Tag Selector Freeze

edited June 10, 2019

Not a big issue in my case, but I have a recurrent problem with the tag selector. By default, I keep the selector hidden. But anytime I want to open it, I get an error asking to restart Zotero and to report the error.

    Well, no, Storage Scanner add-on is clearly not the culprit. I created a unique tag on a unique item by hand and when I try to open the hidden tag selector, it freezes and Zotero must be restarted.

    After you restart Zotero, is the tag selector open, and does it work properly? Can you then close it and reopen it? In other words, does this only happen if the tag selector is closed at startup?

    After the restart, the tag selector is opened and works properly. I can then close it and reopen it. I did some other trials with a start, tag selector hidden:
    1. open the tag selector by dragging the separator: freeze and error,
    2. open the tag selector by clicking the separator with the "hand" mouse pointer: no freeze, no error

    And the same occurs on the Mac version.

  • Am I the only one facing this issue?
  • Still exists in version 5.0.71. What could explain this?
