Problem Description
Construct 2 crashes when I open layout editor for layout which is not already opened. It happens only when "Projects" window is dettached from main window. I am using two monitors and I keep the "Projects" window on second monitor. When I double click layout to open editor Construct 2 crashes. When I attach "Projects" window to main window everything works fine.

Attach a Capx

Description of Capx
My example project. I checked on different projects and the problem occurs on all of them.

  • open Construct 2
  • open existing project
  • dettach "Projects" window from main window so it will float freely

Expected Result
Layout editor is opened in new tab.

Can't reproduce here with provided project.

In the past, any crash at the point a layout is opened has always been a graphics driver crash, because that's the point we create an OpenGL context to display the layout and that's where buggy drivers crash. So on that basis I believe this is a graphics driver issue.
