SOLVED Ghost start up item
Colo-in-NYC last edited by gferreira
A few days ago Robofont crashed on me repeatedly. After the first time, upon restarting one of my fonts defaulted to being a "start up" item and was opened. After a couple more crashes I checked and saw that I needed to update the program. I did so, but the "ghost" start up item is still there. More annoying than debilitating, but I just wanted to make sure it was not a symptom of something else. Also, poking around I noticed that there is an autosave cache located somewhere. Would clearing that (can you do that?) help this issue? Cheers
good it disappeared!

Hello, apologies for the late reply. Thank you for pointing out that the "ghost" was likely a Mac feature. Whatever cache that was in has apparently cleared, as my ghost is now gone. I suppose it is a "feature" for when Mac senses an application has crashed? Sorry to be a bother. Didn't think it was something serious, but it had never happened before, so I was curious.
I was going to upload my log to this, but I don't have the privileges necessary to do so. If you would still like it I'm happy to send in any manner convenient for you.
could you check or send me your console log? and see if there tracebacks.
RoboFont does not reopen previously opened documents, this is a feature of macOS see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204005
