all are out there helping people like me!

    Hi Annie524!

    For .bin files you will need Stuffit Expander to decompress those. And I'm sure that by now you know how to install fonts once they are decompressed? Just double-click on them? FontBook asks you if you want to nstall then and you just click he Install button.

    But may I suggest that, if you have many many fonts, that you use FontExplorer X? It works kinda like Extensis Suitcase but it's a freebie and it's more robust in handling fonts than Mac OS X's own built-in FontBook.
