Version 5.3.2 (5D197) Crashing when connecting Polyline Points

I am looking for suggestions to help fix a continuously recurring problem when connecting a polyline point to make a completed curve. Every time I do this step Rhino crashes. I tried reloading the application and this did not help.

Any help would be appreciated.


I forgot to add that I am running on Mac OS Version 10.8.5.
Computer is a Macbook Air with 1.8 GHz Core i5.
Memory 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3.
Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB

Hi David - are you closing by snapping back to the start point with Point OSnap, , or by typing C for Close? Or does it matter?


I received an e-mail response from the Rhino Mac Tech Support Team. With the information I was able to solve the crashing problem by deleting my Rhino - Preferences file. All is good. Below is the response with a link that explains how to accomplish the Preferences file deletion using the Mac Terminal Application.

This may be caused by settings saved in your Preferences. See which describes how to reset your Preferences settings. If this fixes your crash, please zip your saved Preferences file and send the zip file to us with a description of how to duplicate the crash.
