    When trying to import a sprite image from this specific menu, GMS just hangs forever unless I click somewhere and I get this error. However, I can currently circumvent the issue by opening the Image Editor for the new sprite and import through that menu without any hangup at all.

    I didn't have this problem until the most recent update. :(

    Does this happen randomly, or is it 100% of the time every time you try it?

    It sounds like it might be the Windows Deadlock bug but that isn't usually 100% reproducable and happens intermittently and when you least expect it.

    It happens *almost* every time since the last update. Oviously, I can still work around it, but it sure is annoying.

    EDIT: Does appear to be the same or similar bug. I also cannot access the help pages because windows won't allow those pages to load. I had almost forgotten about this because I tend to look up things on YoYo's site directly through my browser.

    There's a high chance it's the bug rIKmAN linked because of the non 100% re-producibility, which is characteristing of that bug whether it's the file explorer or the manual failing to load. A YoYo stuff member recently said they are working with Microsoft to solve it, so it seems it's more of an OS thing than GMS2 itself.
