Both Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer crash immediately if I do any of the following: 1. With either app open, with no document open & with the app hidden (CMD+H), disabling certain fonts in Font Book cause the Affinity app to quit unexpectedly, for example PilGi. (PilGi is one of the Fonts available for download in High Sierra.) I have not determined if disabling only one of the downloadable fonts do this. 2. With any document open in either app, including newly created ones with no layers, opening the Character panel & selecting certain Font Book 'smart' collections from the popup cause the app to crash immediately. This is the list displayed in the Character panel on my iMac: Selecting either "(kind) OpenType" or "(kind) TrueType" does this. These are very simple 'smart' collections: 3. Disabling or enabling at least some fonts in Font Book while either Affinity app is open with a document that has text selected will crash the Affinity app. It does not matter what font the text uses or if the Character panel is open or not, so it is not limited to disabling a font currently in use in the document. • Additionally, one of my Font Book 'smart' collections fails to appear in the Character panel list. It is also a very simple one: It includes some common monospaced fonts like Courier & Monaco, plus Roboto Mono Light, all of which are enabled & appear in the Character panel "All Fonts" list & in the Context toolbar "Font:" lists, & are usable from there. I have no idea why this smart collection does not appear because the others I have created with the "(style)" prefix are similarly based on a "Design style" collection criteria & do appear in the Character panel list. I previously had a separate issue with the Font Book collections (both smart & regular) displaying the fonts from the preceding collection (so for example selecting "Script Fonts" would show the fonts in my "Google Fonts" collection instead) but I finally figured out that was because what is now named "Font Book Favs" was previously named "Favorites" in Font Book, which apparently conflicted with the Affinity app "Favorites." I have tried resetting fonts in Preferences > Miscellaneous with no effect.
