Affinity Designer 1.8.1 crashes when searching through 1.400+ fonts

Recommended Posts

I have over 1.400 fonts installed on my MacBook (Catalina 10.15.3). When I create "artistic text", input any text inside and try to change the font by searching through all my fonts, after a few inputted letters in search Designer simply crashes. No report is given, no chance to recover any document and not a word about the crash when starting Designer again.

Three big differences: Not happening here with the 1.8.1 update and OS 10.14.6 and just over 300 fonts. Some one else has the same problem, can't be sure of my memory but I think they were running OS 10.15.xx as well.


MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Mac OS 10.12.6 || Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 10.14.6

Affinity Designer 1.8.3 | Affinity Photo 1.8.3 | Affinity Publisher 1.8.3 | Affinity Designer Beta 1.8.4.2 | Affinity Photo Beta 1.8.4.183 | Affinity Publisher Beta 1.8.4.663

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (Crash when trying to type into the Font Dropdown) of the program in the latest customer beta. If you would like to try these changes the beta software is available in the forum posts listed below.

The latest beta builds are downloadable from links at the top of each of these beta forum posts.

These betas install parallel, next to the release version (they do not overwrite your release) and so the fixes can be tried in the beta without affecting your normal workflow in the release version.

Once these programs have been through a full beta process the change will be released in a future free 1.8.2 update/patch to all customers.

Is there a similar fix for the iPad? I have iPad six, software version 13.4, with 35GB of extra space...

This post points to the latest iPad 1.8.3 beta builds, which rely on you installing Testflight. These builds should be released to all users very shortly
