I saw similar issues from previous users but no solutions provided that helped me. Bare with me, I’m not very technically minded.
Basically I got a new Macbook, and migrated my system over this week. Everything seemed to work alright, minor hiccups here and there. FontBook had issues finding the fonts, but I reset it’s root directory and then all the fonts appeared as normal. Only catch is that it WILL NOT activate any fonts. I get the error seen in the image below every time. I had the root folder set as a DropBox location, but Ive tried putting it in my main directory Fonts folder as well with no change.
What I’ve tried:
- Reinstalling FontBase - No Change.
- Duplicating root folder and re-connecting to the new location. It’s currently set to /Library/Fonts/FontBase. - No Change.
- I’ve checked and added FontBase to “Full Disk Access” in my Macbook settings - No Change.
Anybody have any tips for a layman like me?
I’m not sure what else to do, but if this isn’t going to work I’d like to get my money back on the annual subscription I just signed up for.
- macOS Monterey
- Version 12.6.2
- FontBase version 2.18.1
- Migrating to new Macbook / Adding FB Awesome Subscription
