Hello there,


This is probably too late to help on resolving Pradeep's issue but I figured this might help anyone that came across here in the future to look for a solution. The stack trace we can see there seems to be related to fonts, where the similar issue is being described in the bug report and KB below:

it is worth trying to install the fonts as described in the solution above for CentOS/RHEL

What macro is it? 

Or if it's an error before you get to adding one to the page, can you tell us exactly where the error happens?  (e.g. you put { in and it crashes there, or you put { start typing the macro name and it crashes there, etc)

I am adding Roadmap or Widget Macro and clicking on insert button,but it is not  being added on page and save button is getting disabled.
