Windows 7: PS CS4 crash, installed 989 new fonts

15 Apr 2011   #1

PS CS4 crash, installed 989 new fonts

So I installed a bunch of PS patterns yesterday and was fooling around. No problems there. Today I installed my old [and some new] collection of fonts, around 989 in all.

I followed this method of installing fonts, dragging them into the control panel's font window
Fonts - Install

I tried to use the text tool in PS CS4 today and the program wants to close itself.

I get this error

Hi, welcome to the forums :)

There is 1 thing you may want to try (which has resolved and APPCRASH for me)...

Click Edit > Preferences > Performance and uncheck the Use OpenGL option.

It could be that during the initial process of gathering the font details, CS4 is trying to use your GPU to process hardware intense fonts. Disabling this may take longer for it to process but could solve the problem.

I'm not 100% certain of this but is well worth looking at. It has helped me in simple cases of a crach while opening an image file

Tried it just now, didn't help. Programs still wants to close.

Is there a way to remove some fonts and then try adding a few at a time? I dragged and dropped the whole lot of them into the Fonts folder in the control panel.
