Crash on PDF open

Postby musicmanindy » Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:28 pm

My Photoscore lite 8 is crashing when I hit the button to open a PDF. I have used Photoscore for a long time, and have had no issues prior to the last 2 days.

Computer
Mac, High Sierra,

Solutions tried:
Going through menu instead of button
Editing permissions as suggested by Avid
Rebuilding directories using Disc Utility
Fresh install of Photoscore
Fresh install of Mac OS

Any ideas?

Does this happen with all PDFs, including one you've opened before, or a particular one? Not all PDFs are created equal. I've had some that won't open. Try opening it as a some kind of document. Text or PDF. Then save as a PDF. I've never tried it that way, but it might work. I use free software called "Cute PDF Writer" to do this.

This might have something to do with the language your computer uses. In any event, PhotoScore is not and Avid product. You might have better luck going to the Neuration website for help.
