Crash Drawing BCs After Deleting Region

Symptoms

GeoStudio crashes when applying a boundary condition immediately after deleting a region.

Cause

This crash only happens if the mesh is not being viewed (under View Preferences), because the mesh has not been properly regenerated after the region was deleted.

Resolution

As the bug relates to an out-of-date mesh, there are some simple workarounds to the problem, all of which involve forcing the mesh to be regenerated.  The two easiest workarounds are:

- Turn the mesh on under View Preferences.  When the mesh is on, it will be regenerated automatically.

- Save the file after deleting the region.  The mesh is regenerated when the file is saved.  (It is not necessary to close and re-open the file, simply saving it is enough.)

Status
GEO-SLOPE has confirmed this to be a bug in the applications and versions listed above. It has been fixed in version 7.15. Download a free Service Pack to upgrade to the latest version.
