Font Validation
0

I'm using FontLab 5.0.2 at OS X 10.7.2 (MacBook) and the fonts that I generated with them don't works at OS X 10.5.8 (MacBook Pro) . This newest version of OS try to validate the .ttf archives and tells me that 'serious errors' were found. The system only links the error with the file, without further explanation. Thus, I can't install my new fonts on my new computer. On the other hand, I'm using the same fonts in the older system without any problem. What's happening? How can I solve this?

I cannot honestly say that I have Clue One about what the real problem is.

However, if it works on older versions of OS X and also on PCs, who is the most likely culprit here?

The font itself, FontLab itself, or the version of OS X itself?

Maybe someone at Apple though a little TOO different…

Hi oldnik,
In fact it's a real problem, because I have to make these fonts run on OS X 10.7.2. Anyway, thank's

what do the standard font validators say about it (MS font validator, Adobe FDK)?
