This is making me very nuts: in TextEdit when I click on any font collection to switch fonts in the font chooser thingy ALL my fonts are there, working, living peacefully side-by-side, swapping font stories and enjoying the Summer.....until I foolishly and cavalierly click on "All Fonts". After that any recently installed font no longer shows up either in its collection location, or more troubling, under All Fonts! In other words, after I click on ALL Fonts NONE of my installed 3rd party font collections are available. I'm left with a big, blank white space where there was once lovely fonts waiting, neigh, vying for a chance to be used so as to show their stuff, haughty in the knowledge that their uncanny beauty and style would elicit oooos and aaaahs. But I digress.......
Interestingly, at the very top of the list in "All Fonts" I find, mysteriously, the following fonts: .Aqua Kana, .Helvetica LT MM, Helvetica Neue Desk UI, .Keyboard, .Times LT MM. And, yes, they are all preceded by a dot. They are, from my googling around, are special system fonts, so they are not the problem. Also, the Collection "English" lists only two: Hevetica and Times which usually shows 269 in Font Book or apps like Pages. Hmmmmmm?!?!?!
The installed fonts that seem to play now-you-see-'em-now-you-don't are font collections from DeKorte, Jerak Durzan and SummitSoft forcing me to close and reopen TextEdit to make some font changes (a true sphincter-attacking pain). Repairing permissions did not fix it. All the fonts validate and show up, without incidence, in Font Book and other apps which leads me to believe this may be a problem peculiar to TextEdit or maybe the work of Satin or perhaps evil pixies. At this point, I'm leaning toward pixies.
