I was having a problem with missing fonts in Flash CS4, so I cleaned the font caches using the following commands in Terminal:
sudo atsutil databases -remove atsutil server -shutdown atsutil server -ping
These commands ran fine, so I restarted and opened my Flash file. Now suddenly Verdana is missing in Flash which was previously there.
After all this, Verdana still doesn't load in Flash. I validated all fonts in Font Book and removed the erroneous fonts.
Is there any other way I can have all the fonts load in Flash (eliminate another cache I am not seeing)? I am so sick of Flash and its font caches and Verdana is pretty much a standard font so what am I doing wrong here?

It is a nuisance doing it this way, but it was the ONLY method that worked for me.
This is the ONLY method that worked for me!

After 4 font management applications (trying to clear system and Adobe font caches), it was fixed. I tried:
Finally, FontExplorer Pro was the one that came through for me.
Conclusion: I hate Flash
