    When I use Font Awesome in Photoshop CS5.1, it crashes straight away

    keyp48031983

      When I try to type with/edit a text layer that uses Font Awesome in Photoshop CS5.1, it crashes straight away.

      I am using a late 2015 retina 4k mac, running High Sierra. However, this problem was still happening when I was running Yosemite.

      Does anyone know why this happens?

      Is there a fix for it at all? As it is super frustrating having to use SVG icons all the time when I can just use an icon font. (Other icon fonts work and don't cause me this problem)

      Thanks in advance.

      EDIT

        • I have tried the same version I have installed on my Mac on a macbook air late 2012 model, running Yosemite, using the same version of Photoshop and on a pc using the same version of Photoshop and they didn't have the issue at all.
        • I used Font Awesome on an older Mac, think it was a 2011 model which was running Yosemite and I still had the same issue.
        • It also works fine on Illustrator (CS5.1) & InDesign (CS5.5)
        • I have tried to install older versions, I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the font.
