I was working on a very small model (in terms of size 340KB, and statistics 3000 edges, 1000 faces, and 91 component instances. No textures), and had just chosen the Mirror tool (TIG’s Mirror plugin) and was picking the mirror plane axes when SU froze with spinning rainbow wheel.
iMac Retina 5K, El Capitan 10.11.6, SU Pro 16.1.1451. No new plugins, no recent updates that I’m aware of to drivers, and I’d been working without issue yesterday for several hours.
No bugsplat, but the whole computer froze. Couldn’t even get to Force Quit with R-click on SU icon.
Eventually, after waiting several minutes with nothing responding at all, I had to hit the power switch.
Fortunately, I had AutoSave running as normal, and I lost only about 10 minutes of work.
Is there any other way on Mac of forcing a program to close?
