Re: Digital Font Question
Brian is correct here. But if you don't have the original font to
replace (not uncommon these days with downloadable purchases and
neglect in backup) you might be able to regenerate the suitcase
(bitmap/screen) font from the outline (printer) font by using a
font-editor such as Fontographer or FontLab. Open the outline font and
regenerate the suitcase. This will often solve the problem.
A program that can often fix corrupt fonts is FontDoctor. FontDoctor
is included with Suitcase 10, or at least was included with mine. It
can be purchased separately.
I use Suitcase for font management. The recent version of ATM (aka ATM
Light, version 4.6.2+) no longer does font management. ATM Deluxe
(combination manager/rastorizer) was discontinued with the new Mac
OS, though you still need ATM as a rastorizer if you are running
