Missing Fonts and Slow Team Project Opening after 12.1 Update

I updated from 12.0.1 to 12.1 today, wanted to make sure XML importing was fixed.  But encountered some other odd issues first:

1) Opening a Team Project last saved with 12.0.1 resulted in a 4-5 minute wait before it would open.  It has about 1000 project items to load, but this would previously take <30 seconds.  Usually more like 15 seconds.  This is very odd, but perhaps there's some sort of conversion from 12.0.1 happening in the background.

2) Upon opening, there's a message that says "Invalid Font Family: DIN, replaced with Courier New."  Theses fonts were used in a Legacy Title in the project (and many other projects), and when I checked to see if they were still installed, the Mac Font Book correctly shows them.  However, in Premiere's Legacy Titler, the DIN font family (sub-variations for Regular, Medium, Light, Bold) is missing.  There are two other top level font family options that are new, though - DIN Condensed, DIN Alternate.  DIN Alternate looked the most similar to the previous fonts, but there were no variations for Bold, Medium, Light, Regular - it was just DIN Alternate.  DIN Condensed was not the right font.

I poked around in Finder and found that the correct DIN fonts were not showing an extension in the Finder level, they were simply DINLig, DINReg, DINMed, etc.  No .ttf or .otf extensions.  They were in my User/Library/Fonts folder next to other installed fonts that were showing file type extensions.  The DIN Alternate and DIN Condensed were in the root/Library/Fonts folder.  I don't remember seeing those other options before, so my guess is the new updated added them?  Or substituted them with TypeKit versions?

I tried uninstalling the extensionless DIN fonts and adding .ttf and .otf extensions to the files, then reinstalling.  However this only made things worse and Font Book refused to install them saying there was something wrong with the file.  Once I removed the extensions, they installed just fine.  *shrug*

The odd thing is the extensionless DIN fonts worked just fine in Premiere 2017, 2018 (12.0) and 2018 (12.0.1), but this new update has really messed them up.

Any ideas?  I'll have to revert to 12.0.1 if I can't figure out the fonts pretty quickly.

Thanks!

I'll ask around about the font issue, but in the meantime, please file a bug here.

I am having this same problem manifesting this way:

I have a project created in PP 2017 (late November).  Since going to PP 2018, I get a message every time I open the project saying DINCondensedd is unresolvable.  I am not using the team version
