@allthingsminecraft Hmm If this is happening with layer bitmaps…
- How many frames do you have right now?
- How many layers do you have?
- What is the current camera size?
- Can you check if the area you’re trying to fill that makes the app crash has any gap? (Please make an extra copy of the whole file before testing)
- I asked before but please visit the menu

If I follow your instructions I simply can’t crash Pencil2D. I too have 16 gb and an amd fx-6300 cpu (which is kind of an i5), but even though i’m not a dev, so far I’ve never had any problem with the fill tool freezing the program, at least on a bitmap layer (which is why i asked about the vector layer). This means that the problem might be influenced by other factors none of us are aware of yet.
In that case, please also consider sharing with us your current animation project file (PCLX) so the developers can investigate the problem more thoroughly. You can use any file storage service you prefer and you can share me the link via Private Message here on this forum.
I’m only asking this as the problem you’re experiencing could be related to the file itself because it’s simply not normal for the program to freeze so consistently when using that tool.
Edit: Thinking about it we could even use a recording of how the software crashes, so if you can use Open Broadcast Software (free) https://obsproject.com/ and record a simple video showing your exact steps from opening the file to crashing the file so we can have extra information to submit to the developers. You can upload that to streamable.com or youtube.com as unlisted.
