ARDUINO 1.8.12 keeps crashing on MAC

Arduino has been shutting down repeatedly throughout the day while I'm working. I think it started after an update. I'm not using the IDE all the time but yesterday it crashed 3 or 4 times. Today once already. JUST FYI.

Gonna try an "hourly build" for now. If that doesn't work I'll try beta.

Has anyone else reported any issues on MAC?



There is a known bug with Arduino IDE 1.8.11 and 1.8.12 on Mac, related to changing graphics modes:

I believe the same bug will apply to the hourly build. I'm not sure about the beta build, but I'd guess the same bug applies.

The recommended workaround is to use Arduino IDE 1.8.10. You can download it here:
