I am currently using FCP 5.1.4 and upon opening it this morning, the entire editing workspace has the same, illegible font (the letter 'A' in a box). Also, when I try and access my user preferences within FCP, it will crash.

Also, when I try and access my user preferences within FCP, it will crash. I have trashed my preferences and repaired permissions, but beyond that, I am clueless on how to resolve this problem.

 

Here is the crash report (abbreviated version)...

    How did you trash your preferences?

    Hmmm...try PREFERENCE MANAGER from digitalrebellion.com. It's free, and does this with one button push...instead of you rooting around for files.

    Just a shot in the dark.  Make sure that your Mac OS system preferences are set for the correct language.  I'm in Mountain Lion at the moment.  It's in system preferences:  languages and text.

    no idea if a reinstall of fcp would solve the problem.  My guess is that it's an os problem rather than an fcp problem.   

     

    Here are a few things to try.  launch fontbook and validate all fonts.

     

    Go to system preferences:  accounts and create a new account.  Log out and log in to the new account.

     

    Have you installed any new programs recently or done any software updates?

     

    Are you using suitcase by any chance?  It's a font managerment program and I've seen problems in other programs with it.

    you might get digital rebellion's Pro Maintenance Pack

     

    http://www.digitalrebellion.com/promaintenance/

     

    It has a free trial and a crash analyzer.  Not sure if it'll work on such an old version of fcp, but worth a shot.
