I downloaded a bunch of fonts on my first User profile, now I don't use it because of problems and I now use a new profile.

 

How can I get the font book from one user to over ride the other one ??

 

thanks in advance

    Hello, Font Book should be in the New Account!?

     

    If you mean the Installed Fonts, I suspect you'll find them in the old users Library...

    There is a Font Book in the new account, but it does not have the Fonts that I downloaded.  Thanks

    Font Book is an application available to all accounts.

    There are three Font folders (provided by OS X)

    /System/Library/Fonts

    Contains fonts essential to the proper working of the OS and various included applications.

     

    /Library/Fonts

    Contains the standard set of fonts provided with the OS version, and is where you should put any fonts that you want to be shared by all accounts

     

    ~/Library/Fonts

    Is the folder in each account. Fonts in here will be available only to that account.

     

    Log into your old account and transfer the fonts from

    ~/Library/Fonts to /Library/Fonts

    "/" indicates the root (Macintosh HD), "~/" is shorthand for your user folder.
