Description Manga Tengu 2022-09-20 20:00:51 UTC
I can't copy (cmd + c) a selection anymore. When I do so, I get the macOS color spinny wheel turning without stopping.
I'm not sure what causes this. Maybe an OS update ?

1. Make a rectangular selection
2. cmd + c

Krita freezes and it's over (even the edit menu in the menu bar stays highlighted). If I was in the middle of a save, the popup still appears and the save still happens hopefully. If I switch app and try to switch back to krita, it won't show up. I have to get it with mission control at this point.

I copy to my clipboard... and coffee appears in my cup.

MacOS 12.6

I've done another copy and it worked. I don't know what made the difference. I'll try to come back with more info.

It seems to happens on new files only.
So, this is what I think happened:
-I was drawing on a new canvas
-I fired a save
-while the file was still saving, I copied a selection and Krita froze
-the save success popup still appears but Krita was frozen to kill

This also happens to me. My platform is Windows 11, Krita version 5.1.1. I also tested on my Android pad, same issue happened. Looks like a bug for all platform.

The way to reproduce:
1. Open a new file
2. Create a selection mask layer (either global or local selection mask layer have the same issue)
3. Copy that selection mask layer
4. Paste layer, then Krita crash and exit

In my case it already crashes at cmd C (copy)

This bug should be resolved as of the latest 5.1 nightly build.
