Error message in system log on OSX (Myriad Web Pro)

I'm using PrE 11 on OSX 10.9.

I created some projects and was wondering why some tasks are very slow. For example the export/publish menu takes seconds until it opens. Entering a name for the folder/dvd takes arround 1 second per letter. In the console of OSX there are tons of messages (arround 30 per second) like this:


07.11.13 12:23:40,053 Adobe Premiere Elements[13016]: CoreText performance note: Client called CTFontCreateWithName() using name "Myriad Web Pro" and got font with PostScript name "MyriadWebPro". For best performance, only use PostScript names when calling this API.


I'm not quite sure but i "feel" that the publishing process takes too much time too .....

What i did for troubleshooting:
- reinstalled PrE11
- uninstalled PrE11, deleting the font directory, reboot my machine and the reinstalled
- created a new fresh test projekt
But unfortuanately none of those things worked for me.
Any ideas?
Thx Jens

    I've noticed reduced performance on OSX Mavericks also.


    Though how much this performance is reduced depends a lot on which processor you have, how much RAM you have and which model of camcorder your video is coming from.

    Meantime, be sure to run the font checker on your Mac.


    With the Finder open, select Go/To Applications and open the Font Book.


    In the Font Book, select all fonts and, from the File menu, select Validate Font. Delete any that appear to be corrupted or troublesome.


    You'll be amazed how many issues this resolves!
