1. Quit TextEdit (if it's running). 2. In Finder, Open a new Finder window and navigate to ~/Library/Preferences/. 3. Delete files with names starting com.apple.TextEdit.plist. 4. Launch TextEdit. –  Global nomad Feb 11 '13 at 17:41
    
I did try this; there were 2 of them. I deleted both and relaunched; same problem. –  David Feb 11 '13 at 17:42
    
That rules out the same problem I had with TextEdit crashing. Corrupted plist because I kept switching from iCloud to local SSD. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. –  Global nomad Feb 11 '13 at 17:44

If you use iCloud, you might also have a go at System Preferences->iCloud and uncheck Documents & Data from the sync list. –  IconDaemon Feb 11 '13 at 18:56

NSFont is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the font handling part of Mac OS X.

Try launching Font Book (or your preferred font management app) and using it to detect and fix any font problems.

more things to try:

When I click the Al Bayan font in Font Book, I get a similar crash –  David Feb 11 '13 at 21:05
    
I was able to fix the problem by refreshing the font cache. Thanks a lot! –  David Feb 11 '13 at 21:32
