Strange. Publisher crashes on updating layout drawings and/or during publishing layouts to .dwg. I might have had a crash while publishing the same content to .pdf, but can't remember, as there were so many crashes that I gave it up and saved out each layout with the classic "save as" method. I tried the same project file on two different computers with the same bug reporter result.

Updating the layouts one by one is working, but updating a few selected at once gives me the bug reporter.
Publishing to .pdf works for now, but there is limited possibility publish to .dwg. I don't know if this did help in any way, but I succeded publishing a few layouts to .dwg after removing all regional "ščž" characters from the layout names.

Anybody noticing publisher stability issues or do I have a corrupt file?

Hello,

Thank you for the question and I am very sorry about the issue!

Which Archicad version are you using? Please make sure that Archicad is up-to-date to make sure that the latest bug fixes are applied.

From the description, I believe the file could contain some corrupted elements. Could you please share the file with us for further investigation?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
Minh

I am using Archicad 23 and 24, but I'm having problems on v24. All have the latest updates.
I've sent you a link to the project file via PM.

Hi all,

Thanks to Miha's help, I was able to identify the crash. Fortunately, it was linked to a known defect, that should be fixed when update 1 for Archicad 24 arrives (which is very soon!). As of now, I suggest using the following workaround if you have any issue with crashing in layout:

Make sure every drawing on the layout is set manual update. Always let the program finish the rebuild process whenever a different view was opened or a command was applied during these steps:
- without opening the layout, Open the Source view of the drawing
- select the Opening tool and then use Edit/Select All Openings (Ctrl-A)
- Delete the Openings and then Undo (this step will make sure that the view related data will be ready before the Drawing Update and therefore the crash can be avoided)
- Update the drawing from the navigator context menu and after that the Layout can be opened

Thank you very much for your understanding, and I am very sorry for the inconvenience!

Best regards,
Minh

Dear Fabio,

Thank you for the report and I am very sorry about the issue!

Is there a stable way to reproduce the crash? Also, does it happen even with a blank file, or with some specific files only?

I'm wondering if you keep a copy of the sent bugIDs? If not, all IDs of the sent crash reports are recorded in a file called SubmissionLog.txt. This file is located at:

On Windows 10: C:\Users\<user>\GRAPHISOFT
On macOS: <user home>/Library/Logs

With the bugID, I can run a quick check to see whether the crash is linked to a known issue.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
Minh

If anybody finds this useful - after having publishing problem, which seem to have some strange reason in usage of the Opening tool, I removed all such openings and replaced them with "legacy" tools - empty window openings, slab- cutouts, etc.

Since then I have no more publishing problems.
