text fields shift+click freezes the app

Recommended Posts

The bug affects all V2 apps, not just designer



. V1 has no such problem. This is what I did:

  1. select any text related objects in the document. (either frame text, artistic text, text path, table)
  2. Shift+click twice on any empty space (double-click is not necessary)
  3. That's it. App freezes.

At this point I can unfreeze the app by making the app window out focus and wait few seconds. If I minimize the app by clicking the task bar icon, the app will stay freezing. End task with task manager is the only resolve.

I can confirm this. Simple artistic text -> edit -> SHIFT click 2 times outside -> freeze



In some cases the app recovers after 20 - 30 Seconds freeze. In other cases i had a complete crash -> app window disappeared. In other cases i had to force shutdown via task manager. In case the software recovered during the freeze phase there was a siginficant CPU usage:
