Bug report #16541

QGIS crashes when choosing the option "SVG fill" or "SVG Marker" in the Style tab of Layer Properties

Added by Patrice Pineault over 6 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.18.7 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows 10 Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:not reproducable
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:Yes Copied to github as #:24447


It happens when I choose anything SVG-related when styling a layer. It just hangs forever as soon as I select the option. Sometimes, QGIS crashes with a "mini dump" notice. Sometimes it doesn't and I manually kill the process after a while.

It was happening in 2.16 also. I upgraded to 2.18.7 to see if it would resolve the bug but it doesn't.

I used SVG a few weeks ago with the 2.16 version on the very same machine. I don't know why it crashes now.

Can you please:

  • try without any 3rd party plugun and clean configs (backups and remove the .qgis2 folder)
