I rebooted this morning and now InDesign dosn't know that this computer has Arial on it. I'm running a demo of Suitcase Fusion 4 and Arial is activated. It appears that all Adobe CS apps are having this problem. All other apps can see Arial. Ideas?
One thing I noticed this morning when I rebooted was that I had to do a hard restart because 10.7 was hanging this morning. So when you do that, the computer automatically tries to start up where it what shut down from. In other words, since ID, AI and PS were all open when I forced the restart, then OSX wants to re-open all those apps. Since Suitcase was also open, it goes to open that. However, it opened Suitcase after those apps and I got an odd error in InDesign about how Suitcase was not currently open and it said to shut down, open Suitcase and then re-open InDesign. I did that thinking everything would be cool but apparently it's not. I activated a different font in Suitcase and InDesign see's that one now so it's kind of "half" working.
I also added Arial to users/system/fonts and Macintosh HD/System/Library/Fonts so that I could maybe bypass Suitcase if that was the problem but still nothing in InDesign or Illusrator. Thoughts?

Yea.. I was thinking of doing that but I had to wait 20 minutes for the machine to even start reacting this morning and I finally got everything back up after the reboot. I guess I'll have to do that. Still don't know what's wrong with this computer that makes it unresponsive every morning after I wake it up from the screensaver. Ugh. Shouldnt be happening with a 3k computer.
You might be not shutting down the machine in the nights , most probably leaving in the Sleep mode.....
Can you restart your machine and disbale suitcase fusion and then check out this link:- http://www.extensis.com/support/knowledge-base/illustrator-indesign-ph otoshop-and-quark-xpress-hang-after-waking-my-mac-from-sleep-mode/
No, I don't shut the machine down at night. The screensaver comes on after a while and I don't know if it goes to sleep at some point or not.
However, Suitcase Fusion has nothing to do with that problem. It was happening since I got it pretty much.
LOL. I think I've read that. The reason I started using Arial instead of Helvetica was that when I first started working here, they had like 15 different Helvetica fonts in the font menu. That became a pain in the a$$ to deal with so I just went with Arial. I have a few different versions of Arial but not 15 instances of different versions in my menus.
Still, InDesign only sees Arial Black, Arial Narrow and Arial Rounded. And all I NEED Is just plain old Arial and the Italic/Bold/Bold Italic versions. ARGH.
Ahh crap. Now it works. I had Suitcase closed so I just opened it up and found Arial under System Fonts and activated it. Then I checked the Suitcase fonts and made sure Arial was turned on there. Then restarted InDesign and it's working fine. What a pain =)
There's a checkbox somewhere which can be unchecked to stop the OS from trying to replicate the state of the machine at shutdown. I'm on my work machine with 10.6.8 right now but you should be able to google it.
