I recently downloaded 3 different fonts on to my computer. I have installed them and enabled them. but neither of the three fonts will show up in microsoft word. I really need to type something in this font. Please help. thanks.

    Try resetting Font Book.


    Restart your Mac and immediately hold down the Shift key when you hear the startup chime to boot into Safe Mode. Keep holding the Shift key until you see a progress bar towards the bottom of the screen. You can let go of the Shift key at that point.


    OS X asks you to log in (you will get this screen on a Safe Mode boot even if your Mac is set to automatically log in). Let the Mac finish booting to the desktop and then restart normally. This will clear Font Book's database and the cache files of the user account you logged into in Safe Mode.
