FC is crashing nearly everytime I use the type tool or import type from AI or PS. It happens after import when I select the text to modify. I am running FC Beta 2 and am on Mac OSX 10.6.1. (the properties panel under common blanks out (doesn't show anything ie. X:, Y: W:, H:, Etc...) right before it crashes.)
I am having the same problem. While trying to edit text on button state.
Thought i'd post back here.. I think I have fixed the type tool issue in Catalyst. Since I am a designer by trade I had about 2500 fonts enabled on my machine... I usually dont have them all enabled but I just bought my new computer and didnt even think about it... so I disabled a good chunk, at least half, and the type tool is working fine so far.... it's only been about an hour or so since ive done it so, not sure if its 100% solution, but at least it has helped...
Might want to check the amount of fonts you have enabled when working with catalyst... keep it to a minimum.
Thanks for the report. I'll file a bug about this.
