Hello,

I've just opened my a Word doc in MS Word 2008 and it's all of a sudden started asking me:

"Microsoft Word want to use the font... bla bla ... that was downloaded from the internet. Allow Microsoft Word to use this font?
And then buttons to either "Show in Finder" "Don't Allow" and "Allow"

These are fonts that are definitely not in the Word doc. And it doesn't ask me if I just start up Word.

It's only just started with these pop up boxes and I've had it and all these fonts for months with no problem.

I've restarted - no luck.

Any ideas?
QUOTE Thanks

Have you verified the fonts that MS Word wants to use? If they're good fonts and verify OK, there should be no problem with Word using them.

Use your Font Book application to verify the new fonts you downloaded.
