I toggle between hide/show invisibles quite often. Since updating to 9.5.1.1 i keep getting this message "Invisibles cannot be shown. Install the Quark hidden font and Show Invisibles again." I have been using since version 3 and I have never heard of "Quark hidden font". Anyone else having this issue?

When you swich to show the invisibles, XPress activates a special font which is rendered on screen for helping you to see the unprintable characters as spaces, tabs and so on. This special font is installed together with XPress.
Do you unistalled something or moved in another place some folders of the original QuarkXPress instalation? Do you use any third party font management utility?

This thing sometimes happen due to font cache corruption, try cleaning it.

Cleaning font cache did not work. I cleaned system and application caches then restarted. I use font explorer and have for years with no problems. This just started happening out of the blue, I haven't installed any other software or trashed any system files or preferences. Strange.

Cleaned again, shutdown this time and now invisibles are back.
