Close LiveType. Open the Finder and go to: your user name/Library/Preferences.
Trash the file com.apple.LiveType.plist.
Launch LiveType again. Any improvement?A tin of soup, Mac OS X (10.5.8), FCP forum elitist. (PAL B/G)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 11, 2010 2:45 PM (in response to Nick Holmes)Thank you for the reply, but unfortunately that didn't work. It's weird that this issue only happens with the Live Type fonts but not the regular ones.
For the time being I've just included a dash in between works and then dropped their opacity. At least that way I know the spacing will be accurate in comparison of doing the spacing manually.21.5" iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2010 7:28 AM (in response to JDVirgil)Info: I use FCP Studio 2 (LiveType 2.1.3) at the moment, I use Aperture 3, and recently upgraded to iLife 11. I have the most up to date OS X update.
I've been using Pro Series "Bar" LiveFont for some time. This "Loss of Spaces" problem is happening to me also. I've done all the recent updates, I've even recently installed iLife 11. One of the distinct problems I'm having is that previous titles created in LiveType that I know were OK are now converting to "No Spaces" as soon as I open them. Although I'm seeing spaces in the text in the inspector window, the text in the canvas has lost all it's spaces and everything is just all together. Returns work OK, but the next lines do the same...No Spaces???
I hope this problem is tackled quickly by Apple.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2010 8:09 AM (in response to hdskullfire2)You have installed new software
One thing I always do after installing any new software is to repair permissions.
In a nutshell, when you install software it contains a list of files with the proper permissions for each file.
Repairing disk permissions checks the files and compares and corrects differences.
Give it a try.
To repair permissions Go to: Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
Select your system disk
Click on the Repair Permissions button
Wait for the permissions to be repaired

Currently Being ModeratedNov 18, 2010 10:57 AM (in response to JDVirgil)Same here ! - Last night I installed Mac OS 10.6.5 and today the spaces are missing on LiveType titles that had already been correct. And I can't fix them. I hope Apple acts quickly because I have to get this project out and I'm totally screwed right now.Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 19, 2010 8:59 AM (in response to JDVirgil)I just got off the phone with an Apple tech support specialist. He said that Apple no longer supports LiveType (They're converting to Motion), and the spacing problem is simply a quirk of the upgrade to latest Mac OS. We're screwed.
One temporary work-around: You can select letters and words in the CANVAS and physically slide them apart to create spaces.Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2010 9:59 AM (in response to JDVirgil)Same problem here.
I've been using sort of a sloppy workaround, but it gets the job done for me. I use an underscore character ( _ ) as a placeholder for the space, then I go into the Inspector's text window and highlight the underscore, then on the "Style" tab set "Character:" to "Invisible". It can take a while, given that I have to do this for every single space, but...
Hope that helps. I know I'm using an older version of LiveType (v2.1, I think).Various, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 27, 2010 4:30 PM (in response to JDVirgil)I've never had a problem with livetype doing this until now. Very disappointed that the reason for it is that Apple is phasing out LiveType for a better OS. Not all of us have the time to familiarise ourselves in alternative software programs and just want to be able to finish our work!
F.Y Apple, I used to be a big fan but your doing more and more things to frustrate me these days, very close to switching back to PC.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5), Software Installed:
You are a star, thanks. Although I used '.' as '_' gave too much space, but it is nice to know that the different characters give us options.27" iMac i7 2.93ghz 8GB -- 2.4ghz MacBook Aluminium, Mac OS X (10.6.5), Also available on Windows

I don't understand why Apple no longer supports LiveType even though they still sell it with Final Cut Express 4.0. Why stop supporting a product they still sell bundled with FCE?MacBookPro 15" Late 2008, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, NVIDIA 9600M GT
