Short description of error
I am a chinese blender user, and I downloaded Blender 2.76 RC2 yesterday. When I try to modify the interface font in the User Preferences window, I open the file browser and navigate to the system fonts folder with the thumbnails option enabled. Then I scroll down to find the font, but suddenly Blender crashed.
I tried to add a new text object, and modify the fonts with the file browser, the same issue(Blender crashed) happened again.
My system font folder has 745 font files with 623MB disk space.
I tried to creat a font folder with161 font files and 368MB disk space, and then tested the file browser in preview mode, Blender did not crashed again.
It appears that there is a limit to the number of files that the Blender file browser can handle in preview mode. I did not experience this problem with Blender versions 2.75a and earlier.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Open with Blender 2.76 RC1 or RC2;
- Creat a simple text object or enter the User Preferences window, and click the open button to modify the fonts.
- Navigate to system fonts folder(745 font files with 623MB disk space) and scroll down to find proper font.
- Blender crashes when I have not scrolled down to the end of the folder.
Perform the same steps with a folder with161 font files and 368MB disk space, and it loads the file without any problem.
