Thank you for your answer. Yeah, I my question have already been answered, but thanks anyway for letting me know. I'll check how to setup my fonts, thank you so much. I actually tried the Tex Live Utility but it just froze, and I have no freaking clue why.

Will a removal of an old TeX distribution – in this case MacTex-2013 – result in a loss of installed packages and/or modifications I've made? I have a highly customized setup and before I do anything I want to make sure nothing is lost.

> When you say ``highly customized'' what do you mean? I hope you haven't placed anything inside the /usr/local/texlive/2013 branches but only in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local or your personal tree, starting at ~/Library/texmf.
> Also, do you have custom fonts that have been placed in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local or ~/Library/texmf you'll have to let TeX Live 2014 ``know'' about them. If you haven't set things up the best way for doing that download TeXLive2012+Changes.pdf.zip from <https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10932738/index.html> and follow the directions there for setting up fonts. The main advantage of setting up fonts using the method mentioned there is that you need only issue a single, simple command when installing a newer version of TeX Live does the job.
