(FIXED) 2.20.7 not working on fresh mac install

  • Mac Studio/Apple M2 Max | MacOS Sonoma 14.2.1
  • FontBase 2.20.7

Downloaded a fresh install. Cannot start the application. Have been A/B testing this against FontAgent after Fontbase randomly deleted all of my saved folders, tags etc. a few months ago. Want to give FontBase one more shot before I pay for FontAgent, which I don’t love, but has been more stable. Here is the rundown:

  • Quit FontAgent, turned off all auto-logins
  • Downloaded/installed 2.20.7
  • restarted
  • opened application; nothing happens; does not pop up in dock;
  • restarted; open application; nothing again, though shows up in Activity Monitor?

Any ideas?

Hello @kevinmercer, thank you for your post and welcome to the forum :pray:
This app behaviour is quite odd, hm.
Would it be possible for you to try to reset the settings following guide Reset Settings — FontBase Tutorials and see if that helps? To uninstall FontBase, reset the settings, then install again.
Thank you again,
FontBase Dev Team

That seems to have worked, thanks.
