Can you tell me how the fonts are installed from the Mac download version and, if they are installed, where they are located? The software appears to work whether or not Anastasia is installed. It also appears that I can't use my own customised version of the font with the download version.
With thanks for your kind assistance.
You are correct. Encore 5.05 Mac will run regardless of Anastasia being installed in a normal manner (as described below.)
Most applications that use specialized fonts store them in user/Library/Fonts. Encore does not.
Encore stores its fonts in its application package. The directory path: is Encore.app/Contents/Resources. To open Encore's Contents folder, right click the Encore application and choose Show Package Contents. (Encore will not run if the various Ansastasia font resources are not in this folder. A normal, healthy Encore install will include these font resources, and a number of other fonts as well.)
Oddly the video that Gvox added to its knowledge base
shows us how to use Font Book to perform a normal font installation. I believe this does not effect Encore in any way; however it is handy and necessary if you want to edit Encore score PDFs in an application like Adobe Illustrator, which otherwise would have no access to Anastasia.
