[Fixed] [] Appearance Panel Crash on delete layer stack

Recommended Posts


You may have this one logged but was testing multiple layers of 'fills' in the appearance panel mixing bitmap seamless patterns with colour fills really to see what kind of effects you can achieve for styles. Unfortunately I noticed that if if you stack 1 or more bitmap fills with a standard colour fill. then try to delete 1 of the layers.. AD will close

So I have been trying to in this one down but not sure of the exact sequence (whether 2 bitmaps stacked are causing the issue or 2 bitmaps + Standard fill layer)

1 new file (added artboard)
2.draw rectangle (I set it to 100mm x 100mm)/No fill /no stroke (to play with adding patterns)
3.Select the rectangle and fill tool (G)
4 choose a bitmap fill (Set to Wrap in this case)
5 Create a new layer in appearance panel and repeat (3/4)
6 Add a third layer with standard fill (any colour/edit opacity)
7 Select 1 of layers and try to delete. AD can crash

Tried to see bitmaps were the cause but appears to be when you create the third standard 'coloured' layer.
Tried to see if bitmap layer being selected was cause (ie where available to change bitmap settings)

Included file set...up  to adding third layer and 2 patterns (.png) (Exported from 1.65 AD file)
