Crash when trying to move pins




I finally get around to trying all the newstuff in VL! Fun.

I got around a bug: when I click on the little gray arrow to the right of an operation, like that:

(I’ve made a second input called Result in this case, but this has nothing to do with the crash. Also happens when there’s only one input)

When I try to interact with the inputs, I get an error, and vvvv crashes. Here’s the error message:

************** Exception Text **************

vvvv crashes when I try to patch after this error - windows says ‘The program has stopped working’
I haven’t found which interaction lets it crash - I was able to select it once, but after deselecting and selecting again it crashed. Also when trying to move or rename them it crashes.

Hope that helps, tell me if I should try anything else.


i don’t get a crash, but can’t move them (alpha from 24.10.)


the crash is known, thanks.
@sebl you can only move the pins after you unchecked the misteriously unnamed “auto sort pins” checkbox right before the pins…
