Re: Damaged fonts?
I think ATM Deluxe was dropped with Classic (9.2x)? Linotype
FontExplorer X is an absolute essential with OS X.
I have the 9.2 and 9.2.1 and 9.2.2 upgrades if you need them. As I
recall they have to be applied in sequence.

Without all the Russian and other Eastern-block programmers working on
it, we'd still be in font hell.
I don't actually know who did the engineering on FontExplorer, but it
would not surprise me at all Linotype picked it up from an East German
or Russian team. FontLab, of course, is 100% Russian in origin. Very
nice guys, all around, regulars and now major sponsors of the annual
ATypI conferences (this year in Mexico City! atypi.org)
I expect that the concentration on math and science made for a
generation of highly talented programmers.
Somehow, there has never been another font management tool that comes
anywhere close to FontExplorer.
