Arial reverts to Helvetica - OG 4.1.2 Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
When I create a .graffle file on my desktop box and move it to my laptop, any text that was set in Arial reverts to Helvetica. Files created on the laptop and opened on the desktop box are fine.

This occurs only with Arial. Have tried other System and non-System fonts and it works fine. It occurs in files with no stencil or template dependencies. Arial is a little more compact, so this can mess up diagrams with tightly formatted notes.

Both computers are running OSX 10.4.8. Desktop is a G5, the laptop is a Core 2 Duo. I've trashed the preferences, resolved font conflicts, all the usual stuff.

Anyone got an idea what's going on or how to fix this?

I have the identical problem with exactly the same hardware. We have been uable to resolve and it burns so much of my time having to rework collaborative docs. Don't suppose you've had any luck?
This is just a guess, but it might be that the different machines might have different versions of Arial with differing Font IDs. This might cause OmniGraffle to fallback to Helvetica since, to it, the original font is missing on the second system. Arial and the other Microsoft fonts are often problematic for me, as different versions are installed by OS X, Office X, Office 2004, etc....
