Fonts

 

As of Fall 2013, users who need to access the fonts on the font server will be able to use the built-in Font Book utility on the iMacs to access the fonts, instead of the FontReserve font management software, which will not run on current operating systems. *
The fonts are located on the server in a folder called fontbackup in the Habit_data folder.

Logging in to the iMac as Habit User (“habituser”) will automatically mount the Habit_data folder, and the folder will open on the Desktop.
This will make the fonts on the server available to you through Font Book.

The Habit_data folder mounted appears in the Dock...
like this:                              or like this:
