Guaranteed Crash?

    I just tried creating a new canvas and it didn't crash (Windows PC), but it didn't work either. It just opened whatever photo was selected at the time. It's the same in Browse and edit.

    EDIT: Oh, I see now that it did create a file, which can be opened but that's not how it's supposed to work.

    ... once opened, it seems there is no way to close it. Hmmm...   it says you can't close until you add a layer but there is no option to add one.

    I just tried it on my Mac. It did create the new Untitled.onphoto blank canvas but it also did open the currently selected photo I had been editing.

    I tried it again with nothing selected in the Browser and it worked correctly.

    no, not working. Once I finally get a new canvas, I can't do anything with it. can't even close it.

    Ok, the menus are working even if the right panel isn't.

    Did you apply any kind of a Layer to it? I used a Color Fill Layer. Although the program will create a totally blank Canvas, I don't think it allows us to save it that way. I've never seen a reason to try before. Have to see what support has to say.

    There is no option to add anything from the panel.

    I found that the menus do work though and was finally able to close it.

    I've created canvases before, This is not how it is supposed to work.

    I didn't even look there. I used the menu command.

    Definitely should be reported as some kind of funky weirdness.

    Yes I forgot to mention that if you have a picture selected it will open that, but the trouble happens when you just want to open a blank canvas.

    I haven't had a need for this but I could see if you were doing a photo montage or something like that it could be really useful.

    I put together a panorama that I couldn't get stitched properly using that method the other day. As long as you start with nothing selected, then add the images you want to composite into your montage before trying to return to the Browser you shouldn't have any problems. I've also done this for montages in the past.
