Short description of error
Blender immediately freezes upon clicking on materials menu
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- open blender 2.8
- No need to do anything else other than Click on materials tab on the right hand side.
- Pull your hair out because blender freezes immediately and this never happened with the older versions. And of course this new version, with features i've been waiting years for, now doesnt even work.
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).
Default start up.
