Help to test if the issue can be reproduced

Hi Any one would give me a help to test the attached sif file with the latest dev snapshot from
and more dev snapshot information please take a look at the subforum

the procedures:

  1. open the attached file with dev version of Synfig Studio
  2. go to layer panel, select the “Group” layer,
  3. click the “Select All Children Layers”
  4. use transform Tool, select all handles (by defaults: origin, vertex, tangle, radius and angle)
  5. press right/left arrow keys from your keyboard randomly

after 7~10 times, Synfig Studio will crash and complain (OSX 10.7):

Windows 32 bits, Software renderer, Single thread disabled, no crash or hang.

CPU working hard! but /// can’t reproduce. Even trying to stress synfig by multiple and repetitive action on arrow key
Nota : the creation/destruction of “Please wait a moment” window is little frightening

Cairo Render / Debian Wheezy 7 / Synfig Revision: 20130902 Branch: master Revision ID: 3da991 /Build Debug Sep 2 2013

Ha ha! That’s part of the excitement! Would it crash? wouldn’t?

and even more exciting on compiz eye candy : Leaf_Spread when open , BeamUp at close :slight_smile:

Thanks both!

It is really bad news for me, and I hope I am the only one who is struggling with crashes of development snapshot versions.

On my daily workstation OSX 10.7, Synfig Studio[1] crashes randomly, it doesn’t matter what action I was doing, and frequently, 0~5 times every minute.

And I don’t have time to manage restore my OS to a fresh stage at the moment, I am considering to switch to Linux platform (VMware) for my icons tasks.

[1] Various dev snapshots I’ve tried:
a) build from git master via macport using customized build script.
b) the dmg files provided by Z.
c) autobuild script comes with git tree.

As soon as I can, I’ll test it on OSX 10.8
