Segmentation Fault when trying to add text to PCB


I try to add text to my PCB board and I am getting a segmentation faut.

segfault at 2000000b4 ip 00007f4ffc844713 sp 00007ffea3d5a900 error 4 in _pcbnew.kiface[7f4ffc452000+1100000]

This was working and now it doesn’t. I click on the place text icon and Kicad crashes.

pcbnew crashes when creating text

Thank You, that is what I was looking for. I assumed it was a bug because of the nightly build but just wanted to ask to be sure it wasn’t something I was doing.

I will report the bug.

Nightly build or not, a segmentation fault or other kind of crash is always a serious bug.
