Sorry, still crashing :*(
Trying to find the pattern. I've renamed files to be solely alphabetical now so no numbers or characters and I still get crashes on jpegs when naming a track that adds the dodgy jpeg and then straight after creating a new track.
Will try converting them to PNG and see if it's a compression bug thing.
Any ideas guys? :) thanks!

It seems to be with any files I have added recently since they don't show up in the same way on the list. They have full path names and not shorter ones which make me thing somehow autocolour is getting them in a different way? (see attached photo)
Also here's another crash log in case it's different :)

Thanks for all the details, Matt!
Fixed for the next build ( r1080 ).
For the record, "short paths" are used for files located in REAPER resources directories (or sub-directories), full paths are used otherwise. It's REAPER convention nout ours (less blabla in RPP files, portability, etc..).

Hi Jeffos, Hope this isn't a silly question but build ( r1080 ), is that automatically part of what is now v17 (and therefore I can just download it again with auto icon fix) or is it only updated once v18 is out? :)
I'm not trying to rush the release or anything just wasn't sure if I was somehow meant to test build ( r1080 ) somehow?
If not, no worries, I have patience! :)

yes, this means this fix will be part of v18 (I put commit numbers like " r1080 " as notes, just to know how what was fixed when).
