Short description of error
I am learning Blender, it's awesome! But when I need to use the Loop Cut tool Blender freezes (mouse pointer stops moving). I recorded a video, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kynO6Xgv1FQ
I recorded the video using my phone, to show that I am moving my mouse, and the mouse pointer freezes.
First I encountered this bug on Blender 2.91, then I checked on the latest alpha, both versions affected.
PS: As I experience and observe this problem more, I am pretty sure that the whole computer freezes. When I copy files in a background the copying process gets a freeze, and I can't ALT+Tab to other programs when Blender gets freeze
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Run Blender with the default cube in the scene
- Choose Loop Cut tool, mouseover the default cube
- Observe freezes
