Android Studio Crashing after press “Ctrl + Space”
System Config – macOs Catalina 10.15 Beta
Android Studio – 3.4.1 and 3.5 Beta 5
I have already tried
A workout around is to add
-Dsun.font.layoutengine=icu to the VM options.
Which you can do via
Help > Edit Custom VM Options.
Yes there is issue in All intellij IDE causing crashes on Mac Os Catalina Beta 2, From the logs I see that IDE crash because of OpenJDK, Android Studio was working fine on Mac Os Catalina Beta 1, but started crashes on Beta 2, I downgraded back to Mac Os Mojave because it was impacting my production machine, I learn that never use Beta on Production machine. I advice you to downgrade your Mac Os to stable version. Or wait for intellij to update their apps to support Catalina.
You can go to /Applications folder and right click on Android Studio then select Show Package Contents , Goto to Contents/bin/studio.vmoptions and add at the end of the file :
Restart the IDE.
Switching IDE java runtime to Oracle JDK 8 worked for me. To switch the IDE Java runtime:
- Install “JB SDK Bintray Downloader” plugin (screenshot) in Android Studio
- Follow the instructions under
All platforms: switch between installed runtimessection to change the IDE java runtime – instructions
I’ve been using it for 2 hours now and no crash, no slow-ness, etc.
1) Update your Macbook OS to get latest in my case it was : 10.15.3
