#1115 Bibdesk new entry spinning wheel forever


System: Mac OSX Leopard 10.5.7 all current patches on MacBook Pro

After upgrading to 1.3.20, every operation which inserts a new entry results in a "spinning wheel" rendering the computer useless. No operation possible except switching manually off. Sometimes it happens during filling out the key of the new entry, sometimes it proceeds until the new entry is displayed in the latex preview. No crash report possible since the sysrtem does not react to any other input any more when it happens. It happens reproducible every time.

  • Please attach a sample of BibDesk taken while the hang occurs, see the Bug Reporting Guidelines for details on how to produce one. Otherwise I can't say anything, because I don't see the issue. Also, tell me whether you have script hooks (and if the problem persists when you disable them), or whether the hang also occurs when you don't show a TeX preview.

  • Closed due to WFM and too little information
