Font Problem with Dreamweaver CS5
 
Strange one this:

This only seems to be effecting DW CS5

I installed some hollow fonts into the font folder on the imac, which I have since uninstalled for the following reason

DW CS5 for some reason inherited the font so when you look at lets say properties of a page all of the side text is in the hollow font which of course is totally unreadable

I uninstalled DW CS5 and reinstalled but the problem has not gone away

Has anybody got any ideas what to try next

Sounds like a font conflict

Both the hollow font and the font used for the code view have the same id so are clashing.

If you are using a font manager you should just unload the new font when you dont need it, or select a different font for DMs code view in DMs prefernces

Found the problem

It was a ttf font file in users/library/fonts/

Deleted the font and problem was resolved in DW CS5 as if by magic

Now at least I can see what I am doing lol

This is the puzzle I have removed the hollow font totally

The code view of DW CS5 is showing without problem its the built in parts of DW that are the problem for example on this page where I am replying at the top left hand side is Reply To Thread which is obviously readable

But see attached pic of DW

Its as thoughthe imac operating system still thinks the font is there even when it has been totally removed and a fresh install of DW was done

In that case, the hollow font might still be n one of the font caches.

Download Onyx, one of its many maintenance options is to clear all application font caches

Apple - Downloads - System/Disk Utilities - OnyX

hollow font still there
 
ive tried using both fontnuke and onyx for removing my font cache, yet the problem remains. Ive looked through my font library and there is no sign of the particular font.

did this work for you mel??

I am having the same issue with Dreamweaver CS5. Like you I tried to load Babylon Hollow, Had problems with it, deleted it out of the font library. However there seems to be a ghost of it in my system because this font is appearing in Dreamweaver in some of the popup screens.

Bumping the post in hopes someone has an answer. I have been grappling with this issue for a few weeks and it is causing a real problem with my development. I have tried all suggested fixes above....no change.

Thanks in advance

I'm having the exact same problem. No other solutions as of yet? Using Onyx to clear the font cache didn't work either....

Fix it!
 
I best way to fix it is access the Font Catalog panel and fix all font conflicts. Here is OK! In my Opera, Dreamweaver and others appears crazy fonts!
