Description Of Issue

When I try to edit credits to an album from any connected client, clicking the “+ Add credit” instantly crashes roon.

  1. On client, chose an album
  2. Click the three dots under the album and choose “Edit”
  3. In the next window, click the “Edit Album” panel
  4. Scroll down and click on “Edit Credits”
  5. In the next window click “+Add credit”

SEE> Just a flash of the “Choose Artist” add credit window appears as Roon crashes (or is killed). No crash log is generated that I could find.

Console shows:

@support Really hoping this will get addressed soon as this has completely blocked my ability to enter important library data.

Hey @HaroldChasen,

Thanks a whole lot, not just for reporting this crash, but for following up on it. I’m sorry it took us this long to get back to you.

Your request is now in our technical team’s queue and they’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

I appreciate all the investigation you’ve done so far :pray:

Hi @HaroldChasen

Would you kindly use the directions found here and send us over a set of logs using a shared Dropbox link (or any other file sharing service).

Thanks Dylan, I’ve sent a link to them in a dm to you, cheers!

This is fixed for me after updating to (Build 778). Whether it was addressed directly or as a result of addressing a related or other underlying issue, I thank you.
