I took a screenshot of a font loaded into FontBook that I'm having trouble with, April-Skyline.

If you notice in the screenshot, there is a "dash" or "hyphen" in front of the font name. The other fonts do not have this dash in front of their name.
Whenever I load a font, and see this dash, I immediately know that the font will not show up in any of my program menus even though it "appears" in Font Book. The other fonts that have no dash/hyphen all appear in my menus and work correctly. This font was created in 91.

What I have discovered - If a font has a dash/hyphen (-) in the font name, then Font Book will always put a dash in
front of the fonts name in the Font Book list. I wonder if the font name has anything to do with my problem.
Its almost as if having a dash in the orginal font name causes problems with Font Book.


Anybody familiar with this weird issue?

Thanks,

Hairfarm

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
