At the start-up of the Editor it sometimes occurs that the Editor crashes with a GFontManager error at start-up. This is causes by a font that can’t be processed. Below how to locate the font that causes the problem.

MacOS X:
In order to find and further remove the corrupted fonts, you have the possibility to run the Editor application into the console Terminal:

[…]/Contents/MacOS/[suite name]\ Editor -loglevel 5

This will generate a list of found fonts and loaded fonts, as seen below:

[Debug] FontManager : Loading System Faces
