[Done] OS X: Font issue at system level

by SparrowhawkMMU Thu Jan 28, 2016 9:07 am

Hi fred,

I have hundreds of instances of the following line in my OS X system Console log:

27/01/2016 17:00:35.325 SpiderBasic[3890]: CoreText performance note: Client called CTFontCreateWithName() using name "Courier New" and got font with PostScript name "CourierNewPSMT". For best performance, only use PostScript names when calling this API.


They don't appear to be causing any issues that I can tell, but it might be worth renaming the font to the suggested value - it might speed up IDE load times perhaps?

SB 1.20b2 OS X 10.9.5

FYI - I just checked and it also affects PureBasic (5.41 LTS):

28/01/2016 09:08:01.515 PureBasic[1811]: CoreText performance note: Client called CTFontCreateWithName() using name "Courier New" and got font with PostScript name "CourierNewPSMT". For best performance, only use PostScript names when calling this API.

FYI: Still in SB 1.20, still "spamming" my console logs :(

I also spotted these two which you probably want to fix as otherwise a future OS X update may break SB:

23/02/2016 09:30:55.674 SpiderBasic[1981]: *** WARNING: -[NSImage compositeToPoint:operation:] is deprecated in MacOSX 10.8 and later. Please use -[NSImage drawAtPoint:fromRect:operation:fraction:] instead.

Still happening - SpiderBasic, when running, is the single largest contributor to the logging system (see bottom left of the image below):

I don't know if it's really SB related, i don't see it on my OS X. Can someone else confirm ?

Fred, I am not seeing this problem in Mojave. I searched the console for "SpiderBasic", "CoreText" and got 0 entries.

So for whatever reason, the problem has gone away :)
