    CS6 suite crashing in Mountain Lion, the fix

    OzSanta2

      I had a persistant problem where the CS6 trial of Photoshop crashed on 'Save As' under a new install of Mountain Lion.

       

      After 3 days, and many re-installs, I tracked the problem down to 4 installed fonts, two of them Adobe font suitcases.

       

      They are...

       

      #PCmyoungjo.dfont

      #Pilgiche.dfont

      Adobe Sans MM

      Adobe Serif MM

       

      Removal of the above, which checked out fine using Font Book, also stopped my Office 11 suite from crashing on startup.

       

      I had also removed every faulty font from my list of 2100+ fonts, and only when a clean install with the minimum of fonts worked, did I try dragging extra fonts in a few at a time, then, Bingo! Crashes.

       

      CS6 worked fine under Lion with the full font list, so obviously something dramatic has changed in Mountain Lion regarding handling fonts.
