Event Timeline

I confirm the problem with attached blend but I can't reproduce from scratch with 2.78c or master.

It looks like in your .blend Surface modifier is absent when we open it and it appears when we remove force field.

I can re-add force field and remove it a second time and this time, Surface modifier is gone.

Can you explain how you made a mesh with a Surface Force Field that does not have a Surface modifier ?

Add for example Bevel modifier to default cube. When adding Force Field, you need to choose Charge force and switch it to Surface type. Then try to delete the force

I tried to reproduce the issue following your steps, with no success so far… We really need a valid way to reproduce it to be able to investigate.

Ok, I recorded steps from above (made from default scene):

Tried those exact steps with current master, and could not reproduce the issue. I could reproduce it with official 2.78c though, so I’ll assume this has already been fixed one way or the other.

Please always try the latest build from our buildbot.

Actually, could reproduce it…
