Weird bug in Zemax UI

Is anyone facing this weird bug?

Steps to reproduce the UI bug:

  1. Open an empy lens file (sequential mode, if that matters)
  2. Tolerance > Tolerance Data Viewer (leave it empty, do not load any file)
  3. Setup > OpticStudio Preferences > OK or Cancel

The UI freezes completely and no button can be pressed any more. I need to kill the application by left-click on the taskbar and “Close Windows”.

Version: Ansys Zemax OpticStudio 2024 R1.00, but I know from a colleague this happens also with the non-Ansys version.

For me, on Ansys Zemax OpticStudio 2024 R1.00, the software crashes, i.e. I don’t need to kill it.

It crashed with these steps on my side too.
