This is a follow up. When I switched from Helvetica to Ariel it works fine

I do think there is something screwing going on with PC and fonts. If I open Font Book and turn off most fonts, when I open PC, lots of fonts that are not active still show up in the font list. That's a sign to me that something isn't right with the way PC is handling fonts.

Previously, I thought the advanced text issues that I was having (i.e. PC crashing when Advanced Text items are edited) was related to my use of Avant Garde font. Now, it appears PC crashes regardless of which font I am using. This is huge and really causing me problems.

I just ran one more test, thinking my Advanced Text crashing problem might be related to old preference files. I quite PC, using Font Book I disabled all fonts except for system fonts, removed PC preference files, ran Cocktail and cleared font caches and did the maintenance scripts, restarted, booted up PowerCADD and input my install codes, then used Advanced Text and PC still crashed. I am hoping there is a way for me to downgrade from High Sierra to Sierra until this problem is fixed.

Yeah hopefully there are updates to PC in the works. I feel like I am back in 2002 without Advanced Text and my Blossom Tool Palette. :twisted:

I'm in the process of downgrading from High Sierra back to Sierra, via Time Machine, so I can resume being productive. Next time I'll remember to clone my drive prior to upgrading.

We now understand the problem with the Balloon Text tool. It’s a case of a standard bit of programming dealing with the Text tool attributes, which the Balloon Text uses, where the programming is becoming outdated and needs a modernization. We’ll get it fixed.

Isn't High Sierra 64 bit and PC and WT 32 bit? If so aren't we waiting for a PC WT update which I understand is very challenging.

by challenging I mean the re-write not the timing of the release.

Paul,

We’re okay on the 64-bit issue, which initially only limits apps in the Mac App Store. We will get it done in time. Nothing to worry about.

FWIW,
I haven't seen anything on offer from High Sierra that is a 'must have' so I'm staying on low Sierra for now. If the rumors are true and the next OS (will it be Very High Sierra?) will lock out all 32 bit applications then I will grab the last version of High Sierra and probably sit with that for several years. So for now I'm lying low.
