Font Book keeps crashing as soon as it loads now that I have installed Mountain Lion. Is there a Font Book update that I need? I currently have Font Book 4.1


Using a 27" iMac 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 with wireless keyboard. Don't seem to be able to do a Safe Reboot either.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Font Book 4.1 is the version that ships with Mountain Lion so there's no newer version available.


    Perhaps you have a corrupt font or the preferences file for Font Book is corrupted.

    You were right; corrupt fonts. Reloaded all fonts but did not validate any with issues. Seems to be fine now.


    Until I need them again, of course. Which, most probably, will be in the near future.


    Thanks for your help. I will persevere with Mountain Lion until something else goes haywire. Not impressed so far.

    Glad you resolved the issue.  I'm sorry your experience with Mountain Lion hasn't been positive.  I've been using it for quite a while now and have found it better than Lion in pretty much every way, which in turn was a good experience.
