Photoshop 21.1: Files with fonts/type in them keeps crashing

Since opening my Photoshop this morning, it crashes EVERY time I try to use it. When I launched the program, it ran through a screen "validating" photoshop, which I assume means there was another update. I've since uninstalled (twice, including preferences), restarted, and relaunched countless times. Nothing has fixed the issue. It seems to crash quickest with any files containing fonts. Basic JPG images hold on longer before the crash.

It's a good thing I don't have a deadline due for fixing my files...

This issue should be fixed in Photoshop 21.1.1 which was released earlier this week.
