atsutil fonts [-list | -verify]
atsutil databases [-remove | -removeUser]
atsutil server [-ping | -shutdown]
atsutil tool controls some aspects of the font registration system. It may be used to modify font auto activation settings, font protection
settings, remove font registration databases and caches, or restart the font registration daemon.
fonts enumerates all fonts available to processes in the OS. It also performs a consistency check of the fonts available via font management
databases will remove fontd System or User databases along with any cache files. Removing databases may cause the loss of font registration
state: fonts activated outside the standard font directories, font faces disabled, and font libraries. New databases will be regenerated from
fonts installed the standard font directories after the user logs out, restarts, or the fontd server is restarted.
server queries the status of fontd or shutdowns the fontd. Shutting down the fontd will spawn a new fontd. Shutting down the server is NOT
recommended and will likely lead to misrendered text or application crashes.
