FrameMaker 12.0.4.445 crashes if a font is missing in Windows 8.0 all patched up. This is a repeatable crash.

1) Open FrameMaker 12.0.4.445 and create a new blank document (named TestEmbeddedFont.fm).

2) Type the following lines and apply the fonts indicated using the Format > Font and Format > Size menu selections. (The top two lines are Times New Roman 12 pt.)

Test font embedding

This is Times New Roman 14pt.

This is Arial 14pt.

This is Futura Book Oblique OTF 14pt.

This is Times New Roman 14pt.

3) Save the file TestEmbeddedFont.fm.

4) Open the file, and all seems fine.

5) Close FrameMaker.

6) Uninstall the font Futura Book Oblique from Windows.

7) Reboot Windows.

8) Start FrameMaker.

9) Try to open the file, TestEmbeddedFont.fm.

The result is FrameMaker just quits. There is not even an error message.

Also note that the Futura Book Oblique font is a purchased .OTF manufactured by Adobe.

Thoughts?

Cheers,

Sean
