You have Suitcase Fusion installled.
Go to the System Preferences and at the bottom for third party Preference Panes click on the FM Core and enable it.
FM Core is Font Management Core part of Suitcase Fusion it i not turned on by defauLt? I do not know why.
You should be fine once it is turned on.
I was wondering if you would give me the folder chain that I might find this. I couldn't find it on my Mac at home, so I know that I won't find it on th work mac where I have this problem. Thanks I really appreciate the help you sent, FMCore, makes sense, Font management. Guess that just reinforces for the positive the idea of keeping logs of what is installed, updated, uninstalled, etc on computers. Able to keep a running idea of what might cause the prob. I did install Fusion 2 on the work mac but haven't really set it up for font management as it is a demo.
Thanks again, and if you can show me the exact path to the file I would really appreciate it.
