Editor frozen on Mac after installing and trying to create new project


Installed defold and tried to create new project and suddenly editor got frozen
Tried this


but still can’t even close the editor or restart the mac

Heres my specs

Can anyone help me please.
Thank you co much!!



Could you please try and start the editor from a terminal:

$ /Applications/Defold.app/Contents/MacOS/Defold

This will output logs from the editor and we will likely be able to see what is wrong.

You can also take a look at the editor generated log file: https://defold.com/manuals/getting-help/#log-files

Ok, but if it does happen again you know what to do to help us troubleshoot.

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me with this.
The frozen thing happened again, but this time i can’t open any project.

So I tried what you’ve suggested by starting the editor from terminal
and got this message.

I would really appreciate if you could help me.
Thank you so much!!!

It’s likely a part of project has become corrupted somehow.
Could you perhaps share this project with me/us?
