Qt creator crashing while editing .pro

  • Using Qt creator 4.11.0 on Windows 10 64 bit

    Currently I am experiencing frequent crashes of creator when editing .pro files. Not sure, if it happens only to .pro files, since I am currently editing only .pro file for finding/solving problems with new figuration.

    Very often creator is simply crashing while using ctrl+ sequences. This definitely happened with "Ctrl+C" and "Ctrl+S", possibly also with "Ctrl+V". It happened also with pull-down menus for paste, I believe.

    PC has been rebooted. keystrokes have been checked. The ones in question are only assigned to the standard actions.

    The problem is extremely annoying since these strokes are frequent used.
    Any suggestion what could be tried in addiiton?

    Hi @koahnig,

    do you have the Clang Code Model activated? Do you have crashes if you deactivate it for testing purpose? E.g. with the parameter -noload ClangCodeModel


  • @aha_1980

    Yes, CLang model is activated.

    [edit:koahnig] I am going to test a bit without CLand model. Just some little testing looked more stable, but it may come back.

  • @aha_1980

    A bit more working today after switching off CLang Code Model.
    Seemed to be more stable.

    @koahnig ok, another thing to try is to use clean settings, i.e. starting with -settingspath /tmp . I've experienced problems when using settings over several Creator versions, that were not reproduceable with clean settings.

    You might also want to use a 4.11 snapshot instead 4.11.0.
