Deleting a bone


#1

I’m on Ubuntu 18.04.1 and Synfig 1.2.1, and deleting a bone (it is a child bone, but not a parent of any bones) causes Synfig to crash, so I’m basically stuck with this unwanted bone since the file has been saved.

I see other Issues about this on this forum and in Github, but the proposed solution is for when the bone is a parent of other bones, and they suggest that once the children bones are detached then you can delete the parent. But that’s not relevant here as the bone to be deleted has no children.

Wondering has anyone else had this issue, and is there a workaround?

Thanks y’all!

Did you try to check if the bone was still attached to any layer?
As a “last chance” you could edit direct the .sif (not a .sifz, export of necessary) and remove the bone (with a text or XML editor)
