This traceback is printed in the output window when double-clicking some glyphs in the font window:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “lib/eventTools/editingTool.pyc”, line 1034, in _drawInactive
File “lib/eventTools/baseEventTool.pyc”, line 1027, in drawSelection
File “lib/eventTools/baseEventTool.pyc”, line 122, in _get_selection
AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘selection’
It’s not on all glyphs, but always on the same glyphs. I’m not sure what triggers it.
The glyph window opens as expected, and everything seems to work normally in spite of the traceback.
I moved all extensions out of the plugins folder and checked that there are no startup scripts executed.
Still the traceback appears. BTW I’m on 10.8.2.
Can you reproduce it? E.g. when I open /Library/Fonts/Verdana.ttf, the message appears on all glyphs as far as I can see. (Just to give a system font example, but it also happens with OTF and PostScript-UFOs.)
