Short description of error
It seams that if the same Grese pencil data block its used on objects and inside VSE selecting grase points using right click inside vse crashes blender, but selecting all using A didn't.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
1- open the file

Ok, indeed this crashes.

The reason is that all the tools currently assume that all strokes will be valid for being manipulated in the editor in question, but that is not always the case (i.e. here, a 3D stroke was encountered in a 2D view, but since the relevant settings were not able to be initialised, it crashes).

Working on a fix now :)

Thanks
i imagine something like that could be happening, the work around was to copy the points from the vse the ones im interested on, to a new grease pencil data block and that work, but it took a wile to figure it out ^ -^,
