FCPX Text Inspector broken?
on Jun 22, 2011 at 2:41:30 am

Been trying to poke around in this more tonight...

Every time I add text to the timeline and try to use the inspector to modify text... seeing nothing. A few times it has popped up an inactive control panel, but can't get to the Title / Text inspector. Link appears at the top of the pane but non-responsive. Will crash the software completely out if you keep trying to inspect the text to change any properties.

Anyone else seeing this?

Don't have it yet, but in scouring as much material as I could find online, I just saw this Apple support doc. Sounds like that might be what you're seeing.

Ugh. Motion had the exact same Font / Text Inspector problems. Been finicky for the last two versions.

I have the same problem crashes every time I enter the inspector for any text element. it can sit on the time line, however if you activate it, it will crash. i'm gonna try a couple things and get back to the post, anyone else dealing with this?



Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7 (11A511)

Regards,
Kevin

Yeah, the box to enter text doesn't show up in the inspector sometimes. But double-clicking the text in the viewer works fine, at least for me.

Had a few invalid fonts. Trashed all of them, nuked the font cache. Can see the Text Editor in Inspector now but it crashes the program out every time I try to use it.

I have similar problem.
Double click or Command-4 (keyboard shortcut) does crash the inspector. Before it did crash, then it did not crashed any more, now is crashing again.
I even tried to open a clean project to see if project was too saturated. That was not the case.
In report file (which comes up when fcp x crashes) this is the information I was able to gather:
.
*** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSImageCacheException', reason: 'Cannot lock focus on image , because it is size zero.'
...
What does it mean, it is size zero??
This is weird specially as inspector works otherwise, and did work before fluently.
How can the program change itself while operating??

it's size is zero? that's weird. it crashes as soon as you make a title and try to open the inspector? i've noticed other posts of people crashing when they have a weird font or when using foreign language characters. could that be why? if you see that again, could you possibly post the entire log? thanks
