no planet symbols on orrery

Post by akepooh » Tue Jul 25, 2006 1:05 am

hi...I love your widgets but there is one problem with the orrery. all planet symbols show up as a square. for example, the part where there's H: and D:. i guess i don't have fonts required for it. how do i fix this problem? thanks.

Those symbols ultimately live in "Apple Symbols" font (not to be confused with "Symbol"), which I'm having a hard time imaging wouldn't be installed on everybody's system.

If you launch Font Book and select the "All Fonts" collection is "Apple Symbols" there? (on my system, it's the very last one in the list, since somehow "Apple" is alphabetically after 'Zapfino' and the fonts that start with '#')
