MacOS Mojave

Since upgrading my Mac operating system to Mojave, I get the message `SWP.app needs to download the font "Osaka"' whenever I start SWP 6.0.29. The message gives me the options to `Skip' or `Download'.

Is there any reason for me to need the font Osaka when using SWP when not using Japanese? And, if not, is there something I can do to avoid getting the message in future?

You can ignore it. You can

You can ignore it. You can also download it. It really doesn't matter for you.

As far as I can tell, there is a collection of fonts for the web, of which this is part, so that if you want to read a web page that is in Japanese, you will have a font to display it. I removed this request from the code several months ago, so once you have the next release (soon!) you should not see this message again.
