# Front end crash on Export in 10.2 on OS X

Bug introduced in 10.2.0 and fixed in 10.3.0
Appears to be specific to OS X

Mathematica 10.2 is reliably crashing for me when trying to export a pdf that has text with ligatures. For example:

ExportString[Text["fi"], "PDF"]


crashes the front end.

Is anyone else seeing this? I'm on Mac OS X 10.10.4.

• Yes, I have 10.2 on OS X 10.10.5. It also crashed for me today when I used Alexey's code to try to export a sample of every font I have installed. It might be related. I didn't track down which font it was but some have ligatures for lots of character combinations. Or maybe a font name just had "fi" in it. Aug 14, 2015 at 18:34
• Can you report it to support and link back here? Aug 14, 2015 at 18:36
• I cannot reproduce on Windows or Linux, only on OS X. Aug 14, 2015 at 18:40
• This crash is due to a bug in the Pango library. It has already been fixed upstream and in the development version of Mathematica. Aug 14, 2015 at 18:44
• I can confirm the crash on OS X and 10.2 Mathematica. Aug 14, 2015 at 21:07
