I own a macbook and have somehow managed to delete the Apple Symbols system font. Does anyone know where I can download it from as some applications/text is missing symbols.
Drop by a store that has Macs on display and load the file onto a USB drive.
Shouldn't the system fonts be on the OS install CD? (Can't check at the moment, sorry!)
While the system fonts would be included with the OS installer discs, they might be tied up in the installer packages and not freely copyable file-by-file. I'll have a look myself to confirm.
Yup, at least on the Leopard discs, all the files are locked up in installer packages. I didn't try running the installer app to see if the fonts could be selected and installed without the rest of the OS X going in with them.
Ahok. Sorry bout that, and thanks for checking!
you can use the application [[http://www.charlessoft.com/|Pacifist]] to extract and install individual files from Mac OS X installer packages.
