Can't seem to reproduce this issue.


I don't think it happens here in my 2.8. But then again, I created a new armature, maybe you have something in your rig that causes this. (I couldn't open your file so tried the steps anyway)

Are you sure it happens every time?

Try open file from Blender -> File -> Open File scene and Blender open this. If open with two click icon - blender Crashing. I try repeat my steps and Blender crash again.

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) triaged this task as Confirmed, Medium priority.

Sorry this has been orphaned for quite a bit... but I can confirm this (as of rB9d32b9fb8a7f)
It is not an issue when you zoom in some more [or do the selection e.g in outliner], so depends on these bones being very close together in the viewport

I am hitting an assert here (without assert crashes a bit later)

base = ED_armature_base_and_ebone_from_select_buffer(bases, bases_len, hitresult, &ebone);
/* If this fails, selection code is setting the selection ID's incorrectly. */
BLI_assert(base && ebone);

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) renamed this task from Crash after parenting the bone and select the child to Editbone selection buffer crash.Nov 6 2018, 3:38 PM

Looked into this, for some reason the selection code gets back an object-id of 0 even though when drawing the object ID is 1 (passed to DRW_select_load_id).

And why this should relate to the bones connected state is quite strange (toggle edit-mode resolves).

Needs further investigation, will do after the beta.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) closed this task as Resolved.

Confirmed crash in older version, but appears to be solved in latest master.

This happened to me with a newly created rig.

This time I remembered to save before trying to parent. Removed all packed items from the file (i think)
steps to recreate

Center bone selected bottom bone
Ctrl+P, K
also crashes when choosing Connected

I realized that I had forgotten to rename the bones I did and it still crashed.

@Vicki Nadina Callan (viccallan), fixed, in future please submit new reports (this wasn't related to selection at all).
