    Macfixit has posted an article, also pointing to this thread here on the Apple forums.

    Yes, that's all you need to do. Revert to 10.6.6 and everything behaves normally again.

    ME TOO!
    Having problems on various software, all font related so it seems. Come characters don't display, others are replaced by wrong characters, PDF and EPS can't embed some fonts.

    MESS!! What do we do?
  • Ko be Level 1 Level 1 (50 points)
    and what about software, I will need to reinstall? and preferences?
  • Kurt Lang Level 7 Level 7 (34,885 points)
    First and foremost, have a complete backup of your current drive you know can be restored in case anything goes amiss.

    Boot to the Snow Leopard DVD and choose your main drive where 10.6.7 is installed. Click on the Options button to change the default install options. Such as turning on QuickTime 7 and Rosetta, which don't install by default. When you have your choices the way you want them, proceed with the install.

    When installing SL to a drive which already has SL on it, it overwrites all OS files with those from the DVD. All of your third party apps and preferences stay the way they are.

    After the install is done, apply the 10.6.6 Combo updater and any other updates available, except for 10.6.7. The only thing I've found that you sometimes need to reinstall are your printer drivers.

    One other detail -- to find the combo update, and any other update which is not offered to you on the Software Update screen, go to
    http://support.apple.com/downloads
    and search. Oh, and with operating system updates you'll stare at the list at first not seeing why there are two updates for each release. One is client and one is server.

    Ok, Thanks I'll try it. unless you think the problem will be solved by apple in a couple of days.....
  • Kurt Lang Level 7 Level 7 (34,885 points)
    You can bet they're working on it, but there's no way to know when a solution may be provided. I've reverted to 10.6.6 for now. Couldn't get some types of work done without doing so.

    FWIW, at least if you follow the method described in the link & run the "Install Mac OS X" app instead of starting up directly from the DVD (& maybe even if you don't), the default options will automatically be set to what you probably want. For instance, if you have PowerPC apps installed that require Rosetta to run, the installer will notice this & install Rosetta by default. If you don't, it won't. Similarly, if you now have a Quicktime Pro license activated that unlocks the advanced editing features of Quicktime Player 7, a Snow Leopard compatible version of that app will be installed in the Utilities folder. Otherwise, it won't be installed, nor is there usually any reason to install it because without the Pro license it won't do anything Quicktime Player X (which is always installed anyway) won't do better.

    The Snow Leopard installer also will look at the printer drivers currently installed & use that to decide what printer drivers to install, although you still may have to update them.

    Since the problem seems to be with .otf fonts only, I converted mine to .ttf from here:
    http://www.freefontconverter.com/

    Fast, free, does not affect the original and works like a charm - at least for Flash.

    Nope. I've tried it both ways. If you start by running "Install Mac OS X" from the desktop, the options installed will not mirror what is already on the drive. If you have Rosetta installed, it will be removed. All of your printer drivers will be removed in favor of a default install. Meaning, it installs every printer driver on the DVD. X11 will be installed, even if it wasn't before.

    It's much better to boot to the SL DVD so you can control the install options.

    This OpenType font problem with OS 10.6.7 is not restricted to Adobe products. Upon opening documents with .otf fonts that I created in ACD Systems' Canvas, the typefaces appear distorted and the program reports that the fonts are corrupt.

    As others have stated, this problem does not exist when running under OS 10.6.6.

    With all the Apple and developer beta testing that occurs before an OS update is released, I'm surprised this problem slipped through.
  • R C-R Level 6 Level 6 (15,905 points)
    Hmm. I've tried this several times, & for me Rosetta (& QT Player 7) are installed without my having to use the options button. Are you sure you have at least one Power PC app that requires Rosetta installed on your Mac? It doesn't matter if Rosetta was previously installed or not, just if you have any PowerPC apps.
