Mangled Monaco 9 and 10 Glyphs

Daniel Sandler with a report and screenshot of a mangled “G” in Monaco 9. I saw this two times last week with Monaco 10, with two different glyphs — “m” and “x”. Michael Tsai has seen it, and John Siracusa has been complaining about it to me via AIM, as well.

I hadn’t seen this before last week, nor had I heard about it from anyone else, so I suspect it’s a bug in Mac OS X 10.4.4. The solution seems to be to delete your font caches and restart. To do so, delete everything in this folder:


(Or, if you use Linotype FontExplorer X, choose Tools → Clean Font Caches.)
