  • Problem Description

    Editing Text object Properties can cause C2 to crash. Unfortunately I have no idea what causes it to happen or not happen, I just know it's happened a few times in my experience over the past year, causing me to learn to ensure I save the project before making edits to the Text object's Properties. I think I notice it especially happens after clicking/editing the "Font" Property in particular, such as by selecting a Font, Font style, and Size, clicking OK, and then having a crash. My only guess to any special case I have is that I have a lot of downloaded fonts on my system. Not hundreds, but a lot.

  • It's very difficult to do anything without reliable steps to reproduce. Can you narrow it down at all? Also what exactly are you doing when you say "edit text object properties"? Please try to be as specific as possible.
