10.3: Resolve feature in Font Book may cause problems
Authored by: mhylim on Nov 12, '03 12:55:47AM

I had the same problem. Fortunately it only affected my account, so it hinted at being a user-level problem. The console indicated that ATSServer (or something like it) was having trouble reading from a .fodb file. I did a search on the file and found that it seems to be a cache file located in /Library/Caches/ In this directory there are subdirectories of numbers. I think these are userIDs. In my userID, there was a list of files ending in .fodb. I trashed the Local.fodb and Local.fcache. Upon restart things seemed to be fine again. I really think that font book is a dangerously flawed application and should not be used.
