I believe you may have also messaged us via Facebook and we replied, but just in case that wasn't you (and just in case anyone's looking for the answer to this as well), here's how you can do this:

1. Open the Console app
2. Type the word Pixelmator into the search field in the top right and press the Return key
3. Type the word font and press the Return key
4. Open the file in Pixelmator, the missing font will be printed in the Console.

Dear Andrius,

I have tried the method that you propose to find out the name of the missing fonts of an old Pixelmator file. However, there is no message in the Console where the name of the fonts appear. I am running Pixelmator version 3.8.1 with Mojave (10.14.3).

Please, could you give me some advice on how to find out the name of the missing fonts?

Thank you,

Hey Fernando, if you don't mind, could you upload the file to and paste the link here? If it's a private file, you can also email it to us at and we'll do our best to help.
