Glyphs 2.3b tends to crash


#1

Glyphs 2.3b tends to crash pretty often. The last version was far more stable. I already send some of my crash reports.

Should I consider downgrading it ? I am afraid to get corrupted files or to lose data/work.


#2

I uploaded an update yesterday (2.3, 831) that should fix the most frequent crash.


#3

Thanks !

I will put it to the test :slight_smile:


#4

It continues to crash. For me it is impossible to work. Please see the video attached here.

Is there a way to downgrade to an earlier version?

IIRC you can usually find the previous version in your computer’s Trash.


#6

Am I the only one who’s experiencing the blank sample text and edit view width in the Preferences? If you try to interact with the text box, the app crashes.


#7

Fixed the sample text.


#8

There is a big red warning above the updater for a reason. This is an early beta.


#9

What did you click in the vide0? And did you send the crash reports?


#10

Only clicked the flip horizontal button


#11

I uploaded a new version.


#12

It does crash all the time. Can’t open any file.


#13

I didn’t test it properly in MacOS 10.9. I don’t have access to my test machine until Saturday but I hope I have fixed it.


#14

I use 10.9. It went all crazy. When I looked into the font info, it combined images from my emails (!) which I had checked before.

I have downgraded it into version 830, the more stable and less buggy one.


#15

I couldn’t quickly find out how to downgrade to stable… =) How did you do this?


#16

Redownload the app from http://www.glyphsapp.com/buy


#17

It would be nice to have a simple way to downgrade from the UI, same as there’s a simple way to upgrade :smiley:


#18

Do you know any app that allows this?


#19

Could also create problems, e.g., if you use a feature that is not available in the stable version, and therefore have a non-downgradeable file. I think redownloading the app is OK. After all you can also keep both versions in the Applications folder.
