Can't Find Corrupted Font (on mac)
Can't Find Corrupted Font (on mac)

Illustrator has been giving me trouble lately (CC 2015) and I've gotten it to boot in safe mode, and at this point the problem seems to be a corrupted font. This is the prompt I get whenever I start it:


Unfortunately, I can't find this font under fontbook, as I believe fontbook only uses the English alphabet. So my question is what font is this, and/or where can I go to find out what font it is so I can delete or deactivate it? I'm on a mac here at work, and I'm not familiar enough with macs to know how to find where fonts are located beyond fontbook. Thank you!

What is the actual problem, though?

Here are the live characters:
ヒラギノ丸コ - Hiragino Maruko

I redrew the text in a Photoshop TIF, in a large size, opened the TIF in Acrobat, the applied OCR. I could then copy the Japanese text characters out of the PDF file, and finally place the Japanese characters into Google Translate ☺

I've always used FontDoctor to handle font issues.
