A customer of us is reporting a problem after upgrading til FMS and FMPA 17.

Fonts that previously worked fine is not now working on a new setup. probon one machine while working on others.



  1. Both running FileMaker 17 on Mac.
  2. FIleMaker Server 17.
  3. Fonts installed on both machines and available in the font menu.
  4. But when opening the same file, going to the same layout .
    1. .. on Machine A the font is replaced with Helvetica
