Freeze when adding an image with a name containing "%" character

What is your operating system?
Windows 11

What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)?

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
As I already posted here with an example, Crashes when I add any Image

Add a video to the timeline.
Add a new video track
Drag and drop an image name with a % character in it on the new video track
It is hanging forever.

Yes, it seems that shotcut freezes every time when you try to add % in an image name. It’s a bit of a glitch, but don’t worry, there’s a simple fix. Just rename the image file and remove this % character from it’s name. That should solve the freezing problem. (but do not break the image format)

I thought it was a forum to report bugs, to allow shotcut to be better ? How can I report it to be fixed ?

You already have reported it and the developers are aware of your report. The person who first replied to you is just some person who just joined the forum. He’s not a developer of Shotcut.

Great, sorry to insist, but it was kind of strange not having an acknowledgement :smiley:

Great day to you all :wink:

Shotcut is an awesome software
