Interesting. Thanks for submitting the automated crash reports! Please keep it up, each time if necessary…the information the report provides us can be very helpful.
I haven’t been able to reproduce this one yet. The one I’m seeing - perhaps related - is on quitting Rhino when no documents are open. But I haven’t been able to reliably reproduce that in a debug session either.
it is probably a well known issue but I though it is time to report… just incase.
Please don’t presume it’s well known. Please keep submitting the automated reports with a comment as to what you were doing when it crashed…and if you can produce reliable steps, well, you know the drill
Thanks for reporting that Jeff. I just tested in 5E78w and I’m not seeing that crash on my machine. Thanks for submitting the bug report. Hopefully, looking at the crash dump will help. Keep them coming!
so i did ExportPreferences then ResetPreferences… then relaunch and ImportPreferences …
The crash i described is no longer happening after that.
i was hesitant to try this earlier because i have 11 custom display modes and i wasn’t sure if Importing them was working right or not as i haven’t tested it lately… thankfully, those came back upon importing so all is well (for me at least)
but maybe others who are experience this crash can at least fix it on their end via resetting the preferences.
a little more info i found out that may come in helpful down the road…
if you ImportPreferences -> Advanced Display from another mac, the custom display modes will be merged…
or- the modes from mac#1 won’t replace the ones on mac#2… you’ll end up with the display modes from both computers.
@jeff_hammond Thanks for the detailed description for creating the crash. I was able to find and fix this. The fix will be in the next WIP.
The crash happens when running SetMaximizedViewport in your startup commands during the revert. Don’t know why refreshing your preferences with and Export and Import would fix this, unless it did not restore your startup commands properly.
the startup command didn’t come back when importing preferences… when i put the SetMaximizedViewport back in the startup commands, the crashes happen again.
oddly enough, my new models are now opening in a maximized perspective viewport with or without the startup macro which is why i didn’t notice the startup command didn’t sync.
(which i how i prefer it… i’m just not sure what’s making new models open in the single viewport instead of 4views… any reasons/ideas about that?)
