[Generate Cover Plugin] I selected a font it didn't like and now it freezes up!
I was customizing a new template, testing the look of different fonts in the Generate Cover plugin, and apparently I selected a font that the plugin didn't agree with. Calibre instantly froze up. I forced the program to close and then restarted calibre. I tried starting the Generate Cover plugin button and again calibre froze. The only thing I can think to do is to uninstall and reinstall the plugin, but then I'll lose all my old templates, won't I?
I need some troubleshooting advice.
Update: I went ahead and uninstalled Generate Cover plugin, restarted calibre, and reinstalled the plugin. Calibre STILL freezes up when I try to use the plugin.

@eosrose - when you uninstall a plugin its config data is not deleted - that is consistent with calibre itself
Open calibre's config folder, close calibre. Go into the config\plugins folder, there you will find a file named Generate Cover.json, copy it to Generate Cover.jsonsave.
A json file is an editable text file. A simple way to fix it would be to open Generate Cover.json in say Notepad, and replace all occurrences of 'the bad font name' with 'a known good font name'
If you want to do more than that you'll probably need to use a 'smart' editor that will layout the text in a readable structure, google "edit json file on <your os>". On Windows I like Notepad++.
If you break something, replace the .json with the .jsonsave and start over.
If you're uncomfortable editing the the json file, then you can delete it and the PI will build a fresh one, you will of course lose your templates.
