Cocoa Save Problems

in macOS edited January 2014
As soon as I choose save in any Cocoa Application the program hangs. So my computer is pretty useless as it is now.

I checked with gdb in the terminal when trying to save a document in textedit. This is the errorcodes I got.


Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

    Hmmm. Yes, yes, this is very bad. Very bad, indeed.

    Have you tried repairing the disk and its permissions yet? Do that.

    I have tried almost everything but reinstalling. Tried checking the disk, repairing permissions.

    Someone said that it could have with some font to do.

    Yes, it does seem to be a corrupted font or something very close to that. In fact, you may be sure the problem is not with apps themselves, it's Core Foundation failing under the Cocoa hood.

    I'd recommend creating a new 'dummy' user to see if the problem is system-level. Then either trash your prefs and fonts or try re-installing at least the latest system update.

    I hope it helps.

    Thanks for all the help.

    But I tried everything and it was some sort of fault in system-level. Tried with new users but I ended up just reinstalling the system and now it is fixed.
