Uninstalling Universal Type Client for Mac OS

Description of Issue

I want to completely remove Universal Type Client from Mac OS.

Description of Environment

This article covers all versions of Universal Type Client running on all supported versions of Mac OS.

How to Resolve the Issue

You can download the Universal Type Client removal script from: http://cs.us.extensis.com.s3.amazonaws.com/fm_uninstall/utc/UT-removal-tool.zip

Unzip the UT-Client-removal-tool-vXXX.command file.

NOTE: If you double-click on the command file to open it, you may get the following error dialog:

"UT-Client-removal-tool-vXXX.command" cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.

If you see this error, Control-click on the file and select Open from the dropdown menu. You should see a different warning dialog:

"UT-Client-removal-tool-vXXX.command" is from an unidentified developer. Are you sure you want to open it?

Click Open; enter a Mac OS administrator username and password when asked.

The script will open in a Terminal window; follow the instructions. When you enter your Mac OS password, you may see bullets, key icons, or nothing as you type your Mac OS password, depending on the version of Mac OS you are using. This is normal.

When the script is finished running, you can quit the Terminal application and restart your computer.
