Crash after clicking on Font Selection/Dropdown

Recommended Posts

AD 1.6.1 and AP 1.6.7 on macOS High Sierra 10.13.3

 

When I click on the "Fonts" select/dropdown menu in the top left corner when I'm using the Artistic/Frame Text tools nothing happens - the drawer that usually shows all fonts doesn't even open - but a beachball appears until infinity and then I have to force quit the app.

 

What I tried to do that didn't solve the crash:

1. Resetting all preferences by holding Ctrl when opening both apps.

2. Completely deleting and reinstalling both apps.

3. Using Font Book, disabling all "User" fonts and also validating all "Computer" fonts.

 

I've been using AD and AP for a while with no issues for a long time. The only recent change that I can think of which could be possibly triggering this is that I updated Pages/Keynote/Numbers to the latest versions that were released yesterday (7.0, 8.0 and 5.0 respectively) and since then I'm getting the Affinity crashes (but the Apple iWork apps work all fine). Could the updates be a coincidence or is there a relevance? How can I troubleshoot further?

I am having this exact same bug. I create a new document, type something, try to change the font from the drop down and it beachballs on me.

Nope. Fonts is known to be a problem now.

Search and see dozens with this problem (including me :( )

sometimes a 'workaround' works for some, but most not.

 

This has been around for ~2 months now, they need to focus on this show-stopping bug!

Hello everybody,

 

Same issues for me.

It's very annoying because I have a wrks to finish for clients and I can't change a font...:S

It' seems that it occured after OSX update...

 

Edit : Fortunately, I can change fonts with RightFont !
