Boolen tool freezes/crashes Blender
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

System Information
Operating system: MacOS Catalina
Graphics card: AMD Radeon Pro 5500 XT 8 GB

Blender Version
Broken: 2.9

Short description of error
Anytime I use the boolean tool, blender freezes and I have to force quit the program.
I always apply the tool so there is no stacking of instances. It freezes when I select the correct object from the drop down menu inside the boolean menu. Same place every time. The only exception is sometimes the very first boolean modifyer I apply in a project works fine. But any attempts after that fail.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Created a icosagon. copied an svg of numbers 1-20 into the project. lined a number onto one of the faces of the icosagon (like making dice). Once in position, clicked on the icosagon. Then, click on the wrench icon. Click "add modifyer". select "boolean" from the modifyers menu. Check the "Self" box. Click in the "object" field. Scroll through menu to select the appropriate number. Click on the drop down arrow and select "apply". Now delete the number/object from the outliner. Now try this again. By the fourth number/face, the boolean effect will freeze.

Is there an easier way to reproduce this error? I don't even know what an isosagon is. Maybe you can upload a sample .blend file?

@May (bifbangpow) Could you create a .blend file where you save just before selecting the object? That way we can try and reproduce the issue on our end. If you can, try and keep the file as simple as possible (only necessary objects, no needed images, etc.). Then you can upload the file here via drag & drop. Thank you.
