Font Substitution Problem - Macromedia Freehand

    Default Font Substitution Problem

    We just upgraded one of our designers from a G4 running 10.3.8 to a G5 running
    the same system. We use Suitcase 11 to manage fonts and are running Freehand
    11.0.2. Since he has migrated, Freehand will no longer print all fonts
    properly. In some cases it looks fine on screen but will substitue Courier when
    printing. We have tried these fonts in other applications and they print fine.
    It appears that only Freehand is running into problems.

    I know if we convert the font to paths it will work fine but we'd rather not
    have to do that every time. We have searched for duplicates and found none,
    and most of our fonts are working properly. Has anyone found a solution to
    this problem?

    I have seen the same problems with all verison of Freehand 11. Including 11.0.0
    11.0.1 11.0.2. None of these updates has resolved this issue. Is there a formal
    way to log a bug?

    The problems with the new version stem beyond these. Into Seperations etc. We
    are currently running Freehand 10. Which seems far more stable. Howerver
    occasionally the fonts do have problems.

    If you are using fonts what has helped, is to reinstall Freehand, then
    reinstall the font delete the ATM font cache /Library/Cache/com.apple.x
    then reboot. Make sure the fonts are not currupted if you have Suitcase

    I have checked for currupt fonts however the same issues seem to be occuring
    with freehand, although it is more intermittent now. Even with Freehand MX

    This is a bug in FHMX, revert to FH9 or use Indesign.
