Clicked on Views Icon- now robofont crashes on open.
I had a UFO open, and clicked one of the "Views" icons. Robofont crashed, and now I cannot open UFOs.
I'm running MacOS High Sierra.
I've deleted RoboFont, all .py, preferences and Mechanic master extensions. I've restarted my machine. Robofont 3.0 and beyond open, but give me this error when I try to open a new or previous UFO:
**A problem occurred when trying to open this UFO.** Traceback (most recent call last): File "lib/doodleDocument.pyc", line 276, in makeWindowControllers File "lib/doodleFontWindow.pyc", line 66, in __init__ File "lib/UI/fontOverView/__init__.pyc", line 244, in __init__ File "lib/UI/fontOverView/smartSetList.pyc", line 1064, in __init__ File "lib/UI/fontOverView/smartSetList.pyc", line 935, in __init__ ValueError: NSInvalidArgumentException - Unable to parse the format string "Name CONTAINS……… (then lists a character set)…
Pre-3.0, RoboFont simply crashes.
I've tried loading multiple versions in SafeMode without success. I've tried opening UFO's with Single Window mode checked and unchecked.
Is there anything else I can try to fix the bug?
Somehow you managed to add a Smart Set in which the search query is not valid.
You can use a script to remove a single item from the Smart Sets list, or completely remove all Smart Sets.
Run one of these in a Scripting Window:
1. Remove all Smart Sets
# be careful: this is not undoable from mojo.UI import setDefault setDefault("smartSets", )
2. Remove a Smart Set item
from mojo.UI import getDefault # get all Smart Sets smartSets = getDefault("smartSets", ) # print out Smart Set names with index for index, smartSet in enumerate(smartSets): print(index, smartSet["smartSetName"], smartSet.get("query")) # set an index number, and uncomment the lines below # indexToRemove = 3 # del smartSets[indexToRemove] # setDefault("smartSets", smartSets)
Wow, that fixed it. I have no idea how I managed to unknowingly do that.
