Glyphs crashes/closes when trying to open file

Since yesterday my Glyphs started crashing/closing when trying to open .glyphs files. It can open .otf files, though. Any fix for this? Thank you!

Is it a specific file?
Any clues in the console?

What version of Glyphs do you have? Did you send the crash report (the one that comes up when you restart the app).
Did you install any plugins?

Hi! My Glyphs is version 2.5 b (1125). Yes, I’ve sent the crash report. I have many plug-ins installed, but the first time the crash happened was when I checked the ‘Glyphs In Their Label Color’ plug-in in the ‘Reporters’ tab. I just unchecked that and I’ll try to re-open the .glyphs file I was trying to open in the first place.

It crashes whenever I try to open a .glyphs file. I’ll uncheck the ‘Glyphs In Their Color Label’ plug-in in the Reporters tab and see if it will work, now.

Unchecking the ‘Glyphs In Their Label Color’ plug-in on the Reporters tab fixed the crashing! Guess it’s something in that specific plug-in. Thank you so much for your attention, @GeorgSeifert and @mekkablue! You guys are awesome! :hugs:


Can you check if you have the latest version of the plugin? And if so, could you send me all of your plugins and the content of your script folder? Something seems to disturb the wrapper and that makes the plugin crash.

How do I check which version of the plugin I have? How do I find the folder in which all of my plugins are? Are plugins also inside the Script folder?

The plugins are in a folder next to the Script folder. If you have installed the plugin through the Plugin Manager, you just need to open it to get new versions of all plugins.
