Affinity Designer 2.5.0 crashes when in fonts menu


Recommended Posts

I had the same thing happening in Publisher 2.5. I found the crash was limited to the AR PL UKai Chinese unicode fonts. All other fonts on my system are working. I uninstalled the AR PL UKai fonts and the crashes stopped.

Hi Kurii and MikeHight,
Welcome to the Affinity forums.

My screen recording shows my problem lol. I've restarted my computer, checked to see if there were other updates. I tried changing fonts in already made files and those crash too. 

As Mike as indicated below, his app crashes using AR PL UKai - unfortunately I can't see what font is being attempted to load as I can't see the dropdown, but the font visible on the text does look extremely like AR PL UKai - are you able to confirm that this is the font crashing for you? And if so is it a TTC or TTF file? Either way removing this in the meantime should prevent the crash.

Hi Mike!

I've been able to get a copy of AR PL UKai as TTC file from inside a Debian package and can replicate the crash with that! Is that the same font you've been using or was yours individual TTF files?

I have a TTF file with the 4 fonts packaged in it. I don't recall where I got the file. It's likely that it came bundled with software I installed some time ago.

I did also get Publisher to crash later after going through a lot of fonts and looking at the typography panel for each one; it seems likely it was memory related and not font related though. It has not crashed for me since then.

The issue "Crash when attempting to select certain fonts" (REF: AF-3194) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "2.5.2.2483".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Affinity Info Bot to notify us.
