OS 8 and 9 and
a few copies of InTouch 2.5.2
NOTE: Only needed if the Apple's installer on your InTouch diskette
is prior to v. 4.0.8.
There are two minor glitches when installing InTouch 2.5.2 on a machine running
Mac OS 8 or OS 9
The first is a font ID Conflict with the font 'Bar Code Bitmap.' The symptom is
some (but not all) menus show bar codes, instead of normal text. (As shown below)
This only occurs with some early copies of InTouch when installed on OS 8 or OS 9
computers. For these early versions it will always occur if OS 8 or OS 9 is installed
first, and then InTouch.. However, it is easily fixed.
You will find the font inside the Fonts folder, which is inside the System Folder.
Drag the font to the trash, restart your Mac and your menus return to normal. (You
will not be able to empty your trash until you have restarted your computer.)
If you need to use bar codes, complete the above paragraph and then replace the
Bar Code Bitmap font from your InTouch Master Disk. Drag it to the System Folder
(not the window titled 'System Folder', the System Folder itself) and let the system
put it away. That will clear the ID conflict.
The second is purely cosmetic and has no effect on actually using the program. The
dialog box for Importing Text doesn't draw correctly as shown below. The missing
word is "lines".
The problem is caused by the different spacing in the new system font: Charcoal.
If you switch back to Chicago, by using the Control Panel 'Appearance', the dialog
box displays normally.
