No labels appearing in Sky Safari 5 Pro

Name labels are missing from the chart in Sky Safari 5 Pro on a MacPro, MacOS 10.12.6 (Sierra).  All of the labels are enabled in the settings panels but no text appears on the chart.

    Zolt,

    This is almost certainly because the Arial font is disabled (or deleted) on your Mac.  This is a standard font that all Macs come with and use.  Go into the FontBook app and see if Arial is disabled.

    We occasionally get reports of this.  We suspect there is some app people install that disabled the Arial font she some reason.

    Sure enough, Aral was disabled, not sure why.  But the labels are back now.  Thanks, and sorry for taking so long to acknowledge.

    Glad to hear that was it.  I wish I know what application is disabling this standard font.

    I have similar problem with SkySafari 5 Plus for macOS on 10.12.6. I have checked my font settings, and Arial font is installed and enabled. But still not label shown on sky map. 

    Only greek letters can be seen on the sky map. Any idea why? 

    BTW: I use Chinese locale. I tried to changed to English locale, but no luck. 

    A screenshot is attached.

    Not sure what is happening here.  I don't think we've had a problem like this reported before.  If you turn off the Greek Symbols in the Star settings, do no labels appear.

    I will try to look at this but it will likely be an a couple of weeks.
