Upon opening Pages, Keynote or Numbers I'm informed that it "needs to download the font X" with a skip or a download button via a dialog (great choice, something that remains in the centre of the screen regardless of which app is focused). It's just one font, it's perhaps 10 or 15 that reappear in a loop. I need to go beyond 80 clicks to clear them, even if I quit the app. Choosing download or skip makes no difference, the fonts are never installed, I don't know if they're even downloaded.
I've tried opening Font Book to download them there but when I click the download button I see a download meter appear and disappear in a flash. The font is never installed. They are all in the list of Mojave downloadable fonts.
I use a standard user account most of the time, so I logged in to my admin account and lo and behold, those 3 apps are marked for update. I ran the update, all 3 downloaded, not one updated.
I'd like to be able to get some work done instead of wondering how to track down and berate the developer that doesn't know not to test installs with elevated privileges, let alone for not making them work, so if you're feeling charitable (to me or that dev), any help will be much appreciated.
iWork apps are:
- Pages v8.2.1
- Numbers v6.2.1
- Keynote v9.2.1
I got those version numbers from the GetInfo mechanism, there's no way I'm opening the apps up again.
