Author Topic: Crash report - Related to Favored locations  (Read 841 times)

Hello,

I've a few location on my HHD. After reorganization, I don't need as many favored but when I try to unfavor the file paths the program will crash immediately.

Let me know if you need additional information.

Hey, sorry about the issue! Off the top of my head I'm not sure why this would be happening.

I have two questions.
1. Do any of the paths you're trying to unfavorite have unicode characters in the filename? (Stuff like Chinese characters, umlauts, emoji)
2. Do those paths still exist on your hard drive?

Fav folders are stored in a "props" file in Documents/Medium/Preferences/medium.props.

If you open that file and search it you should find a section labeled "FavoriteFolders" and you can manually delete stuff from there. Be careful though, if that file has any typos it can crash Medium! You can also just delete the props file but it will reset you as if you are a new user.

Let me know about those questions though so hopefully we can fix this in the app. Thank you!
