Summary0015184: Writing in unavailable Font Family then trying to change it silently crashes application
DescriptionWorking in the Style Manger, whether with a Paragraph (on the Character Style tab) or a Character style, you can start typing in the Family area (which is also a dropdown box) to select the font you want.

Normally, if you start typing a font name, it will auto-populate. From there, you can press ENTER and it selects the font it started to auto-populate.

However, if you mistype the font name (or type in gibberish) so there's no matching font, you can still press ENTER. This doesn't immediately do anything. But, if you then try to use the dropdown menu to change your Family selection, it silently crashes the application.

This doesn't happen in the Text Properties window as it doesn't allow you to mistype a font name in the first place.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open Style Manager
2. Open a Paragraph Style and select the Character Style tab OR open a Character Style
3. Start typing in the Family textarea/dropdown menu to choose a Font Family
4. Type a font name that you don't have installed (Arail instead of Arial, for example, or some gibberish), then press ENTER; it accepts the faulty font name
5. Try to change the font by using the dropdown menu; it silently crashes Scribus

" This doesn't happen in the Text Properties window as it doesn't allow you to mistype a font name in the first place."

Tested r22423

But unfortunately does happen in 1.5.4 version.

The patch improves this (r22424)?

r22424 is required.
