Mac OS X 10.5.2 Special Report: Adobe application slowness, fixes

Various Adobe applications may be extremely slow to launch after the Mac OS X 10.5.2 update. Clearing font caches may resolve the issue.

“Using Insidersoftware’s Font Smasher (the co. that makes Font Agent Pro, my font mgmt. choice) I cleared the font caches of my system and Adobe apps and that seems to have done the trick. At least Ps is staying open without going into a Program Error loop.

You can use Smasher, like Jeffrey, or Linotype’s FontExplorer X (in the application, choose Tools > Clean System Font Caches and Tools > Clean Application Font Caches).
