I get a crash just adding a bloc. And I am finding the top global area vanishes suddenly and randomly. It’s not in preview either. (13.6 KB)

Adding a Bloc can be a mission on its own. Either it needs to be fully visible or nearly completely hidden to be able to add one.

Is this a custom Bloc you saved or one that came with Blocs?

Had it with both. A single column bloc, and a custom bloc is just a bare bones one for Offcanvas, nothing special.

The crash log, maybe from the custom one.

I’ve found the cause and have this patched up ready for todays beta release. I’ll include more info relating to it in the build 9 forum post so please check back for more details.

Sorry for the wait.

Still tracking this down. Did any of the Blocs have custom Brics in?

Nope. Just divs, all made with blocs bits and pieces.

What about fonts, anything you installed used in the Blocs?

Nope. You should have the offcanvas bare bones bloc.

You need to add the offcanvas bric for it to be visible because it has offcanvas classes in it. Nothing else style wise that I recall.

Maybe it’s the combo? It’s never been a problem before

Try this version and let me know if you get a crash: Blocs for Mac V5.2 Beta Build 9

Im not sure yet, @Jerry also had a Bloc crash which corrected itself with a re-install. I’ll look at this more tomorrow and aim to get something in Wednesday beta.
