    Please try steps below to fix your issue:

    Step 1


    Delete your cache and reload the editor.

    How do I delete my Cache files?


    Windows

    First of all you need to turn on hidden files and folders.

    Windows XP:
    My Computer
    'Tools'
    'Folder Options'.
    The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

    Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    My Computer

    'Folder and Search Options'.
    The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

    Once this is done, follow the instructions below:

    Windows XP:
    1. Open “My Computer”
    2. Navigate to : “Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\
    3. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder.
    4. Go to the “Editor 2012” Folder.
    5. Delete the 'cache' Folder found inside here.

    Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    1. Click “Start”
    2. Click your username on the start Menu
    3. Click on “AppData” and then “Roaming”
    4. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder
    5. Go to the “Editor 2012” Folder.
    6. Delete the 'cache' Folder found inside here.

    MAC

    Deleting your Cache on a Mac

    Remove from Caches following the instructions below:

    - Go to Finder
    - Go to Macintosh HD
    - Go to Users
    - Go to your home (Shape of a house) folder
    - Go to Library
    - Go to Caches
    - Go to Sports Interactive
    - Go to Football Manager 2012
    - Delete all contents in this folder.


    Step 2 (if needed)


    If the above did not work can you try deleting your cache, uninstalling FM2012 Editor, restarting your computer and then re-installing the Editor.

    I'm out of ideas then. I can redirect you to the official SI forums for FM12 bugs.
    Good luck!

    _________________________________________
    Get the Message "Warning: did not find font resource: fonts/helveticaneueots on game launch

    It relates to the "skin cache" file called fm2012.skc.

    You can delete the preferences and cache from the library folder,
    Steam does write to these foldesr.
    However they are hidden if you are using OSX Lion -
    you have to make it show by opening the terminal and typing the following

    chflags nohidden ~/Library/

    This will allow you to see your library and delete the caches. However the simple way around is to disable the "use skin cache" tick box in the preferences panel - this has completely resolved my problem. "

    Let me know if it worked.

    Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\[YourName]\Application Data\Sports Interactive

    then use the search funtion(the magnifing glass icon) to look for fm2012.skc inside the folder, when you find it, delete it. You have to do this everytime you need to use the editor. If there are more than one fm2012.skc file, delete all of them.
