  • PS CS not seeing all my fonts….Why?

    Posted by Gene Michael patrick on April 14, 2005 at 4:45 pm

    Hi all,
    I am just wondering if anyone can tell me why PS CS is not seeing all the fonts I have installed in my Powerbook? When I’m using the text tool, it’ll give me fonts from A-F, then one font in the V’s and then all I get are a bunch of lines at the bottom of the font drop down menu. Illustrator CS does see all my fonts. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

    Thanks in advance for your help,


    17″ Powerbook G4
    1.5 gig RAM
    OSX 10.3.8

    Try this:

    a. Ouit PS
    b. Shut down your computer (wait 2-3 minutes)
    c. Start up your computer
    d. Start PS


    You can force PS to “forget” about the font by doing this:

    a. Quit PS
    b. Uninstall the font.
    c. Start PS, then quit PS.
    d. Install the font again.

    Now when you start PS again, it will treat the font as if was new. If this was what was causing the problem, it should fix it. If you still have the problem, then it’s something else.

    (You may need to clear your font caches using Font Cache Cleaner or Font Finagler and restarting.)
