- Operating system version
- FontBase version
- What actions caused the issue
- If possible, attach a screenshot
Hello @RalphAn, thank you for the post and welcome to the forum
The folder location (do you mean the Root Folder field?) - is it on a local drive? Do you have full read/write access rights to it as a user?
As for the notification itself - does this happen to any fonts at all, or just some specific ones?
Does this also happen on the pre-loaded Google Fonts?
Also, is this your first time installing FontBase on this computer?
Thank you again,
FontBase Dev Team
Hi @yuriy , Thanks for your message. Yes, I ment “Root Folder Field” which is a local folder indeed. Yes, I do have access/rights. It happens to all fonts. I transfered all of the applications from my old macbook, than Fontbase didn’t work so I uninstalled it and downloaded it again but it still doesn’t work. Kr
Thank you for the quick reply and for the additional info
This is very odd.
Would it be possible for you to reset Fontbase settings by doing the following:
- uninstall FontBase;
- make a reserve copy, then delete this folder “~/Library/Application Support/FontBase”;
- install the latest app version downloaded from fontba.se
- test font activation on the pre-loaded Google Fonts (requires an active internet connection);
- then change the Root Folder directory to the desired one;
- test again on Google Fonts or any of the fonts you used before;
Hope this helps,
Hi @yuriy, Tried to do it but I don’t have a Fontbase folder in ~/Library/Application. Uninstalled and installed again. Still the same issue
Thank you for the quick reply.
Could you please also check ~/Application Support/FontBase ?
