Vuo hangs when resetting/working with input ports

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. At random times, resetting the port type or changing it causes Vuo to hang

Have you found a workaround?

Save a lot and force close (which isn’t much of a workaround)

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 1.2.1
  • macOS version: OS X 10.10
  • How severely does this bug affect you? It’s annoying but I can work around it.

Thanks. We’ll investigate.

As a workaround — if you force-quit the composition (VuoCompositionLoader), does the Vuo Editor recover?

Usually, but not always. I have experienced a lot of sluggishness when dealing with ports in general as well. It seems like it’s opening the port types menu after resetting the port type that causes it for the most part, although right-clicking the ports also have seemed a bit unstable at times.

In Vuo 1.2.2, the situation is slightly better. Vuo Editor should no longer hang, so at least you shouldn’t lose unsaved work.

We’re continuing to look at the other issues.

This seems to have been fixed at some point… though if you are still seeing problems, let me know.
