Short description of error
The Particle Edit mode does not work with Emitter type particle. The particle (particle paths) are not visible in the viewport.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Open this file: (or add a particle system, Emitter type, and bake to memory)
  • Switch to "Particle Edit" mode (particle disappear).
  • Click on Sidebar > "Tool" > "Options" > "Viewport Display" > "Particles" (blender crash).

Can confirm.
(it is 5 clicks, so I guess no file is needed here...)

Pretty sure these are related/duplicates, will check on this again:

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) It's more than 5 clicks, test file is always welcome ;-)
