The time has lastly come: following months of complaints from miffed customers – myself included – Slack has launched a repair for the rage-inducing drag-and-drop picture add characteristic that brought on its app to abruptly crash when hovering photos over the messaging consumer.
The repair, which is available to obtain right here, comes as a part of its newest beta for Mac (model three.zero.zero). For context, the drag-and-drop seems to be restricted to Macs solely, so Home windows customers can watch for the ultimate launch.

For these lucky sufficient to not encounter this bug, let me sum it up for you. Each every now and then, when utilizing the drag-and-drop characteristic to add photographs, Slack would crash as quickly as you hover a picture over its consumer.
The annoying half is that typically the bug would get triggered by merely dragging a picture over the app – regardless in case you meant to drop it in Slack or one other app.
Having spent a few days testing out the beta, I’m comfortable to report again that utilizing the drag-and-drop picture add characteristic hasn’t brought on Slack to crash a single time but – and I did a good quantity of picture importing throughout this trial interval.
Even higher, the beta seems to be operating easily altogether. So chances are high you received’t should cope with bugs till the official model lands.
Slack has but to set a date in stone for dropping the ultimate launch, but it surely must be right here quickly sufficient. Within the meantime, head to its web site to obtain the beta model.
Thanks for making my Christmas want come true, Slack!
