Use the Adobe Myriad font in other Applications Apps
Ever since MWSF 01 I believe, Apple has strayed from their trademark Apple Garamond font and has gone with the Adobe Myriad font. This font is built in to Adobe Photoshop, but I've found a way to use it in other applications as well.

Navigate to /Library -> Application Support -> Adobe -> Fonts -> Reqrd -> Base (the top-level Library folder, not your user's Library folder). There you will find the fonts entitled Myriad and Mryiad Pro. Simply duplicate them (Command+D) and place the copies in the Fonts folder in your /Library -> Fonts or in your ~/Library -> Fonts folder. Now they will be availble to use in other applications.

[robg adds: These fonts are included with Photoshop Elements as well, though the "Pro" font is named MyriadPro-Regular.otf.]

oddly Myriad Pro wasn't on my computer! i had done a smaller install and i guess that got left out! after reinstalling it's all good now

vacuums do not suck. they merely provide an absence that allows other objects to take the place of what becomes absent.

For some reason this doesn't work for me, i copied Myriad to those folders, and I still can't use it in apps like iChat

In Tiger, double click on the font file, it will open in Font book and ask if you want to install the font.
