Mac OS Crash when opening preferences
Darktable for MacOS crashes every time I try to open the "preferences" window. It used to work perfectly, just started today. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Darktable, but the problem persists. I've included the error log that my computer asks me to send to Apple. Hopefully somebody can figure this out. Thanks!

You're definitely on the right track with the .config folder files, because I moved them to the trash, and when the app restarted and created new ones, it works fine again.
I put back the original library.db file and it still works.
I notice that in the new folder, there are NOT 2 files present in the old one: data.db.lock and library.db.lock

- File data.db added
So, I had a look at your data.db and it seems that there are two instances of the "Film Faded Matte" preset. One for the tone curve and one with a garbled module name (and some other issues). Can you remember if you added those inside darktable manually or if they came in from some style? Attached you will find a copy of data.db with the bad entry removed.

Thank you Tobias!! That worked!
I replaced all the original files back in the .config folder, including the data.db file you sent and it works perfectly. My presets are back.
I had added the Film Faded matte preset by myself. I don't know how it could have appeared with a jumbled module, but, if in the future this happened again, what software would I use to to open a .db file to fix this myself?
Your help is greatly appreciated! I desperately was wanting to change keyboard shortcuts and couldn't get to them! :)
