Postscript fonts problem in Intel-base iMac

I recently switched to a new Intel-base iMac. It has OS 10.4.11, adobe CS3, and Suitcase Fusion. My problem is my intel-base iMac read all Postscript fonts as TEXT DOCUMENT! I ran the Font Doctor and all the fonts are good; both screen fonts & printer fonts are in the same folder. The font folder is stored in the network server where my colleagues can share. They have no problems reading it. The only differences are my colleagues use Power G4 Mac with OS 10.4.10 and I use intel-base iMac with 10.4.11.

I asked Extensis for tech support and the answer I got was to make sure to run the Font Doctor and have both postscript fonts in the same folder.

Then, I called Apple support and they told me to have a intel-base/universal version of font manager which might solve the problem. But I already have a universal version of Suitcase Fusion! And problem still there.

Does anyone have this problem? Please help!

thanks in advance

I don't know if this would help, I am not much of a techie, but have you tried putting the fonts in a folder on your own harddrive instead of keeping it on the server?

I have a very similiar problem now. I ran Disk Utility on all my hard drives and checked suitcase for updates which I still had the most up-to-date version. Adobe CS3 still crashes before it even finishes launching. Anyone have anything to recommend? I do have fonts stored in 2 different font folders, and I'm not sure which one is best to keep and which one to trash.

Here's the path of the one.

/library/fonts

and the other location is

/users/username/library/fonts

I am running the same OS with Adobe CS3: Acrobat Pro, Illustrator, Indesign, etc.

These issues have absolutely nothing to do with PostScript Programming. Please repost in the appropriate Creative Suite or typography forum.
