This could be related to odd crashes related to the Alt key. They aren't usually common enough to recreate though..

This is definitely recreatable though. I just confirmed it first try.

It doesn't happen on a newly created project. It odd that it happens on the Start Page when no other projects opened. I seen it happen with a old saved project r134 and reopened and saved the project in r135. I will test the other PC for the same issue.

Edit: Happens on both computers.

Just installed R135 and this reproduces for me as well which makes it pretty much unusable. Launch construct, press alt+tab and it crashes. @Ashley any chance for a quick interim build to resolve the alt+tab issue?

Actually, simply pressing alt causes C2 to crash even on start page.
Probably some issue with the recent changes on the UI library (keeping the folders, maybe the custom themes).

New to Construct ? Where to start

Oops - the change so that 'alt' stops snapping in the layout view accidentally assumes that a layout view is always visible. It shouldn't crash if you have a layout open, but it does crash if one isn't open. It's fixed in the next build.

I don't think we'll issue a quick fix for this. Builds can be pretty time consuming sometimes, and problems are to be expected in beta releases. If it's a big deal for you, roll back to r134 for the time being (or try to remember not to press alt :P)

The alt key caused random crashes before all this, with more people pressing it more often we may see a lot more of that...

I popped back in here because I just pressed alt to see if the toggle bookmarks showed a hotkey in the event pane, and it crashed while editing Pucked.
