Install and Troubleshooting

Having trouble installing FontLab 8?

Here are some things you can do.


Mac has security features that try to prevent bad apps from accessing your computer, but this can sometimes keep the awesome software out too!

So if you see this:

Go to your Security & Privacy/General settings in System Preferences. At the bottom of the General pane, you should be able to allow FontLab to be opened.

Or go to Applications, right-click the .app, choose Open > Open.


To see if your computer can run FL 8, go here.
