Just started up SD 7 for the first time, going thru the Prefs, and noticing that I can specify macros (called “expansion tags” for the Copyright notice.
So I change it a little, e.g. into “Written [[date]] by [[name]]” and being put off by the fact that it inserts a U.S. formatted date even though my System settings are set to German format. Just before wanting to fiile a bug about this, I wonder: What other macros can I use? So I click the little “?” button to open the help and find out that there are, indeed, macros that use the system settings, such as “short-date” and “long-date” (point: I am missing a macro that uses the “abbreviated” format).
So I think: Good, no need to file a report.
And then I see that there is also a “copyright” macro. And so my devious little brain starts wondering: What happens when I enter that there?
Making sure I have no unsaved changes, I bravely finish entering “Written [[date]] by [[name]] [[copyright]]” … poof!
And SD was so “smart” to save every change to any control immediately, so when I restart SD, it crashes again right away (may I suggest to save changes only when a text field loses focus instead of saving whenever its content changes?)
Fortunately, having the app “Prefs Editor” at hand, it was easy to find the bad setting and correct it.
I just love breaking, uh testing, new software! ;-D
