I've recently started a new job where the computer (mac Pro4 OS X 10.6.8) I'm using was being used by someone else before I started. When I open Dreamweaver (CS4 already installed when I got here) all of the dialog boxes have a strange block font which is hard to read and in some cases, cut off and I can't read what certain fields are supposed to be.
I tried fooling around with the preferences in dreamweaver and I reset all settings to default in dreamweaver, but nothing I tried made a difference.
Below is a screen shot of what I'm trying to explain. You can see the dark block font describing what each field is. All of the dialog boxes and properties panels are like this. How do I change this to something like arial or helvetica or anything that's easier to read than what's showing?
After some mad google-fu, I found a page talking about this same thing. It appears to be a font conflict. Some font added to that machine has the same id as the font DW uses for the dialog boxes and DW is going to that font instead of the default.
If you can find that font in your Font Book and disable/delete it, you "should" go back to normal.
Thanks for the help. I've been working on cleaning up the font book for a while. I got rid of the duplicates and all of the fonts with red "x's". I restarted the computer and it hasn't changed.
Then I went through all of the fonts and deleted all of the fonts that looked similar. It's still there. I probably just haven't found the right font, but I appreciate your help.
You can see it here on the opening credits too......so strange.
