Windows Did anyone ever work out the sprite editor crash?


This issue is quite random but when it hits it is extremely annoying. I have encountered this issue since starting with Game Maker 7. Sometimes, when I edit a frame in a sprite, and then close the editor, the entire software freezes and the window fades white. The only solution is to open task manager and force close the software. Clicking X does not close it.

This has happened over multiple PCs (although all windows, mind you) and over different software versions of Game Maker (including 7, 8 and Studio). It is still happening to this day with the current version of Studio.

I wish there was an easy way to replicate it but it only happens occasionally. I can't be the only one encountering this bug. It happens to me at least once a month.
