    Reinstalling FMP 11



      Reinstalling FMP 11


           I am running FMP11 on a MacPro, Lion. I bought this as a used machine, used time machine to migrate apps and files. 

           My FMP11 is my latest, upgrading all the way from FMP8. 

           I am having trouble with existing databases (mine also) which use either Arial or Times Roman in layouts (all type is invisible. Once I reset the fonts to Helvetica or Times, I'm ok. I've been told that I should reinstall FMP11. 

           Is there an uninstall that I should run first, and if so, how many  versions back should I go? (or can I just trash all of the FMP folders from the Application folder?)

           If I reinstall with all versions removed first, how many need to be installed before upgrading with FMP11?

           And is this likely to solve my problem?

               I don't think re-installing is the way to go here. With mac systems where you have trouble with a specific font. The more common problem (from what I have seen reported here), is that you have a duplicate or damaged font suit case. Fix that problem and then FileMaker should work for you.
