Blank screen after crash following renaming variables
Jamovi_Blank.jpg (140.29 KiB) Viewed 70 times
I have downloaded XLSX files from Google Forms. These files have some variable names containing the square bracket ([]) symbol. While I try to run computation with these variables, an error is shown that these variables contain no data. This problem gets solved when I remove the [ ] symbols from the variable names.
However, when I try to rename some of these variables, the software crashes and shows a white blank screen (Photo attached). All unsaved changes are lost when I restart the software.

can you confirm that this happens with the most recent version of jamovi, and if it's still and issue, can you create an issue on our issues page ( if you can include the original data file, and detailed steps to reproduce the issue, then we should be able to take it from there.

with thanks
