Fontbook states that ‘Problems are found with some of the fonts during validation’. Can I still install and use these fonts on my computer with Fontbook?

Yes, you can continue to use the font files on your computer without any issue. If you continue to install the fonts and then select all of the fonts to validate them, they will pass validation without any errors. Your fonts will work as expected within all applications.

Fontbook validation procedures, particularly at the point of font installation can have issues and especially if the fonts have previously been installed on your computer or if you are installing the fonts directly from your organisations fonts server or a specific folder such as the Adobe Fonts folder. Most validation errors are triggered by the way the font is installed.

This 'serious error' message is commonly intermittent, appearing and not-appearing between computers with exactly the same software version set-up. A common pattern with this error message is when you install the fonts for the first time (without message), uninstall them and then re-install them again, but the message can also occur quite randomly. In all instances, please continue to install and use the font files without concern.

Best practice is to simply drag the font files to your desktop first before installing them.
