Fontworker high CPU spin for prolonged time (days)?


#1
  • I have the current versions of Suitcase 7, FontDoctor (no errors) and Adobe Creative Cloud.
  • No recent changes to fonts, and the extensions have been updated.
  • Between fontd and fontworker, I pretty much have 1 CPU pegged.
  • There’s nothing in the console logs that jumps out

Any suggestions?

Hi!

Both fontd and fontworker are Apple OS X background processes. More often than not this issue is due to a corrupt font cache. You can clean that up a few different ways but there is a handy command in Suitcase Fusion that will clean them for you:

  1. Under the File menu select Clean Font Caches…
  2. Click Clean and Restart… and allow your computer to reboot

Thanks for using Suitcase Fusion 7!
