I've been having a problem editing any kind of text in all documents (new and exisiting) in CS3 5.0.4 on Mountain Lion. Any time I try to create a text box, try to edit existing text, create a form and change the content to "text," or do anything related to text, the program crashes. I've already reset the preferences, and this did nothing.
I installed CS3 from the install discs to my 2012 Macbook Pro when it was running Lion. I have since upgraded to Mountain Lion. This is the first time I've done any serious work in the program since I upgraded. All other functions appear to be working properly.
I can't seem to find any threads about text editing crashes in this version of the program, and I don't really understand how to decipher the problem from the crash log, here:
Any guidance is much appreciated! Thanks!
Sounds like you did an "in place" upgrade to mountain lion rather than an erase and install. Adobe apps don't do well with that. Uninstall, run the clean tool (CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3) and reinstall CS3.
