Try booting in safe mode holding shift at startup and see if it still does it there. Safe mode will flush out your caches and OS X will rebuild them when you reboot again.

I've already had to "tame" Helvetica Neue on my iPad by choosing the bold version.  But on a desktop OS the font is far more significant.  Surely we ought to be able to choose.

I'm assuming you have a developer membership and are running the OS X 10.10 Developer Preview. If so you will want to login to your developer account and go to the bugtracker / feature request section. I've included the link which should prompt you to login and then continue to the relevant page.

Its driving me nuts and will force me to switch back to Mavericks soon - something I want to avoid as I like Yosemite already for multiple reasons.

Is everyone experiencing this? I have an i7 MacBook pro (retina) with 8GB of memory and it doesn't looked like a performance issue if Activity Monitor is anything to go by.

If others are not experiencing this I might try a clean install

I accessed the video on the Apple site - no problem. My MBP is so old that it runs off of coal, so don't know what you may be having going on. I've NEVER Had to do a clean install and I've been Maccing along since the 128k Mac in 1894. Probably need to zap your PRAM.

It has nothing to do with "figuring out a way". It's a dumb idea and Apple is not up for dumb ideas.

He was talking about running the OS X 10.10 Developer Preview, not watching the video. A lot of people are having this same issue upgrading from Mavericks -> Yosemite. A lot of them are having more success doing a clean install of Yosemite, but there are still lots of bugs.

 

Also, I know Apple is innovative but I'm pretty sure they didn't make a computer before Mr. Ford made Cars affordable. Unless, your real name is Martin McFly? :)

You didn't mention checking Disk Utility. Before my installation of Yosemite my system was fine, but after I had many blocks with incorrect counts. Had to ⌘-R and Repair Disk. Note: I wasn't having any specific issues before that, I just checked as a preemptive measure of using Developer Previews.

It was Little Snitch causing the problems in my case. Uninstalled and performance is MUCH better. There is a compatible nightly build apparently but I haven't tried it.

Oh yeah. They totally break network access every time a new OS is released.
