Please try to fill the following template, whenever you report a bug to:
Bug Reports forum (http://www.pencil2d.org/forums/forum/bugs/)
Write a brief but concise description of what is happening in layman’s terms.
–Video or Image Demo–
Try to attach a screen recording (video or gif) or a series of images that will help the developers to spot the problem right away while following the “steps to reproduce” the bug. Usually mandatory for complex bugs.

Pencil Debug Window Report
Note: This is for Versions of Pencil that have the DOS Window / Linux Console output enabled, and should be shared by intermediate to veteran users if possible.

Windows Crash Reports
If your Pencil crashes often you can go to:
- Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer
