You have some fonts that came with AW6 (or iTunes or the iTunes scrips?) and aren't certain where to put them for use with X?<br><br>If they not font type .dfont, which are OS X fonts, I wouldn't put them anywhere, especially if you use Office X. Office X for some reason I don't understand uses OS 9 True Type fonts if classic is running. Some True Type fonts are also in Library/Fonts.<br><br>Note this is not Users/username/library/fonts. I assume fonts placed there are unique to that particular user. And I'm baffled by what Users/username/library/FontCollections is all about. It appears
to be something like the old embedded fonts prefs and Microsoft prefs for OS9.<br><br>Because Office X reportedly has problems with certain fonts, mostly older ones and/or those not compliant with Apple guidelines for the classic Mac OS, I've removed all fonts from the OS9 System folder, other than the 4 System fonts and those not already installed in OSX Library/Fonts. All
fonts includes fonts in Fonts, Fonts (Disabled), Applications Support, and any others as Office X accesses all fonts in the System folder of classic when it is running. I suspect this also causes classic to load a little faster.<br><br>I've deleted all things Microsoft from my OS9 volume. I knew where to start with OS9 fonts by using TomeViewer with the Tome Installer file from OS 9.1 update as I do not believe there are any fonts in later updates. Not knowing if there might be a problem (I doubt it) I removed all the "duplicate" fonts as noted above which are also in OS X Library/Fonts. By doing so I also got rid of any AW6 fonts installed in OS9 as well as Microsoft fonts with the same name as Apple's. All Microsoft applications and assorted odds & ends related thereto have been deleted from my OS 9 volume.<br><br>Just checked my Word font menu as it's always running and I must have access to at least 50 fonts. Some are Adobe and presumably were installed by Acrobat. (Noting the names of the files in the FontCollections folder, mentioned earlier, may be useful.) <br><br>I have traced the source of all fonts in the Word X menu when classic is running and believe
all of mine are in Library/Fonts of the OS X volume or Fonts folder of System folder of OS9 volume.<br><br>I've had no problems with this. Office X apps "quit" and launch faster than previously on my TiBook. ~50 fonts is more than adequate to meet my needs for the present.<br><br>For the time being I'm leaving well enough alone. Any fonts installed in Library/Fonts by OS X, Word X, Excel X, AW6, or Acrobat Reader I'm leaving there. If and when I find that folder of fonts you're talking about I'm going to make certain it's tucked away with all my Adobe Type 1 and 2 fonts, misc others in a folder about 55MB in size on my OS9 volume.<br><br>I don't use fonts in Photoshop 6.01 all that often but have had no problems. The only OS9 app of any consequence which I've used in OS9 is GoLive 5. In that case since I was editing existing files I simply quit classic in OS X then moved all the Adobe Fonts from Applications Support, other Adobe and other TT back into the OS 9 System folder and booted into Classic/OS9.2.2. <br><br>I had a Fonts folder already standing by for this eventuality. It simply has all the stuff I removed from System folder, OS 9 in the first place.<br><br>This is a bit of a pain, and may serve no good purpose, but I do know that various misc. OS9 apps I run in X, along with Photoshop, have no problems. I haven't had classic crash, for example, since updating to X 10.1.<br><br>Personally I'm not adding a single font (or removing one) from Library/Fonts until I get a better handle of what is going on. I don't run ATM under classic as I have two good inkjet printers and have no use for a laser printer.<br><br>I didn't really try to answer your question at all, did I?
If for some reason you think you need the fonts I'd dump them in Library/Fonts, logout and log back in.
<br><br>Actually I like your question. I'm hoping someone who knows what they're doing will jump in.
