    Fontbook not installing fonts
    Hi, when I doubble click on a .ttf it opens in fontbook, but when I press install, it dissapears and nothing happens.

    The only way it will behave is if I restart the computer, very frustrating.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    Did you check to see if the fonts were being installed to your user fonts folder?

    Then the fonts may not be compatible with Illustrator. The same problem occurs with certain fonts and Microsoft Office. I have several font sets that I can use in TextEdit and other apps but MS Office refuses to "see" them. Illustrator may be just as fussy.
