Pages 09 documents have messed up fonts.  They used to be OK, they look fine in Quick View but when I open them they're a mess.  Help?

    I guess that the iWork's fonts cache is corrupted.

     

    It's :

    <startupVolume>:Users:<yourAccount>:Library:Caches:com.apple.iWork.fonts

     

    Alas you didn't wrote which system is running.

    So, as under Lion the Library folder is hidden I give you a script which will do the job for you :

     

    --{code}

    set p2l to path to library folder from user domain as text

    tell application "System Events" to delete disk item (p2l & "Caches:com.apple.iWork.fonts")

    --{code}

     

    Of course, let us know the results.

    To be the AW6 successor, iWork MUST integrate a TRUE DB, not a list organizer !

    I deleted the cache and the fonts are still messed up.  I'm running Snow Leopard.

    Did you restart your Mac? Restarting can often clear up little annoyances & even big ones.

    There are Snow Leopard 10.6,  10.6.1, 10.6.2, 10.6.3,  10.6.4, 10.6.5, 10.6.6,  10.6.7, 10.6.8

     

    Which the one used and which way was it reached ?

     

    Was it installed as 10.6 then updated thru SoftWare Update ?

     

    And, I forgot to ask, which Pages '09 version is in use ?

     

    There are Pages v4, v4.0.1, v4.0.2, v4.0.3, v4.0.4, v4.0.5, v4.1

    I have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 originally installed by disk then through software update.  Pages is v4.1

    Thanks

     

    So, first thing to do, apply the combo updater 10.6.8 v1.1

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399

     

    because the updater used by Software Update to update as 10.6.2 made an incomplete job.

     

    I don't think that it's what cause your problem but I don't want to ask for repair tasks on oddly built system.

    Don't worry, I know that it's not your fault.

    Worked like a charm.  Thank you.  Does Software Update often make incomplete updates?

    No, but the earlier ones did, so better safe than sorry.

    Hello

     

    The system updater 10.6.2 is the first one for which I know exactly what was wrong.

     

    In the past, I already had systems behaving wrongly after being updated thru Software update which behaved flawlessly aftre applying the combo updater with the same version number.

    In such case I'm not sure of what was really odd.

     

    This is why I decided that my own rule would be : always apply combo updaters.

     

    It seems that we will have to live with delta update soon as the mac App Store will also apply this scheme if the applications designers decide to behave this way. Given the level of applaude when this feature was announced during the late keynote we may assume that they will be numerous.
