just when I thought it was safe...

Ignore the GRRRR of the previous message because I’m managing to get
on with things fine despite the quirkiness which is becoming quite
interesting, viz:
the sliders on the web colour picker change colour in intriquing ways
when I move them about but at least I’m seeming to be able to get the
colours I want. Perhaps that’s how they should behave. I’ve never used
the web colour picker before.

This sounds like the infamous Font Cache bug that comes up from time
to time with LaTeX. Download and run FontNuke it can’t hurt no matter
what and might even do it.

Alain hi
downloaded version 1.16 from
http://www.jamapi.com/pr/fn/

Running it was quite dramatic the way it brought the system down and
then waited a bit before restarting but seems to have done the trick.
Phew!
Now every app I run has it’s accompanying music of the disks as I
guess it recreates its cache.
Bravo.
You say this is a LatTeX bug.
Interesting. I was doing a fair bit of LatTeX work last night so your
diagnostic is likely to be spot on.
Just saw there’s an article about this on the MacTex user’s group site
http://www.tug.org/mactex/fontcache/
When next have the opportunity I will see about installing a patch.

Thanks
all the best
Julius

No, it is an Apple bug that seems to have finally been fixed. But I
do mostly (a lot of) LaTeX and I learned about it on macosx-

I haven’t bothered. Next time it happens, I will know and just nuke
the font cach.
