Description of Issue
This started happeneing today after starting Roon. It was fine last night. Roon will crash when I type in the Album view filter field. Sometimes it’s after 1 or 2 keystrokes, sometimes 4 or 5 and sometimes when I hit delete. Roon software is up to date and I’ve tried rebooting the iMac but the problem still persists.
Anyone else had this happen?
Used to happen to me. That’s stopped now but instead it crashes when I try to edit an album

Ben here with the support team, thanks for your patience while we work through each thread. Are you still running into crashing issues when tying in the album filter?
If so, could you please reproduce the issue, and share the specific date and time of the crash? Is there is a specific pattern when typing that results in the crash? A specific character, etc?
I’ll be on standby for your reply.
Hi Benjamin, thanks for replying.
I have just reproduced it now. 11.58pm UK time. It’s gotten to where one key stroke, any key, will crash it but I can paste text in to the field and it’s fine.

Thanks for sharing that info
@fireapple, I will bring this issue to our developer call tomorrow and should have more information to share then.
In the meantime, I want to see how things run on a fresh database. Before doing anything, though, please make a fresh backup of your current database.
After performing the backup, please follow the steps below, and test using the album view filter before loading up any local libraries, or restoring from a backup:
Backup of your current database Exit out of Roon
Navigate to your Roon
Find the folder that says “Roon”
Rename the “Roon” folder to “Roon_old”
Reinstall the Roon App from our
Downloads Page to generate a new Roon folder Verify if the issue persists on a fresh database before restoring the backup
No problem with a fresh install but the problem still persists after restoring.
