Install on Mac Doesn't recognise most of my fonts

Please include the flowing when reporting a bug:

  • Your operating system
  • Operating system version
  • FontBase version
  • What actions caused the issue
  • If possible, attach a screenshot

Mac OS 13.2
Fontbase 2.20.7
Have moved a folder of all my fonts from my old Mac to a new one. Added the Folder to FB and all the fonts are listed but hardly any are available.

Just says “These are not the fonts you are looking for” when you click on most of them whether they are TTF or PS which is very unhelpful

Its there a fix?

Hello @BrianH, thank you for your post and welcome to the forum :pray:
Could you please add some screenshots for what is happening to better understand the situation?
If I may clarify, did the old Mac have FontBase as well or the new machine is the first time you’re using FontBase?
TTF fonts should have no problems being displayed, we’ll do everything we can to fix the issue.
As for PS - I’m afraid FontBase only supports TTF and OTF fonts for now :pensive:

Thank you again,

Hi Yuriy

Thanks for the reply.

I think my issue is explained by 2 things:

  1. Fontbase doesn’t support PS yet - and most of my fonts are PS
  2. Although I bought my refurnished Mac apparently with Sonoma it was actually running an earlier system which might have caused issues.

I was using Font Explorer X on the old Mac.

For the moment sadly Fontbase won’t work for me - be great if it supported PS.

Best

Brian

Thank you for the quick reply :pray:
Seems like thing No.1 is the main culprit, thing No.2 shouldn’t have anything to do with fonts being displayed in FontBase as long as the font format is supported.
Very sorry for the inconvenience :pensive:
