Hi there,

Some gremlins seem to have taken over my iTunes interface and music library and have changed all the fonts to some alien hyroglyphics! I opened the application and every song and interface font is unreadable.

I have tried re-installing iTunes three times but nothing changes. All that's happened is now all my songs are in the library instead of in playlists - which has made things more difficult if I'm trying to find a particular song. If I highlight the song, it comes up in English but that doesn't really solve the problem.

Can anyone please help? I use iTunes everyday as part of my job. This is crucial that this is fixed.

Quit iTunes. Do a search for iTunes (Apple F). Find iTunes.plist and trash it. Empty trash and reopen iTunes, going through everything again.

If that doesn't work, maybe post some screenshots.

Have you enabled any themes or played around with Silk? TinkerTool? What language are you using?

Does iTunes work correctly in another user? Create a new test user account if you don't have another user yet.

Did you recently turn off fonts in FontBook?
