Event Timeline

I'm already getting asserts when switching the particle edit mode. Looks like particle edit mode is (still) generally a bit broken (see also linked tickets in your other report T84797). I will take another look at this on Monday.

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) renamed this task from Crash when enabling Particles display in Particle Edit Mode to Particle Edit mode for non hair particles - particles viewport display option crash.Jan 18 2021, 9:59 AM
Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) changed the task status from Needs Triage to Confirmed.
Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) changed the subtype of this task from "Report" to "Known Issue".

Setting to Known Issue since old particles are EOL.
