How on earth did this get released when so many of us are having crash on startup issues.. InDesign CC is now 'parked' and we'bve gone back to CS6, along with other posts on here, the sofware just 'bombs' if you attmept at access the type tool... after all the fanfare i find this totally unbeliveable. I've tried all the font workarounds as suggested, but still no luck.. fingers crossed for a 'cloud' fix soon!
Hi Steve, may well be, I've been following all the other threads with interest.. we use FontAgent Pro which manages our system fonts, obviously there's no auto-activation plug ins as yet, so no troublesome plug-ins.
I've been trying to isolate any problem fonts without any luck so far, I only have to touch the type tool in the tool bar an d 'boom' down she goes.. CS6 still works fine though. We've thousnads of fonts being a design consultancy and trying to isolate a problem font could be a nightmare. Any further advice much appreciated.
Sorry to hear that, Nigel!
From what we've observed, the cause might be related to fonts with special characters in the name.
Here's a list of fonts reported by our users. By no means this is a complete list and but it should provide a good point to start troubleshooting:
Typo3-Medium.ttf, Typo3Normal.ttf, batang.ttf, Savoye LET, Ithornët
Our engineers are aware of the issue and are working on providing a resolution soon. Thanks!
I had the same problem all day yesterday, cost me a days work. In the end I uninstalled CC and gone back to CS6, everything works perfectly again. Didn't have much luck with Adobe online chat help either. If it aint broke, don't fix it! Adobe CC (Creative Crash).
Agreed. I've seen the work around topics, and trying to isolate an individual font (or fonts) from the library of thousands that I have is a complete waste of time. These are "Productivity" tools. This wasn't an issue in the past, why is it an issue now, on one of the most basic tools in the suite? Text. My clients are waiting for work, its ridiculous.
ADOBE. Get. This. Fixed. (Please).
If you are having issue with the Text tool, please try the plug-in posted in this thread: http://adobe.ly/11QAawV
