When I try to type with/edit a text layer that uses Font Awesome in Photoshop CS5.1, it crashes straight away.
I am using a late 2015 retina 4k mac, running High Sierra. However, this problem was still happening when I was running Yosemite.
Does anyone know why this happens?
Is there a fix for it at all? As it is super frustrating having to use SVG icons all the time when I can just use an icon font. (Other icon fonts work and don't cause me this problem)
Thanks in advance.
I have tried to install older versions, I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the font.
I have tried the same version I have installed on my Mac on a macbook air late 2012 model, running Yosemite, using the same version of Photoshop and on a pc using the same version of Photoshop and they didn't have the issue at all.
I used Font Awesome on an older Mac, think it was a 2011 model which was running Yosemite and I still had the same issue.
I have tried also tried all of Adobe's suggestions for fixing problems with fonts. I.e. using Font Book to validate all fonts and clearing font cache, disabling font preview and using the Font Test script.
