I have a problem. Using Mac OS 10.2.3, Font Reserve 3.1.1, and Director MX, if I turn on a font in Font Reserve, they are not available in Director. Any suggestions?

Director, IIRC, does not support auto activation of fonts. You need to activate your fonts in FontReserve, and then launch Director. If it is already running, quit Director, activate your fonts, then launch Director. Auto Activation is only available to select programs which can support it through a plugin.

I have the same problem trying to get myriad to show up in Final Cut Pro. Hower I used Font Suitcase, so it may be a different problem but to the same effect. I bet its something to do with where the font is physically located? <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

try installing that font directly on your system font folder. Sometimes that takes care of it...

It takes care of it, but that's not a desirable solution, you know?
