Installed MX and it quits instantly upon being launched - Macromedia Freehand

The same here. Unfortunately it is not coherent. I mean, sometimes it constantly crashes on startup, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it crashes on opening a file, sometimes it crashes after one (or a couple) of operations performed on a recently opened file, etc... It is not consistent!! I'm running OSX 10.2.8 on a Mac G5 2x2Ghz and FreeHand MX (11.0) Any help would be very, very appreciated. Even if only an official response from Macromedia that there are known issues with FH MX on OSX and, possibly, what issues. Rui Batista...

    Rui,

    Have you tried the updated version of MX? MXa is a much more stable version than MX and I think you should try it. I also have a Dual G5 with FH10 & MXa installed and they both boot with no problems. As MXa was available I pitched MX away for good.

    We had this problem, turns out it was a font problem. We had one or more corrupt fonts.

    Could be Preference File or Fonts problem. Delete each one by one to test.
