You may recall a few weeks ago when we reported a widespread problem in Mac OS X 10.6.7, where documents with OpenType fonts in them did not print or view correctly. At the time, our recommendation was to roll back to 10.6.6 and wait for a fix. Unfortunately for some, this may have caused problems with other OS patches, resulting in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation.
Late yesterday, Apple released a patch to 10.6.7 to address this problem. According to the update’s release notes:
The Snow Leopard Font Update addresses issues displaying and printing certain OpenType fonts and is recommended for all Mac OS X v10.6.7 users.
If you’re running 10.6.7, you can get the patch via Software Update or download it from Apple’s support site.
