Does the crash report say anything that might be helpful?

Did you install any custom syntax definitions that might cause this problem?
I did not install custom syntax definitions.

I have tried to get rid of all textastic related preference files, but it still starts with my theme and font.

You could try to quit Textastic and delete the container directory:
  • quit Textastic
  • delete the following folder: ~/Library/Containers/com.textasticapp.textastic-mac
  • restart Textastic
This should delete all preferences and saved application state.

That worked. Thanks.

Crash on launch has started happening to me. The fix you suggest above works, but I have to do it every time I launch the app.

I had this same problem right after I tried to load a google contacts.csv file. I think it may be the long lines or that textastic tried to parse it before display. On restart it tried to reload it. Perhaps after a crash you can ask whether the user wants to reload or show a list of opened files for them to select from.
