Hi. So sorry if wrong forum, hope not

I want to change my system font to Casual. So I find Font book, but how the H*** do you enable a font ??? I tried the help option and also Google, but there is no useful help to be found anywhere.... !

Please help ? I can only see how to add new stuff and disable/remove, but not to enable... Thanx

I have read it is not possible, but I've also read that TinkerTool (found here) has support for changing fonts in cocoa apps. This may be worth a try, but it doesn't seem to provide a COMPLETE font change (from what I've seen with my own two eyes).

Hope this helps!

UNless there is the word OFF next to the font then it is enabled

BUt if you want to set the font for OS X menus etc. then download TinkerTool

TinkerTool: Download

I think I used OnyX to change my fonts. Also free.
