1.8.0.502 crashes after placing bigger .afdesign file, also text styles

Recommended Posts

I know I shouldn't really do this, but after experimenting with the pub18-502 beta and its amazing idml import, I decided to jump into the cold water and use the beta for a small but urgent project (today) in real-life. This way you actually see all shortcomings because you highly depend on it to function correctly.

So my Problem is with placed .afdesign files. I have 8 afdesign-Icons linked in my one-page document. Also, there are some text-styles imported via idml which also have weird anomalies*

At some point I opened the triangle in the layers panel and it immediately showed the beach ball followed by the crash report.

Then, after recovery and redoing the lost part of the work, I imported another, highly complex .afdesign file into publisher and after maybe ten clicks same crash again.

So I want to report this here and in the meantime I will refrain from importing this AFDesign file again and instead convert it to pdf or so...

 

*text style anomalies:

when changing one of two hierarchical textstyles, the other one changes the font-weight. The problem is a combination of the font Helvetica Neue LT which has many font weights combined with publishers style preferences, which differentiate between FONT WEIGHT and FONT TRAITS. My Helveticas weights are listed as Traits. And secondly, the default style is not Roman or Book but "Condensed Light"... which is also bad...
