After updating to OS X 10.6.7, some users have reported difficulty exporting PDF and EPS files from Finale which contain embedded openType Postscript fonts. The problem seems to stem from fixes Apple made to close some security vulnerabilities in font handling. Apple has been notified of this, and Finale is not the only application experiencing theseproblems.
We have not encountered or received reports of problems with the fonts that currently ship with Finale (Maestro, Broadway Copyist, Engraver, Etc), however we suggest users exercise caution when updating to OS X 10.6.7 if the use of third party openType Postscript fonts is required.
If you have updated to OS X 10.6.7 and are experiencing these problems, you can try the following:
1) Utilize a different font.
2) Clear your font cache by typing the following into Terminal:
atsutil databases –removeUser
You may be prompted for your system password. After doing so, restart the computer.
If you are not comfortable using Terminal, free utilities such as OnyX can do this as well. You can clear the font cache under Cleaning > Fonts Tab > Execute (make sure System and Users is checked first).
OnyX is available here:
3) Downgrade to OS X 10.6.6 by re-installing 10.6 from your Snow Leopard installation disk then apply the 10.6.6 combo update available here:
