The following instructions assume that you have previously backed up your hard drive or have created a backup copy of the FontAgent Pro Fonts folder and the folder holding the FontAgent Pro database. If you have not made a backup of the FontAgent Pro database and FontAgent Pro Fonts folder, you will need to recreate your database and re-import all of your fonts.

And finally, these instructions also assume that you've already installed a fresh copy of FontAgent Pro.

The following are the folder locations that you will need to restore:

  • /Users/[your username]/FontAgent Pro Fonts/ (NOTE: if you had chosen a different location for the FontAgent Pro Fonts folder during the Setup Assistant, your FontAgent Pro Fonts folder *might* be in a different location)
  • /Users/[your username]/Library/FontAgent Pro/ (NOTE: In OS X 10.7 and later, the User Library folder is hidden. The quickest, and easiest, way to get to this folder is folder is to hold down the option key on your keyboard, then click the "Go" menu in the Finder's menu bar. You should then see the "Library" menu option, which upon clicking it will bring you to your User Library.)
  • (Optional) /Users/[your username]/Library/Preferences/com.insidersoftware.fontagentpro.fontmanager.plist
  1. Quit FontAgent Pro.
  2. Restore the items listed above, making sure that they are in the exact locations specified and that the folder/file names are exactly as shown above (i.e.: "FontAgent Pro Fonts" folder should not be named "fontAgentPro fonts" or "FontAgent Pro Fonts Backup". The folder name is case sensitive)
  3. Restart your computer.
  4. Open FontAgent Pro.
  5. Select the All Fonts tab in the FontAgent Pro window.
  6. Then select all fonts by selecting from the menu bar, Edit > Select AllĀ (command-a).
  7. From the menu bar, select Tools > Verify Fonts.
  8. Wait for font verification to finish. You should get a report after verification is finished.
