PM quits after ingest.
« on: October 12, 2017, 11:41:08 am »
Hi.

I have the latest version of PM: 5.0, build 18980 (60d39ba) installed on a MacBook Pro running the newest version Mac OSX High Sierra 10.13 (17A405).

This issue started after "upgrading" to High Sierra.

After ingest, the window pops up "Ingest Complete" as well as Mac's notification "Photo Mechanic:An ingest task has completed."

When I click on the Mac alert, PM crashes. When I reopen PM, it opens with an old contact sheet although I have the preference set to "open last contact sheet."

It's a minor bug, just wanted to alert the developers.

I was successful in recreating the problem. We'll continue our investigation into what is causing the crash.

Thank you for your patience.

Paul,

Please give this build a try: http://www.camerabits.com/download/PhotoMechanic5R19004.dmg

It should fix the crash by eliminating the use of Growl notifications (Growl is used to create and display the notifications and it is incompatible with macOS High Sierra).

You won't see the notifications any longer, which is unfortunate, but PM won't crash either.  Growl hasn't been updated in several years and likely won't be updated again in the near future.
