Crash after Layer Merge Down

Postby vggundar » 18 Jul 2015, 17:07

I discovered a bug and a work around for BlackInk Steam v0.225.1998 (D3D11). It tried to send a crash-report email through the bug-report dialog, but it said it couldn't connect to my email account (so that may involve another bug as well with multiple email accounts in Windows 7 Live Mail).

The Merge Down bug manifests on a multi-layer BlackInk file (I believe I had 6 layers in the file). I did a Merge Down from the layer tool bar for the top most layer into the layer directly below it. And then I saved the file. It crashed during the save creating an incomplete temp file that only had some of the layers (my original file was not damaged thankfully). I believe the error lies in the Merge Down code- it does not decrease the layer number variable that the save routine uses to encode the BlackInk file. I say this because my work around is to add another layer after doing a Merge Down and then deleting the new layer just added. This allows it to save without crashing.

If you need further details, let me know. Thanks.

Thanks for the report.
We are digging this bug right now. I hope it will be fixed in the next release.
Moreover we have implemented an Autorecover system that will minimize the impact of such crash in Black Ink.
