Font Creator 14 Freezing

Post by Nebuldu »

After installing Font Creator's latest update number 2862, the program consumed all system resources and froze twice. It is not comfortable working.

It obviously works just fine here, so it is impossible to detect the cause from here.

When does this happen, while editing glyphs, working in the OpenType Designer, or random?
Does is occur with a specific font?

I reinstalled font creator version 2862. I've been working for a few minutes. No problem so far.

We have made some more improvements, but I don't think this update solves your issue. But still worth to give it a shot:

FontCreator 14.0.0.2863 (64-bit)

Again, let us know if this is something specific to one of your fonts, or if it happens with any font.

We could use some more information.

Does it also freeze when you disable Real-time Glyph Validation?

Is it a variable font?

Specific glyph editing, like adding or moving points?

The program freezes even though I'm working with different fonts. I'm still working on the regular file of the font. I've never encountered such a problem with any version of Font Creator before. I am now back to version 2853 of the software. Version 2860 of the program was also working fine. But I did not preserve it. How can I access it.

I disabled the Real-time Glyph Validation feature. The program froze when I gave the copy command while working in the glyph.

Let me know the exact steps so I can reproduce it. Maybe even send me a sample font project if that is needed. That way we will be able to located and fix the problem.

I worked on the glyphs of a font project for about an hour. The CPU usage of Font Creator is shown as 0% when the program is open. There was no freezing. I'll let you know if I come across anything different later.

Font Creator 2862 version is frozen again. When I selected the character in the glyph with the mouse pointer, the program froze and became unresponsive.

Can you repeat it with this glyph? Then please send a font project with it so I can reproduce and fix it.

The problem is not in the glyph, I think it's a bug with the program. Because no matter what you do, the program freezes. Except for version 2862, there is no problem.
